Never done it before, however, I got a ballot place last year but didn't take it up because of the prohibitive cost.Hollywood said:OK
So I've got my ballot palce (thanks to the Times early one) and including race entry, accomodation and fuel I think it will cost somewhere near to 150 pounds to run GNR. Is it worth it?
So was it worth the dosh then?Hollywood said:Well the good news is that my other half now also has a place through the main ballot for this year's race....
So it looks like we're both going to run it - I'll post back in October about whether or not it was worth the money!
To do it once... yes! And the new organisation at the start this year was good which helped a lot.Steve said:So was it worth the dosh then?
No, not the nicest of routes...too many long straights.Trinity said:... I've ran much much nicer courses and if it wasn't for the distraction of so many other runners and also the support I think this course would be pretty boring.
Also, it's not a PB race... far too many people. The only way you can (almost) guarantee a PB is if you start way ahead of your allotted start point....
