Hi, Gary from Manchester, i ve just done my last longish run on taper now and starting to worry if the course has any nasty suprises eg hills Also , how does times compare to other marathons? Thanks for any responses. Gary.
I'm not speaking from experience since it will be my first marathon on Sunday, but from what I've been able to find out it is mostly downhill for the first 6 miles heading to the Loch side, apart from a small climb at around the 4 mile mark.
It's pretty level going for the next 10-11 mile along the Loch as you would expect, but at the 17 mile mark there is a nasty climb. Don't think there is anything much after that of note.
