Race conditions

Mild, a little sun, gentle breeze. Pretty good.


A fairly flat, fairly fast course (only 2 hills of any note and neither are really tough). 2 slightly differing laps. The only parts of the course that are challenging are a 3 mile stretch of lap 1 and a 5 mile stretch of lap 2 that are on the Greenway (a compacted grit path) - but even this (at least in the dry) was nothing too out of the ordinary. Total race entry is about 3300, of which around 850 completed the full marathon. Well supported, and very comprehensively marshalled (water stations every 2 miles). Chip-timed. A good alternative to a Spring big city marathon.
