Is your question about booking your place?
Is there water stations along the Half Marathon Course?
Hey - yep every event from this Organiser has water stations – where and how many depends on the course and the distance.
Are CHIP times provided by this event accepted as qualifying times by major marathons?
What time does the 5k run start ? Various websites say 09:45, 10:45 and 12:00 !
Hi, Is there a Strava route for the marathon route, appreciate it is laps but trying to check elevation but can’t find anything. I ran silverstone last year thinking it would be flat but is was undulating for majority of the course. Thanks
Hello, according to my Garmin record, the total elevation was only 21m up for full marathon course. I has remembered due to nearly perfect flat course, it killed my same muscles and the latter half was a disaster to me.
Very similar to Silverstone. Looks flat but one pretty sharp hill in the back straight that’s hard work especially if the wind is against you.
Hi, can you tell me how many laps of the course the marathon is please?
Hi there! The Marathon is 8 laps of the Bedford Autodrome! :)
