Silly question... how many kms is a half marathon? OK i found it on Goggle - 22 km roughly.... I have never run more than 10km.... Is it hilly?

A friend said he would drive me down if he could get accomodation too. He is omni but aspiring to be healthier and veggie (and no objection to vegan food just cant manage it himself). And in case this gives the wrong impression he is not my boy friend!!!!!! Everyone seems to think he is but we are just friends!

[quote="Fruitbat"]Is it hilly?

"The very attractive course - taking in the old city and the stunning Avon Gorge - is generally flat, offering great potential for fast times and personal bests" according to the website.

I've just heard that one other person can be put up when in Bristol. I'll let you's know of any more accomodation offers as and when. :wink:

I have spoken to the marathon helpline today who confirmed that there are only 1400 of the 12000 places left to fill. So if you haven't entered yet, and are up for it, do it now. :wink:
