See you at the finish line, LWR! Can you believe this country doesn't have jelly babies? Got some gummy bears but not the same (not planning to carry them but for munchies right after the race). The race ends here: icelandguest.com

Unfortunately, it's at the top of a 3km climb :(

Thanks everyone! I'll let you know how I get on.

I missed this thread yesterday - hope it went well!
(my suggestion would've been to go shopping, but it's always possible that wouldn't have been the most practical :-) )

MADE IT!! So pleased! My time was 2.00.02 which is more than respectable. It is technically 21.1k and it is quite a tough course (lots of hills, including pretty much all of the last 4k). I stuck one gel in my shorts' pocket and stuck the other on an elastic band on my wrist, but after about 5k just carried it; then ate it about 8k. I had another gel around 8k and although the last few k were hard (HILLS!), I never felt that I wouldn't be able to do it.

The 10k (and marathon) are all on the same route, so I got to 11k about a minute after the 10k set off and it was a nice feeling to catch up some people on my way round. I even managed NOT to be caught by any marathon runners (who started one hour before us).

Great run! Thanks for the advice, everyone! xx

If you have any, use duct tape on the number for the tri vest so you won;t make holes.
