Cazmo - there are a couple of tricks
- the best one is find a group of people who plan to run a flat pace - looking for a sub-2 group shouldn't be too difficult.
- personally, I quite like the virtual trainer that comes on most garmins. Set the pace you need, and just try to stay within a few seconds of that.
Just bear in mind that garmins typically measure a course as long (technically, a HM course is at least 13.1miles) - so I use 13.2 miles as the distance.

I read race packs were being sent from the 25th Feb.
Mine hasn't materialised - am I the only one?
[I bet it'll turn up tomorrow now I've written this]

Mine arrived about a week ago, I would give them a call if I was you.

Thanks PP - I have all the receipts, so can pick a number up if I have to.
They do ask people not to call - but it'll be a pit of a bugger if I do have to collect a number.
Fingers crossed it turns up in the next day or so.

Note for any Armed Forces Fetchies (Army only) - Plenty of space still available for Army places - and you have the added benefit of the MOD picking up the tab!
