If your taking a water belt freeze the bottles and take them in a cool box, then take them out at the last minute - that way they wont be luke warm by mile 3.

Thanks everyone for tips and advice. It was as expected extremely hot. There were some poor runners collapsing in a few places. I went through a bad patch at 4 mile, overheating. Got rid of the cap and just threw water over my head at the next drinks station, from then on drank a bit, threw a bit and amazingly I bagged a PB by a minute! Well pleased, only ailment is a small blister on the ball of my foot.

Nice work, NM. That's brilliant, especially in those conditions.

Got something to say?
