Just been looking at the details for Birmingham on the Great Run site and the marathon is due to start at 09:30 with the half not starting until 13:30 so this might actually be a benefit in that the crowds may start to gather and grow during the marathon rather than dwindle. If I'm looking at the route map correctly the lapped section of the marathon, miles 6 to 23, appears to be on the half course. Looks like different start and finish for the full and half as well.

Got something to say?
