    Hi there! I am really interested, but have a couple of questions and a request for advice.How tough is the route and how long will you have the stations open for?
    I have done a dozen half marathons - almost always in 10 min mile pace, and have done a full marathon at inside 11 min mile pace, but have been scared off the North Devon marathon because of the toughness of the route (I am doing the half). Is this a step too far do you think? I want to run another marathon this year, and this fits the bill in terms of time of year for my training - but it is obviously a stretch. Too much do you think?
