Comments:Another marathon double weekend - this time in aid of the
Brathay Trust. A simple out & back (and out & back and out &
back...) route along the seafront in Dover - including half
a mile out to sea along the Prince of Wales pier. I signed
up to the Sunday event, leaving my Saturday free to think
about doing the Saturday marathon too - or just a local
parkrun instead (which is what I opted for at Pegwell Bay
near Ramsgate).

The route had to be changed late on as building works along
the promenade cut the planned turn-around point short -
resulting in us doing more laps up & down the pier (17 in
all!), and actually meant the course would come up long at
about 27 miles rather than 26.2 - but this was explained
clearly in advance, so we knew what we were getting
ourselves into.

The RD took up position by the clock tower, and counted us
all out and back in again, and so on and so forth until we'd
clocked up the required distance. A low key event, but well
marshalled (at both ends and in the middle), with masses of
water to cope with the sunny weekend. Well organised
throughout, and even the "ultra" distance didn't cause any
