After braving the high prices, poor service, terrible food (thank god for Wagamamas!) and strange mix of regulation (no-one dares jay walk), and liberalism (there are some mind boggling tv channels) of the very interesting city of Copenhagen, the Brighton raiders (‘take that for the monasteries!’ [thanks for that one Neil]) lined up for the marathon. The temperature was perfect, but there was a nagging cold wind, and the course while flat has many turns. Well organised and supported, the Danish seem to be quite a sporty lot judging by the number of cyclists, and were keen to show their appreciation. Of note was the way the runners were weaved through busy roads in a phased way, analogous to the way pedestrians cross Birdcage Walk during the London marathon. Very clever. Neil was disappointed with his run but he hadn’t completely recovered from a cold, and Kader was pleased with his efforts. Full results.
