I'm in the 10k as well, #2009. Hoping to do better than last year, where I just dipped below the 1hr mark.
I think theyve said there's over 4000 doing it, so a good effort to double the numbers from last year.

It was colour coded last year in ghead and im thinking it will be in sunderland to.
They didn't last year. You just had to push in , if you wanted to be near the front. And I wasn't aware of any pace runners last year, again maybe that is something new this time around.

I'll be there to see you at the start mate, but will probably be tucking into my fish n chips on the sea front by the time you finish.....
