Jon and I went up early the day before to Stratford-Upon-Avon and had a look around.
On the day of the marathon there were 40 mile winds and 60 mile gusts and it was raining, hard. I was only able to do the half marathon due to the weather. I think if the weather had been nice, this would have been perfect for a first marathon. The track goes around twice and there are 2 big hills but the course was lovely.
It was great despite the weather!
All the Best!
