Camelbaks Banned from ING NYC Marathon 2013

Well, fuck me, but they’ve only gone and banned Camelbaks from this year’s ING New York Marathon, for security reasons. Shouldn’t complain, really, and they apparently have water stations every mile from mile 3. Let’s hope they are more organised than the Edinburgh half marathon a couple of years back when they had their water stolen before the race, but didn’t tell anyone, and of course it was bloody roasting and we all (possible exaggeration alert) nearly died. Looks like I now need to purchase a “fuel belt” to take my gels and bars in. Feckers.
