Does anyone cramp more on the 6ft than they'd usually expect?  I often get hamstring cramp (not quads or calve) even prior to the coxes river even if I don't run faster than in training.  To coxes river dehydration can be pretty much discounted (even though that's not viewed as a primary cause of cramp anyway), which means it's some element of environment, training or pace.  
Just wondering if others experience this.

No cramps at all for me at 6ft but so far I have had no issues with cramps (touch wood) but I have seen plenty of runner having cramps at 6ft

Yep - I always cramp at some stage.  This year only an incipient hammie cramp so I nursed it.
