Shakespeare Marathon

Posted: 8 July 2000

Shakespeare Marathon: Sunday, April 28
Scenery, speed, value for money

This is the Midlands’ alternative to London, and is held on the weekend nearest to Shakespeare’s birthday, in Stratford-upon-Avon. It is a pleasant,
reasonably fast rural two-lap event. There is also a half-marathon.

£8/£9, payable to Rotary Club of Stratford-upon-Avon by June 8. Entries on day (£12).

Oh I dunno just happened to be looking for a marathon around the FLM date and found the Shakespear one on a search and seen as there is all the logistics on there website I wondered if anyone rated this one. I ran London this year and was rejected for 2003 so if this one is any good will run it....

There is already a thread on this somewhere.Basically it is two laps , undulating but no way can you call it hilly, it is run in conjunction with the half. The one odd thing i found was that it started at 1.00pm and it ended up being a bit warm.. Even so it was a pleasant enough run and if you want you can make a weekend of it as it is normally held the same weekend as the Shakespeare birthday celebrations so their is lots going on.
The Website is. try this for further info
