The calendar above features all the marathons listed so far for 2012 on runnersworld.co.uk (with or without online entry through RW!) - it's a showcase of the many and varied marathons on our event listings, nothing more, nothing less!
It's free to add a listing to our event search - and we will update the calendar as the year goes on, just drop us a line to let us know your event's on the site (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Bear B. Hind, we do charge a fee per entrant for entries through our system and have always been totally transparent about this. It reflects the reduced admin bother for organisers, the use of our secure payments system and also the unparalleled (we think) editorial exposure to the UK's running community through newsletters, previews and in the 'online entry' box on the homepage. It's not 10% though - it's on a sliding scale and the exact pricing structure can be found on the event organiser information.
Hope that clears things up! We're as passionate about the UK racing scene as you are, and as proud of the awesome range of marathons in this country. Featuring only the races listed on RW is simply a manageable way for us to cover the UK's marathons, and promote what we think is a great event search system - and one that's easy and free for any UK marathon to get themselves included on!
