Does anyone have any ideas for a good first marathon?-flattish course,enough people to get lost in but not too many.
North of England would be handier.

never done it myself - but lots of people swear by (& at :-) ) Nottingham, Robin Hood Marathon - there's been loads of threads on it so if you search from the forum front page I'm sure you'll find people that know

good luck

Manchester is supposed to be OK - I think it's around Sept time so the weather shouldn't be too extreme either way.

Manchester v good. Go for it.

Blackpool in June. Agree about Manchester so depends on what time of year you want to do one really. Avoid Leeds, two nasty laps (sorry Monique)

Blackpool is a good flat course, but depending on your speed, you could end up running much of it on your own.
It was the 23rd June this year.

Dangly. The reason you spend so much time on your own is because no-one can keep up with you!

Think that should be "THAT no-one can keep up with you". Its 22nd June next year. Blackpool that is. I'll be there.
