I'll be the first to say the London Marathon then.  It's (literally) on my doorstep and even when I can enter as many races as I like, I plan more or less half the year around a Spring marathon. I'm more likely to keep up a decent volume of training if I've got a marathon to aim for.


Youre mad for voluntarily living in London. I have to commute every day into this shithole.

So was it you then David who was eagerly reading a copy of this months RW on the 7.20 into Cannon street last week. If it was, I would lose the bright green trainers they don't go with your suit.

...That is unless I can add my own caveat: if all expenses are paid for race entry, travel, and a long weekend around the race (one needs time to acclimatise!) then I could possibly forego the London Marathon for a yearly pre-Christmas trip to New York.

In that case the Niagara Falls marathon.

Does this assume that parkruns, being 5k time trials are not races and I can do as many of those I want?

I guess I'd choose a hilly off road marathon, bit pointless if all I could do was one 800m race each year.

Human race, which is the only race you can enter given the criteria. *nods*

I have heard the finish to the race sucks though.

That's what everybody chooses

Mrs. hog mousey - you can interpret the rule however you like.

I was thinking of "races" as being ones you have to pay / register for in advance, not just turn up with a membership card, so parkrun wouldn't be restricted.

PhilPub - good choice on Chicago! and Tommygun, MdS. Phew! Isn't there anything that long but not so hot?
