Soory for my French-English....
C'est une honte, ils n'ont plus le marathon de la route il - que c'était une bonne course.
J'ai aussi fait le demi-marathon et le 10k, les deux parcours agréable.
le marathon est remplacé par un maratrail encore plus prêt des monuments historique et commémoratif.
Venez essayer... vous ne serez pas déçue.
The marathon is replaced by a Mara Trail (same distance)
You run more nearly of the historic and commemorative monuments.
Come and try you will not be disappointed.
Phillippe, acceptez-vous la licence Compétition de England Athletics en place du certificat médical pour les coureurs anglais?

An article appears in the June issue of Women's Running, which is out now.
See you in september
My club is making a trip out this year.......
What is the name of your club? (of what city?)
its in south wales...
Islwyn RC ?
That would be good, Seren, to meet up again!
Wilkie.......unfortunately i'm taking September out as a rest month so my hubby is going.......
Oh well, it was a nice idea!
I don't know if any of my club will go - they were put off by the idea of the med cert, so being able to use a comp licence will help.
The other issue is accommodation - where do your club members stay?
one of the guys is sorting out the accommodation for everyone
looks a great event for clubs as there are so many options
I give you address of Web site for the accommodation
