I'm interested in forumites views on whether Abingdon would make a good first marathon. i'm looking for a smaller event than the likes of the VLM and a fairly straightforward course. i will have a couple of years running and several HMs under my belt by the end of the spring, and if i get under 1.40 at Reading, it will be time to step up...
Yeah go for it Baldbloke.
Abingdon is a great marathon but it fills up pretty quick so you have to get your entry in as soon as entries open. I think you may have missed this year, i'm not quite sure.
Registration for the 2013 Abingdon Marathon is now closed. Please see http://bit.ly/Pusb63 for further information.
damn and double dam. cant believe it sold out so quickly
Baldbloke, get in touch with the organisers, Abingdon have previously operated a waitlist. You should be able to join that and still have a good chance of getting in. They also permit private transfer of entries as well. All is not lost.
If you manage to get in, it is a nice small mara and suitable for a first timer.
