I am so disappointed that I cannot do this race, as I am doing the GSR on the same date.

This was my first marathon, will have to try and do it in 2007.

Bugger is it the same day ?

I will also have to find another late year marathon looks like cardiff or luton for me

year 4 at the GSR for me

Gobi - GSR is two weeks later that last year. I have paid for GSR, and it is at the end of hubbys holiday. We thought we would take the caravan and spend a few days there and explore Portsmouth.

Hi Tracey

I have already entered GSR as I live about an hr away and had planned to do Abingdon as my attempt at a 3hr marathon

I am looking for an autumn marathon to attempt a P.B. would anyone who has done this one tell me if it will be good for that. Is there any support along route? is it well organised?
12/01/2006 at 17:08
yes it is a good course
12/01/2006 at 17:25
Oh no, not again...

It is a fast course. It can be lonely if you are a slow runner, but very supportive marshals, one even gave me a mars bar. I finished in 5:53:53 and the was still people in the grandstand to cheer me home.

Wendy, and for us ladies, plenty of bushes and pub to go a toliet.

Wendy, the course loops around and goes through the town centre twice, so lots of opportunities for supporters.

Must enter early this year!

Great race, good marshalling and in the main good support.

Abingdon 2005 was my first marathon and I'm planning to be back this year.
