New forest looks a bit quiet, I want a bit of a crowd to help pull me through my 1st,that's why I have thought about bournemouth....ok it's really pricey but for me it's a big one

If someone was to offer me £20 for my place and pay the £10 transfer fee I'd be interested.....just realised I'm washing my hair on that day now.

Bit spammy I know but message me if you like.

I don't think u can beat Chester for a lovely first time marathon lovely route going underneath the iconic clock tower in the city heading out into Wales and back into England again and great support its fairly flat, only one killer hill that's worth noting at mile 24 but the last 2miles running back along the city walls and into the stadium at the end really is great, oh and nice techy t.shirt and awesome medal

My first marathon - might need big event to get me through. Can get to it easily too. Might risk bad organisation some earlier posts have said. Need to make a decision and hit the road. Summer training has got to be better

Signed up. It will be my second marathon. Bit worried about reviews concering event organiser. But I'm running for charity so it's all for a good course. Incidentally, if you haven't booked a hotel yet and plan on running, get a wiggle on. Rooms near the start/finish are getting snapped up quickly. I managed to get a family room at Carrington Hotel for two nights - the last one. Hoping the race won't be too windy or it will be a real slog.

Thanks for tip. Hoping to crash at in-laws nearby. Going to go for it.

I have signed up for this race and have since found out I can't do it. Does anyone want to buy my place from me?

Still thinking of it as Iam local,but the prom is not nice to run on,it looks flat but it ain't! There is a gradual camber to it and it does your angles in running on it....but still at just do it

My club was offered a free place if it advertised the event but having read these reviews I wouldn't even do it for nothing. Thanks to all posters.

Does anyone know how many people will run the marathon??

Who knows"

I have 1 guaranteed entry that I am no longer able to use.  If you are interested I will split the fee i.e. entry fee is £25 and transfer fee is £5 so the race will cost you £30.

Any takers email me on

Event full now! How many signed up?
