What a great thing. A marathon, in June, quiet time of year.  In the North, not too much travelling then.  Lancaster, only ever passed it on the motorway, told it scenic, even got a castle (in the name).  Undulating, so it will provide some challenge.  Spotted on100 club site in late 2011, OK look out for that then. 

 £38!! are you serious.  Where's the info?  Where's the route map/elevation?  Where's the parking?  What will happen on the day?  Hydration on route?  Website? Less than 90 dqys to go!!! Get it out there, or this will end up being worse than Manchester 2012!!!!!!!!  Or wait until September and do the Great Langdale Marathon (my best and slowest run ever) organised just the way it should be.

Interesting!  24 hours on post and no one is interested enough to reply, let alone answer my questions.

Is there a website, with anymore than the entry form?

Thanks City fan (and Lanc mara if you listening), but like many people there are lots of good reasons why I can't do facebook .any other sources?   Anyway nice to know it;s still on.  If my training goes well, i may well end up there!

That is the correct route charlie, cheers.

 Another map will be going online shortly and is it currently being drawn up by Michael. The course has had to be completely changed  due to a venue change so another map is being drawn up.

 Happy to field any questions at:

 Hope the training goes well KK, if not for the LCM but for Langdale.

Hello King Kong

how are u

Great Langdale is a fabulas event, organised by Ron Berry and his associates and family

But the info on this Lancaster run will be interesting

I think that the lack of firm information at this stage is a little unsettling when you are training hard for an event especially when it's for a charity...

Er, why is it the Lancaster castle marathon if the route doesn't start/finish or go anywhere near Lancaster castle?
