I' was born and grew up in Lancaster and would very much like to run a marathon in my home town. But a lack of useful event/course info and some frankly unnecessary and disrespectful sarcasm has prompted me to enter the Cheltenham Circular Challenge on the same day - an event I can very much recommend having previously run it twice.

on the same day I will be doing Torbay Half marathon as part of my holiday in Devon

Does anyone have anymore information on this? Course link etc?

Social Media is not the answer to everything but search for the Lancaster Castle Marathon on facebook for course updates, course videos and photos or email

Hi Paul,

Sorry if that came over a bit off, i was just writing it on the thread rather than in response to your post! There is a artistic map and a Gmap now on Facebook. We will soon be posting photos and videos from around the course.

However, the Gmap takes in bridleways and cyclepaths so it is purely for use of knowing the route rather than exact spots for mile markers.

Hi gunner,

 No thanks for the information. I have took a look on facebook and found the artistic map. I have done the half a few times so recognise most of that course.

For anyone who hasn't taken a peek......on facebook search for Lancaster Castle Marathon and keep up to date with maps, hopefully very soon course videos and hopefully some inspiration to make it around the 26.2miles!

Hi all,

Sadly I am old fashioned and not into Facebook, but I have managed to work out this forum. If there is anyone out there who has read about the race profile then please let us technophobes know. Is it flat, undulating, hilly or all of the above ?

Many thanks

Sky racer

Face book says the following today if that helps anyone;

BREAKING NEWS! The race organiser has been with the police all morning!! However, it was only to have a ride along around the course! Final thumbs up from the police! They said it is a bit H***Y....any clean guesses?!

I was hoping to enter in order to try for a 'Good for Age' time - for LVM next year (this is one of the last marathons before the deadline). So currently umming and arring.

More details on the course would be fab

I have entered after running a nightmare at Manchester. I was looking for 3.15 (good for age). Lucy I found some photos of the course on facebook.

This may help you a little - A good section from what i can see is the same as the Half marathon.

 Hope this works, this is the half marathon i ran in Novemeber 2011

 There was also a map on facebook but cannot find it

2 threads for this in.

G of the bang I too will probably do Lancaster in my attempts to exorcise the nightmare that was Manchester.   I did the HM course in Lancaster last year and it is pretty flat.

Thanks guys. This is sounding promising. If training goes well I'm there, if not might do Jolster Norway on 7th July.
