Manchester, NW England:

I'll do it if I don't get in to London.

Popular date, clashes with the new MK marathon.

I'll have you know Manchester was beautiful in April this year .......its the only bloomin' Summer we've had so far tho!

I'm up for this too, but will be waiting til I've found out about London first til I enter.

Flipping heck, there's a marathon in Manchester, in April!!!! I only found the us one when I did a quick search.

As it's the first in a decade it could be special. Thanks for flagging it up.

I ran the last Manchester marathon in 2001 I think it was the same course they used for the Comonwealth games. It was my first marathon and I could hardly walk for a week. Memories!!!

Looks like a flat course too!

Mandie_R: I would enter Manchester now - the odds are you won't get into London, and even if you do, you can defer. 

I'm going to give it a miss this year - only because I have a place in Brighton, and already booked a hotel room for me and the family. But I've volunteered to help, and hope it runs again in 2013.

For those who don't know the area, it runs ou through the suburbs, and through the edge of leafy Cheshire.

We're in.  Forget London - overcrowded and a royal pain to get to and from.

Manchester much more appealing - lie in, in my own bed, with a proper breakfast and a short drive home.

Agree with DeliH it would be rude not to!

Just signed up didn,t want to risk missing my new local marathon.

Just need to shake of a back injury thats crocked me for a couple of months and i'll be back to my laps round Chorlton water park.

 Might need 2 find a few new routes though don't fancy 26 laps round the lake nice as it is.

I'm in too. Paid my money, assuming I'll not get London, again

Soooo tempted. Starts about 15min walk from my house so ideal location. What a great place for my first mara!

How are you?

I may yet decided to do this remarkable event to celebrate my 40th birthday year and 2012 Olympics year?

Signed up, time to up the training. If I get in London I'll defer for a year. Can't miss first Manchester mara in ten years!!
Can't wait

Has anyone got any good ideas for a warm-up half-marathon in Feb / March? I think there is one in Blackpool around then, but I don't know much about it.
