A shiny brand new, just out of the box marathon!

Steve Cram is organising a road Marathon for May 6th 2012. Details are on this link. £30 if signed up before the end of November. Starts and Finishes in the Stadium of Light in Sunderland.

I think this will be my replacement for the abject event that was Edinburgh this year.

Anyone else fancy it?

If I wasn't doing London I'd be tempted by this one.

at Chester they had your name on race number and so supports where egging you on calling your name if you look at Ratings on this site you will see why they also did a dvd of the race and shows different bits with music and the winner finishing you should give a go and see for you self I will be there again

Looks good this one will consider it as cannot do Liverpool next year (or Chester) as I need to find a spring Marathon will probably sign up early as well ...

I have just signed up.

I did the kielder Marathon for the last two years and they were well organised so this should be good.

I have done the 10k race here for the last three years (two when it was the great north 10k before they moved it to Gateshead) so it will be a shame to miss it but I wanted to bag another new marathon!

I'm in for my first marathon, just hope it finishes inside the Stadium of Light, that would be the icing on the cake.

Isn't it time that this thread was resurrected? Could be a lonely run for me if there are not many doing it.
06/04/2012 at 20:04

Very wise, too much nipple chaffage with the placing of the badge.

Appreciate this is a new event but does anyone know how hilly/flat the course is? Seen the route map but not being from the area have no idea if there are any inclines/declines of note!
