Hi. Ran VLM this year and after a slightly dissappointing time I want to enter an autumn one to get over it! What are everyones favourites? I live Derbyshire so could do with a central one.

The Robin Hood full marathon in Nottingham is back this year, though they haven't confirmed the route yet. If the first half is still the same as the half marathon route it's quite nice and flat though.

+1 Chester October 6th entered yesterday after also doing VLM. Pretty east to get to from Derbyshire.

Loch Ness is amazing, Well organised, challenging and fantastic scenery. 29th September but be quick if interested, think theres only around 4,000 spaces

Thanks all - Chester would be great as in laws live there, but unfortuantely I am at a wedding Hoping for October or later as September still warm and I don't do warm! Will look at Nottingham though - didn't realise the marathon was back.

Leicester is worth considering.
