Hi everyone! I'm trying to find details of Saturday marathons. I'm a church minister so it means that most Sundays are work if anyone could recommend a marathon held on any other day than Sunday I would love to hear from you.

Great Langdale. Looking at this list, it looks like Saturday marathons are hilly marathons!

Southdowns is Saturday!

Wow...looks like I better start doing some hill training! I can get away with two Sunday marathons, but hoping to find some more non-Sunday maras...have done Belfast and White Peak twice

All the Endurance Life coastal marathons are on Saturdays, but yes- more hills!

Kent roadrunner marathon is the only other flat road Saturday one I know of.

2 more Northern Ireland marathons to add to the "Saturday marathons are hillier, but more scenic than Sunday marathons" theory; the Mourne Way and the Causeway Coast are on 8th June and 29th September respectively next year.

There's a marathon double in Liverpool one New Years Eve and the other on New Years Day, you can do one or both, it's a small event, multi laps but flat as it's on the river front.

I don't know why there aren't more Saturday marathons. Much better to have a wwekend away an be able to celebrate on the Saturday night

Does it have to be maras? Lots of half maras and 10k's round too. See Shakespeare Rotary Half in November for example

Another hilly Saturday marathon . . . The Picnic (insanely hilly!)

Highland Perthshire marathon (and half) is on Saturday - 1st Saturday in September. Start and finish in Aberfeldy. I did the half this year - good race; marathon is 2 laps of same course. Maybe not as hilly as the name suggests, but not flat either.

Thames meander was a Saturday as well as many French marathons (Medoc, Eco trail de Paris). Enigma running often run events on Saturdays (e.g. Fox@40 next weekend).

If you are a bit flexible about distance some of the multidays welcome single day entrants.

Stockholm, Oslo and Helsinki are on saturdays.

Thanks everyone for your help! Straycelt, I've done the Shakespeare half a couple of times...good fun! Got loads of good ideas now.....happy to hear more...

Milton keynes is on a monday this year, and relatively flat.

Isle of Wight marathon is on a Saturday as I recall (early to mid May). It's a tough one mind, you wouldn't think you could fit that many hills on such a small island!
