I tried emailing the contact and it bounced back
I've searched in all sorts of websites, like marathondiary etc and it's not there. Anyone from Taunton know???????
Date is normally confirmed around the New Year and entries open at about the same time. I've done it for the last five years and, from memory, it's always been the first Sunday of April so the 7th would seem logical.
In my humble opinion, it's nowhere near as tough as Dartmoor Vale, Dylan. The hills aren't as steep and there's lots more fantastic support on the route.
I've always loved the Taunton course - it's by no means flat as a pancake, but it is fast and I've set both my half and full marathon PBs there.
See you on the start line....
Is there a time limit fot this ?
the taunton marathon is a terrific race.can not understand why it never gets much publicity and why it is never advertised on the runnersworld sight.it is also frustrating that the entry always opens so late.i have missed it on a few occasions by booking other races first due to this.
by no means a pb course though.very tough hill at 11 and 23 miles and also a few drags on the way out between miles 3-6 and 16-19.i set a a new pb when i did the half but you really feel the hills on the second lap if you are doing the marathon
we did the FM some years ago -
we've also done the HM a couple of times - a grand event it is
lovely course and scenery.the only downfall of the full distance in my opinion is second lap can be a bit lonely,plus lack of energy drinks being handed out which would help marathon runners in the later stations.difficult to avoid the wall on just water
assuming this is 7th april.cant decide whether to make the 2 hour trip for this one or do the cotswold marathon on my doorstep same weekend.taunton is much faster course but the cotswold one is a scenic cracker to
