Very runner friendly, first few miles through the town centre with a couple of short inclines, reasonably flat until 9 miles then another longer incline.
Second half of race follows the River Trent and round Holme Pierepoint (National Watersports Centre) this is all fairly flat finally returning to the start/ finsh area on Victoria Embankment.
I did my first half marathon here and found it easier than expected

New Forest marathon is September I think. Haven't done it but I've heard it's a good one.

Yup , New Forest normally mid Sep.
Not done it before but they do a full marathon and a halfM , and I've only heard good things about it.

Depending on my Autumn schedule ( at this early stage I'm aiming to run Chicago) I'll probably do the halfM - missed it this year due to Windsor.
If I don't run in Chicago , I may well do the full marathon .....
