Can anyone suggest UK events with marathon and other distances at same time?

Our running club is looking to do a club marathon next year, but a lot of our members wouldn't want to do a marathon so we are trying to find somewhere where people can compete in a marathon or shorter distances; perhaps a relay, half marathon or 10K. 

I know about the Robin Hood Festival of Running, but wondered if anyone knew of any other events that might suit us. 

Thank you.

Dartmoor Vale, Newton Abbot has a marathon, half and 10K held together. This year's is October 18th, website says entries open from April but weren't open when I last looked.

The Luton marathon (usually early December) you can do relays in teams.

The mablethorpe festival of running has a marathon, half marathon and 10k on the same day. Nice day out on the coast!

Unfortunately it isn't being run this year, but should be back next year.

Why restrict yourselves to the UK?  Amsterdam has a mara, half mara, and 7.5k all on the same day.

Easyjet over for the weekend!

Great ideas here.  Thanks!   There are loads of choices around that I had no idea about.  Need to get my research head on now...

Wilkie - the club has done Amsterdam in the past, but so many of us work in schools now that we felt it may be a little difficult to get back from abroad and to school the next day.

Last Saturday I ran in the `Bolt Around The Holt 21Km" - they also held 5 Km & 10 Km races starting 5 & 10 mins later - different colour race numbers.

it was a 5 Km trial course - the 21Km runners did a `special loop`.

I thought the whole event was great - good numbers too. A bit for everyone. 

Could / would I want to do 8 laps....  maybe not this year
