am just curios does anyone think its realistic to run a marathon at 18 and if so what sort of time could be acheived.
Well I'm doing one 3 days after my 18th (FLM)
So yer I think its pretty plausable! Aiming for a time of around 4hours aswell?
It's not UNrealistic - it depends on the person and the training.
If you do the training (without injuring yourself) then you can do the marathon.
As to what pace - no way of guessing unless you are running already.
If you've already done some races (or once you have) then use a calculator to get an idea of what you might do over other distances.
Which marathon are you wanting to do?
Any ideas or just any that come along?
And I will be doing FLM if the stupid online registration form recognises that I WILL actually be 18 on the day.
im 18 on the 23rd of april! and im doing FLM.
The race is on the 26th so you should be fine if you can get a charity place...
There are still plenty of golden bond places available!
So try and get one of them?
