Stupid Royal Parks HM.
Hmmm, never mind. At least I know that someone who will probably realise a week before the event that they better go for a job in preparation for it has got one of the places in the ballot
Hmmm Maybe you are on some sort of black list DF3.
Maybe change your name by deedpole
yep, missed out again too. and this is actually my local half marathon.
still at 46 quid, they can forget it from now on...
Same here, 3rd attempt. Damn!
This is my local, so the amount I save on travel and accomodation make the really high entry fee more bearable. Though sadly no place for me either!
At least you are £46 better off now. You can probably do 2 races with that money.
yep. but it would be nice is someone could run a cheap and cheerful HM in central london. closest thing at the moment is Ealing - which doesn't exactly have sights.
It would be nice but seeing as they are selling out at £46 there is no reason for anyone to do that.
A quick google shows Basingstoke & Cardiff having half-marathons on the same day. The £46 might just cover the train tickets.
There are other half marathons
Admittedly neither sound as scenic!

It would be half the distance for me to get to Basingstoke ....... but have you seen the place? Its the place you would go to for work, but definitely not to live. Its got about as much character and class as Jordan on a night out.
Could anyone recommend any half marathons in autumn time around the London area for under £30? Ealing is £32 and as previously said may not be the most scenic of routes.
This one is not to far out from London and cost £20
anyone know of a nice trail half in autumn, pref in the south east? I've never done a trail and would like to give it a go. Not one of these sufferathons through iced-over mud, but a pleasant, flat-ish trail.
I had a look at the New Forest Marathon and half marathon in Sept, which looks like it would be fun. Anyone done this or similar?
Mr Ginger, I have done the New Forest half (the full marathon is essentially the same course, they just go off on a tangent half way through the race to make up the rest of the distance).
Can highly recommend. It was p....ing down with rain last time, but hey its the UK, thats like saying 'Sometimes it gets hot in Saudi Arabia'
DF3 - I know you are joking, but the Basingstoke half course actually avoids the town (apart from the start and finish) and if you're quick you can get to the station without being recognised.Jordan lacking class? How dare you, she is a role model for 000s of girls (well at least those in the Basingstoke Wetherspoons)
Ginger - Farnham Pilgrim comes recommended...15th Sep half and full marathon optionsFarnham half/full
im doing an off road marathon on sunday for 8 POUNDS!!
get a hot meal at the end with that aswell PLUS check points to stop at and scoff cakes and the like

There is the Clarendon marathon between Salisbury and Winchester in early Oct. I'm pretty sure they do a half.
Good spot and its also more of the 'trail' course that he was after.
