I usually run the London marathon each year (good for age), however through total disorganisation I've missed the deadline for entry for 2014.

So which spring mara do you recommend instead? Can't afford to go abroad.

Marathon of the North in Sunderland (however yet to be confirmed it is on) rumours are that it will only be the half and the 10k

don't know where you live but Sussex is great - really well organised, beautiful, tough, and you can park really close!

I have heard Llanelli is really good too - same day as London I think

I did Greater Manchester this year. It's the flattest in Europe so good for a PB and seemed pretty well organised and supported.

I'm in Devon but don't mind travelling (a bit).

Edinburgh? Almost guaranteed to be a scorcher though. Or Milton Keynes?

We won that as a female relay tean this year, the 4 of us managed a sub 3 mara, wish I could do that on my own!

you could try Eden Marathon, around the bio-domes or if you want something a bit tougher then Duchy Marathon, think that's a couple of weeks before London, and I think there is Scilly Isles (or somewhere down South West) on same day as London. Good luck anyway

KK come do mablethorpe on 6th October. 

Entries still open. Heard its flat too.

Have a year off. Its easier not running marathons.

Maybe next year, I've already got a race on that day.

Lochaber.  Bit of a trek but a lovely course, well organised race, etc, etc.  Round about the same time as London too.

Halstead. beautiful scenery and fairly well supported. hilly though....

There's that new one starting in Liverpool next May too. Gotta be worth a look.

Advice worth thinking about!
