A group of friends are looking for an interesting european marathon in the Spring as a good excuse to get away.  So far, Madrid and Rome are looking popular, although I'd probably prefer something a little flatter - Any recommendations?

Hi Alli me and a friend are doing Rome in march. If your looking at doing Rome decide quickly as there is a six nations rugby match the same weekend in Rome so cheapish accom is running out fast. But the idea of running in the eternal city is so appealing.

What about Copenhagen (19 May) or Stockholm (1 June)? I've signed up for Stockholm next year - not done either race before but both seem to get very good reviews and if like me you don't like running in heat they are a better option than southern Europe. No cobblestones either as in Rome!

Does anyone have a list of marathons with their total elevation change? I signed up for Rome because I thought it was pretty flat, but it seems not?

I'm doing Barcelona in march, think that's flat more or less

Yes Barcelona is a pretty flat.  Comfortable temperature too. City scenic!

I'd like to do it again - it is a lovely place.
