No cheques cashed yet...ho hum which too choose.

One abroad would be nice but the cost puts me off....surely going to Paris is gonna cost about £400? Plus I do enough travelling abroad on my own with work I don't fancy going running abroad on my own...anyone any good experiences and examples of how much a European marathon cost them?

Use a low-cost airline. Someone I know has just booked a weekend in Frankfurt for £2.99. We had a weekend in Olso last year; fares were £9 each.

Cost isn't the real problem. If you don't like travelling abroad on your own, there isn't lot to say. You could do Lochaber in Scotland or Loch Ness.

BBB, There's already 15+ forumites booked up for Paris and I'm sure that the list will grow. You definitely won't be alone there!

Peppermint Hippo ...... Recovery - a week between marathons is not a problem 2 weeks is much better but I think a lot of it is in the mind ..... I did 4 in a month all around 3:30 mark (1st one was 3:21) Look at Sir Rannulf Finnes.... 60 years old and 7 marathons in 7 days plus jet lag .... amazing. I did struggle with Amsterdam and then Dublin recently, but i didnt prepare if any at all. for the 4 in a month, I was averaging only 25 miles a week and a long cycle once a week. Its a tremendous buzz flying to an international marathon which helps too.

Do you think it is time to really think about alternatives now or would you wait another week if the cheque hasn't been cashed so far?
And looking at EEyin's list Rotterdam would really be the best option.

I'm waiting till the magazines come out. Some people didn't have their cheques cashed till a few days before the magazines arrived last year.

And one other thought. Does any of the alternatives has a half marathon attached? A friend of mine still owes me 13.1 miles support on a marathon from this years Robin Hood marathon.

Good choice Lars ... I applied on Thursday.
