Paris is a popular choice. Thats what I am doing and many other forumites. Least the fleece wasnt bad eh? (ALthough I'm now covered in blue fluff;-))

Shakespeare marathon in Stratford, usually a week or so behind the FLM.

The fleece is quite smart have not warn it yet, will take your advice and wash it before i wear to minimise fluffage. Also do you not think people will look at you knowing you did not actually get into the marathon if you wear the fleece.

Maybe a rival marathon could be organised where an entry requirement is a rejection letter and a bequethment fleece. What do ya reckon.

Rotterdam is on the same day and has a very good reputation. I am going for that one.

Also on the same day is the Tresco marathon - eight laps of one of the Scilly Isles. RW did a review not so long ago.

I haven't been rejected yet but i am a bit pessamistic considering the odds, but being a first timer i would like it to be something a bit special. So Paris is looking very attractive.
