Cost of the marathon
It's a shame that it's gone that way.
I guess they've seen that they've got a sell-out event and will try and push it as far as they can.
Who actually gets the money?
... but it's all for Charidee
I'll give both a miss, thanks!
Might think about an autumn mara, though.

Really Wilkie. Which ones were you thinking about? I might do one this Sunday? I did a 12.5 miler last Sunday. Have I done enough training? (I am serious btw)
Marathon des Alpes-Maritimes. Nice to Cannes, 4th November. Currently €55 to enter (it goes up the nearer the date you enter). No admin fee though
Whether you should do a mara this Sunday I leave to you to decide!
Charging people to spectate at the finish line? WTF?! How would they even enforce that rule?
I ran Brighton this year and it was a pleasant, well-organised event. But if I was paying nearly £60 for my entry, I would be expecting a lot more than they provided this year. Complimentary massages at the end of the race, a technical t-shirt for all finishers and A LOT more support on the Road to Hell. In fact, I'd rather the course didn't go past a sewage treatment works at all thanks. Oh, and I'd like my mum to be able to watch me finish the race without having to pay for the privilege of standing on a public street!
