There are bigger cities that don't have a marathon.
Don't worry Digger, the flat ones just mean you have to run faster!
My rule of thumb is that I will travel the length of the race from my house.
for example there are four marathons within a 26.2 mile radius of my house, and I did them all this year.
The only time I went outside this radius for a marathon was for the Picnic Marathon, which is obviously a rather unique event.
1860 feet of ascent.
It it is probably one of the tougher half marathons in the UK!
