I had signed up for the Brathay Windermere Marathon but am out of the UK working, it was going to be my first full marathon, as I live in the Lake District in Windermere itself it seemed quite apt so cheesed off to be missing it.
However, every cloud has a silver lining, and this situation means I am 99.9% guaranteed to be in the UK for this fab looking run so signed up for this a few days ago, can't wait. The website does a great job for all the information you could want. Actually looking forward to the bus ride. looking forward to the views of the Loch and surrounding countryside.
As with you JenJen84, I have also entered the ballot for VLM 2012, fingers crossed for all who have entered.
