I'm planning to do my second marathon in 2013 too, but Im thinking the Mablethorpe Marathon which is Lincolnshire way but its not till October but its nice and flat I hear and no winter training with it been in October.
I second Happy Wanderer would be a damm shame for Hull not to have a Marathon lets hope it happends in 2014!
I echo Martins comments some of the minor issues I could live with as it was a new event but the course length mistake has taken away the sence of acheivement to some runners and even rankings to the more advanced runners.
What I thought was terrible was having to run across open roads i.e the Hessle Road roundabout under the fly over. A group of around 10 of us I was running in had to actually stop on part of the roundabout and wait like pedestrians while a marshall didnt even stop the traffic.
Also running along the back of Hedon Road towards the docks was unbelieveable.
A path about 8 feet across with two way lines of runners with a drop into the rocks on the shore line was well.... I couldnt believe it!
Anyways I best not start to winge its been mentioned before lol
All I can say is lets hope hull does indeed have another Marathon and its well run and safe.
Thanks to Peter and anyone involed who may help this happen
Hey Peter. Yes I was already thinking that there wouldnt be time to do a 2013 event anyways now. Its good that talks have been held regards a future event, would be a shame for Hull not to have a Marathon with running been fairly popular in the city.
