Thanks for your detailed responses, but as previously stated I posted and started this thread as an expression of interest to participate, as and when all those details you require become available I will post both here and on the website. I understand if you want to wait until it's 100% confirmed, but all we are asking is for an expression of interest to participate.
Thanks for your reply, we are of course asking people to register an interest in the proposed southend marathon at this point. We dont assume anything is a given at this stage but after our last meeting with the council and the police things look promising.
We look forward to coming back with some good news soon.
Runningman Events are currently in talks with Southend Council and Southend Police in regards to hosting the 2012 Southend Full Marathon, we have had positive meetings with the council so far and all going well it looks like Southend could be hosting a Marathon once again in 2012.
More information as it is received will be posted in our facebook group and by joining the group you will be the first to hear of any breaking news. There will also be updates coming through the official southend marathon site which is currently under construction.
What we need from you is an expression of interest to participate in the Southend Marathon which will be held in April 2012 ( final date to be confirmed). you can do this by either joining the group on facebook (link below) or by registering your interest on the official website once it is fully up and running.
So all those that have just had your rejection pack through from the London Marathon there is light at the end of the tunnel.....you can still train with your mates that did get into London and put all that great training to use when you run in the Southend Marathon.
Be part of something unique, get involved and register your interest.
Dont forget to tell all your friends whether there a runner or wish to support or even becoming a marshal on the day of the event.
