That second lap on the Greenway is mental torture! it goes on for ever. I had a duff race 3.37 last year murdered the greenway, this year like pulling a tractor through quicksand.Looking forward to 2016.
Hi Heidi have to echo what HeatherS says. Its a great marathon route really good for PB hunters. I have ran it several times and each year it keeps getting better and better.The race organisers Chris and Andy are super guys and have worked hard to make this a good one. I run about 20-30 marathons a year and this for me is a must do.
Abingdon is fast but its windy and bendy on a multitude of surfaces. If you could do an earlier one look at Manchester in April its the fastest one out there or Chester in October is fast and fantastically organised.
Hi Karen I've run it three times its a fantastic race. It's a fast course not hilly except for a sharp one at about 24 miles. Support is good though there are some remote bits.I have run 50 marathons and this amongst my favourite I also have my pb here.its superbly organised cannot recommend it enough.
