so.is the course for this going to be the same as last year?what do people think.if it is then were in for a bloody tough marathon again! good to see that we will now be getting t-shirts after the race
assuming this is 7th april.cant decide whether to make the 2 hour trip for this one or do the cotswold marathon on my doorstep same weekend.taunton is much faster course but the cotswold one is a scenic cracker to
lovely course and scenery.the only downfall of the full distance in my opinion is second lap can be a bit lonely,plus lack of energy drinks being handed out which would help marathon runners in the later stations.difficult to avoid the wall on just water
the taunton marathon is a terrific race.can not understand why it never gets much publicity and why it is never advertised on the runnersworld sight.it is also frustrating that the entry always opens so late.i have missed it on a few occasions by booking other races first due to this.
by no means a pb course though.very tough hill at 11 and 23 miles and also a few drags on the way out between miles 3-6 and 16-19.i set a a new pb when i did the half but you really feel the hills on the second lap if you are doing the marathon
