Once did the 3 peaks challenge (walk) Ben Nevis, Scaffel (pardon spelling) and Snowden, a running pal and I chose to run up and down Snowden because we got 'bored' having walked the others. I was much fitter then but I can fully appreciate how hard Skiddaw was!
Not sure about the Kingston Marathon but a lot of people on this site seem interested in it so it could be worth a look and I would have thought it would be flat which is perfect for you.
Good for Age entry for the FLM is the best way for you to get in although a non-running pal of mine entered this years (for a laugh????) and got in first time!!! A few expletives passed my lips when she told me I can tell you!!!
Snowden would be great but yes too hilly for a first one but it is definitely on my list of 'to dos' too.
How are you finding the difference in training, if in fact there is a big difference, pardon my ignorance I have never been a short distance runner.
