Might join you for this. I did it in 2012. The first half is hilly but stunning. The second half can go on a bit  but it's a great sight seeing the stones for the first time.

Just before jump ship (There's always next year!) I'd just like to wish all you lucky enough to get place good luck and I hope your training goes well.

Just signed up. Just using it as a LSR and a bit of motivation to keep the training honest before Crimbo. Should give me a good base for Brighton in April. Look forward to seeing you all down there for a wee dram!

Google "Berlin Marathon 2015" then click on "Registration 2015" Do not go directly to the main marathon site. I have tried it a few times and it seems to work every time. Good luck all.

Born to go slow: 

Then click on "Entry Drawing"

Meadower: I used Event 2:09 for the New York marathon and it is slightly more expensive than doing it yourself and you arremorse restricted on flights and accommodation. However it does make things like getting to the start line easier. 

Brighton Marathon 2015

Did a steady 14 miles this morning. With the Swindon 1/2 last week and Tough Mudder next week I've not had much time to recover from the Loch Ness marathon 3 weeks ago.

Helga 43: looks your doing the Bath half as well. 

Time to get some speed in my legs between now and Christmas before the proper training starts again.

Well let's hope we all get a place. Having done Paris and Rome marathon it appears that most marathons on mainland Europe require a medical certificate. But let's be honest, if your prepared to train for a marathon anorang anise the foreign travel getting a medical certificate isn't too much to ask.

Just entered the Berlin marathon 2015 ballot, so just thought I'd kick off this forum. Sounds like it's about a 50/50 chance of getting a place. Fingers crossed.

Glad I booked Brighton marathon because as expected, I too got the reject magazine. I know I've done London a couple of times but it's not the be all and end all. Not ran at till since Nessie. Will try to get out on Sunday.
