Berlin Marathon 2015

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.
