Best UK autumn marathon or half marathon

I didn't do MK last year Christine.  I did the same event in December that 2wheels mentions and that wasa nice course (considering it's MK after all!)

3 miles on the treadmill for me yesterday gym session tomorrow

 

I have huge respect for anyone that can cope with treadmill running - My mind wanders and I fall off the back!!

I'd endorse the Marlow event - lovely club-organised race.

I'll be at MK Christine, but only doing the half not the full.

A few of us took part in the Bacchus event last September Christine (and we've entered again for 2014).  There is a choice of marathon (2 laps) or half (1 lap).

oh - in case I forget - there are seven "feed" stations, all offering wine......

2015 London Marathon Ballot

I had my email immediately and so did my son.

We're both in the ballot - again.  We'll both probably get the usual "Dear John" magazine and email in October.....

sorry to hear that Loz - that's what put me out of the Brighton marathon a couple of weeks back.

PS - he'll do anything to avoid my cheese sandwiches.....

and you clearly haven't run Paris, Where last year we had cyclists weaving in and out of the runners, a little old lady crossing the road with her dogs and an old guy with his shopping trolley full of baguettes crossing the road

The same sort of thing happened in Rome where you had tourists "wandering" across the road near the Spanish Steps as the runners were coming through...

Perish the thought of a tourist getting a medal

Some people would say that my marathon-running style and speed is akin to that of a wandering tourist!!

I've finally made my mind up and entered this race, but doing the half.  I'm going for the Kent Roadrunner Marathon at the end of May.
