Brighton Marathon 2015

Posted: Yesterday at 16:20

It's easy to forget SM, espec as the ballot opens, then closes in just a few hours.

I think I'll aim for a new event instead that weekend now, the Southampton Half-Marathon

Rock and Roll Marathon in Lisbon

Gutted that I'm not going to Lisbon as I'm working this weekend.  Luckily I hadn't boked it as I knew far enough in advance.

There are approx. 20 Reading Roadrunners & Reading Joggers heading out as it's one of mates 35th birthday this weekend.

Windsor Half Marathon 2014

The 1pm start is the primary reason I wouldn't do this event again, even though it's fairly local for me.

I prefer running earlier in the day.

Half marathon recommendations February or March 2015?

Andyp what was Bacchus like

Hi Yvonne - if you ran it as a straight race, I would put it in the very difficult category.  It's mainly off-road, through woods, with some tough uphill stretches.
The fact that there are 7 drink stations (14 on the marathon) with wine, food, etc, and everyone stops to chat and drink at each one, breaks the running up nicely.

Add to that the large majority of runners are in fancy dress creates a carnival atmosphere.  I've done it twice now and love it.

Good luck with your imminent delivery - hope all goes well

I'm surprised how quickly he got though the ticket barriers too....

He could have walked it this morning and beaten the trains very comfortably!

Hi All

After a quiet summer running-wise I'm happy to have now done 2 more half-marathons.  Severn Bridge & Baccus.  Baccus was a HM PW for me of 3:03 due to too many wine stops......

I need to increase the mileage now ready for the pre-xmas bash at the Portsmouth Coastal.

I like your thinking BF

I'd suggest the Malta Half Marathon on that basis too!  Mid feb, warm temperatures, and the first half is all down hill on a point-to-point course.
