I've done both..lochaber 2012 and Edinburgh this year. Lochaber was my first ever marathon so got a soft spot for that one! 

To compare them: lochaber has a much smaller field and is nice and maybe more personal.

Edinburgh has bigger support on the course.. in lochaber you will see a few people in every lay-by but they were very encouraging!

 

 

 

In lochaber at the end there is a nice spread with tea/coffee and filled rolls.  And if you have driven there in the morning you only have about 100m to walk to start your journey home... at Edinburgh you have a mile or 2 walk back to the park and ride buses which then take ages to get going and then ages to get back to where your car is!

If there is any x-factor style singing or dancing... I'm definitely 100% out...lol 

If it is only running I guess I have a better chance...50/50.

Very true Booktrunk....I have only done 5 marathons but been fairly happy with each performance...but would like to get professional advice (rather than my own head-in-the-cloud ideas) to maybe get closer to the elusive sub-3 hour target!!!

We all have our own aspirations and dreams but i'm sure any advice from the Asics team would benefit everyone.

I'm in as well.....i'm sure there wont be too many entries

If I get in then I will have Paris, London and the Edinburgh in 2 glorious months next year. Some people might think that sounds like madness....but to me it conjures up great dreams of HAPPINESS

Good Luck to everyone that enters!
