European Marathon - Berlin or Budapest

Posted: 27/09/2014 at 23:30

As far as I know it is the first time they've changed the date. While the circumstances were out of their control, they must have known about the the clash for a while before deciding on the change of date. National elections are planned more than six weeks ahead.

Firenze (Florence) Marathon 2014

I don't really see how they would be able to/would want to check with everyone's GP. In my experience, it is fine to sign it yourself, but an EA membership might give you more peace of mind.

Or they may accept an England Athletics card, which is cheaper (£10 at the moment I think).

In what way is it London's most exclusive half marathon?!


European Marathon - Berlin or Budapest

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 14:03

I would be a bit cautious about the Budapest Marathon. This year it was meant to take place on Sunday October 12. On August 29, they announced, last-minute, that it was being changed to Saturday October 11 because of elections. I have never heard of race organisers doing this before. It meant anyone who had planned to arrive on the Saturday had to either change plans and book new flights/accommodation or pull out. And those who'd arranged to arrive on Friday and then to have a day chilling out before the race won't be able to do that either. Plus they've now changed the start time to 11am instead of 9am which not everyone is happy with. I'm just glad I'm not doing it!

Ignore that - as I soon as I submitted this they popped up as if by magic!

It was great, thanks. I received an email from you saying the results are up but when I click on the link I only get the 2013 results, even after refreshing the browser. Can you help? 


Bakers Cyst

Posted: 08/08/2014 at 22:18

Sandi, I don't know if I can be of much help, but as there are no other replies I thought I might as well answer your question! I had a Baker's Cyst which was a bit uncomfortable but didn't prevent me from running. I went for a scan (not an MRI) privately at my physio's suggestion after he diagnosed it, When I got there, I was told that the cyst had already ruptured, so no further treatment was needed. I do wonder if running on it actually helped rupture it... Yours case sounds worse than mine though. Let me know how you get on.

Unregistered running events

The Royal Parks Half Marathon is one of those which isn't registered - or it wasn't when I did it last year. It seems odd for such a major event but it's always over-subscribed and I suppose a lot of the entrants aren't too bothered. I only found out because I ran a PB and it would have been nice to have it included in the rankings.

I saw a consultant the other day about an arthroscopy and he told me it would take six to eight weeks to return to running or cycling. He said it would more likely be eight for the average person, six for elites who have more facilities to help them recover.
