ooh recommend Brathay Windermere Marathon Middle of May 

It has a great atmosphere especially as you watch the 10 in 10'ers go off ( they do 10 marathons in 10 days ) it is very emotional and well worth seeing

it has the most fantastic scenery and it well supported 

The lakes are just fantastic it was the first marathon that made me have goosebumps when I ran 

I am signed up again for it ( will be my third year )

London Marathon 2015

Posted: 30/09/2014 at 12:24

ballot places are now being received so hopefully you may get quite a few people wanting your charity place

I would advice a min of £1500 and no more than £2000 ( I work within the charity field ) as it's hard work for runners raising the cash and some charities ask ridiculous amounts of money as they then seem to spend it on hospitality suites 

as long as you recover what you have to pay for it and then some on top of that, hopefully it will bring some nice fundraising money into your charity

Great British Relay World Record Attempt

well the " dropping of the baton" has been discussed too on other running forums and yes think that the same conclusion was reached there too

The whole idea of this was a great idea, its just a shame that openess and honesty went out the window

We all know people make money from races ( apart from the odd race where all the money goes to charity, like the Liverbird Marathon where the RD gives every penny to charity which  can be seen from a charity page ) 

but if runners get good value for money and don't feel that they are having the wool pulled over their eyes by questions not been answered and posts been deleted then they have more respect for the Race Organisers

Does Paul answer questions on Facebook or Twitter ?

No he doesn't , In fact its pretty much the same as it was here

I had deliberately tried to stay out of this debate 

I took part in the GB Relay and paid my £30 I signed up when it was going to be attempted in 2013 and then it got put forward to 2014 

I completely enjoyed it at the time, got a thrill out of running my stage, met lots of new people and made some new friends out of it, I then took part in another stage ( that was free ) which was run by a few folks ( members of running clubs ) again had a thrill 

BUT  and a big BUT 

on the GB relay forum when questions about money or had another opinion the they got deleted

a post that said maybe it would be better if we concentrated on this year and see whether we break the record first before launching the same event in 2015, got deleted

A post saying that they thought the route was going to be different next year, got deleted

when questions about what do we get this year for our  money as its the same price as last year and this year there is no t.shirt   It was deleted 

I'm sure that runners query the price of a run ( or is it just me ) it is not a crime to question whether the run is good value for money before entering

surely as a runner you look to see what you are getting, medal, t.shirt, goody bag how much cost is involved as to getting to it What you get out of it 

Or am I wrong

well  it appears that mr Raining Hands or now Confused as he has called himself or Mr Paul Shack who I have met personally!! has decided to be unfair and delete anyone off his group that wants to ask questions 

I think he thinks that by deleting the questions they will go away 

Well I'm afraid they wont and by deleting people off the group will only seek to wind genuine runners up and leave them disappointed 

Great Barrow Challenge

I'd definitely stay on site, there is a lounge to sit in at night and a bar and its nice to catch up with people

I made quite a few friends there last year who I now meet up with at races plus its nice to just relax after rather than keep driving on and off

Seriously someone would expect pre-race water!!!!

To be honest I don't expect water on a 10k race but for £50 I would expect a mid race blow job!

I just spit my tea all over my keyboard lol
