Abingdon Marathon 2014

Nayan- you were one of the last.  The on-line entries are now full.  There are now only entries for those in the army champs so you will either have to enlist or join the waiting list (use the email form for entries on the contact page of the rcae website)

Pip- its not full yet. But less than 100 places left- we hold some back for the army who have to enter late as they don't know where they will be in the world in October at this time of year.

Brookie- hope you are dry at home.  It can get a bit soggy in the village I think.

Flatboy- 862 places gone as of now!  Last year it was full in 27 days but we had a mix of on-line and postal entries which obviously takes longer to come in.

Brookie- I'm sure the parkrun will be off again this week too- it took days for the carpark to drain last time.  But watch the FB page for info.  You'll have to come and do the proper course by the river when that dries out-much nicer than the road.  The Didcot runners often make the parkrun part of a pre-marathon long run by running from home and back- and i think you are closer, so no excuse

Martin- even worse that the footie pitch is that our Abingdon parkrun course is under several feet of water.  And we can't even use our B route because the carpark (where we also start and finish) is under several feet too:

 And this is Peep o Day lane that the marathon course is on- the pleasant track from Sutton Courtenay back to Abingdon where the lucozade stop is.  Hopefully it will dry out by October!

Great North Run 2014

CC2- I agree, but it is still expensive for a massively sponsored event.  Our marathon is less than that and we have very little sponsorship.  Then there's travel and accomodation...

Pip- if you are out there running, you're doing more than the person sitting on the couch watching the Olympics and if you run a marathon, you are doing more than most runners.

Nice one Lily - even if £50 is somewhat steep...

I've just a phone call from the fraud department of my bank asking what my last transactions were.  they tell me that £50 has been paid to Great Run so I guess I've got a place.  No email yet though
