Frankfurt on the 28th October. Hotels are cheap, the course if flat and you finish indoors on a red carpet with cheerleaders, dry ice and strobe lights
I did Dublin 2011 and would definately rate it. Run on a Bank Holiday Monday, great organisation, fantastic support even when the heavens opened up during the race. There was an ASICS technical shirt last year in the goody bag which is still serving me well. A couple of slight inclines and one short but testing climb around the 20 mile mark but nothing too serious. If like last year there will be pacers supplied too. I would definately run Dublin again but have opted for the flater Amsterdam this year. The years are catching me up and am still seeking that sub 3.30 marathon which has eluded me thus far. Have to say glad I booked it as I have since seen the the Palma Del Mallorca on the same day as Amsterdam and despite it being cheaper overall than going to Amsterdam it would also have drawn me as I have run there a few times and have really enjoyed it.
Another vote for Dublin!
Did it as my first in 2010 & just about to sign up for this year. Have an inkling that it's at the start of school half term (Oct 29th).
Has a Dublin Marathon 2012 forum thread been started yet? - can't seem to find a link
I want to do the Venice marathon in Oct - I know very little about the race but I want to visit Venice!
More likely though I will run the Leicester marathon. I've done it twice and would highly recommend it.
For anyone looking for a marathon in Europe, I would recommend my own website http://www.runningineurope.com where I have collected loads of European running events.
Eindhoven is very flat and fast and Ryanair does flights from Stansted at sensible times so you don't have to take any days off. Is a whole "day of running" so there are races from just a few kms through a HM in the afternoon to the full marathon (& marathon relay) in the morning.
That Geoffrey Mutai nearly lapped me there in 2009
Cat 137 - you are clearly difficult to impress. There were plenty of positive things about Liverpool. Finishing on a World Heritage Site for one!! If I find a flat to downhill event with plenty of things to keep you entertained along the way I'll let you know.
