OK - Well I am a beginner but have made good progress in training for a 2013 mararthon with realistic targets. Now as the entries for the 2013 are coming up I wanted to know peoples opinions on London vs Brighton ?? I am fully aware of the liklihood of getting into London via ballot is slim but do have a local charity that would be able to provide a place and I would be prepared to fundraise. However have had a few mates do the Brighton marathon who have really enjoyed it. As a first timer I am not too concerned with congestion and getting a PB ! ! Thoughts and advice or any other 2013 marathon suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
