Having entered GNR and GSR (2011) and Bath Half and Milton Keynes Marathon (first marathon) this year, I sustained an injury and had to pull out of all four events.
These four events cost me nearly £150!
Now I'm recovered from the injury and have started training again after a 9 month break. Have done a few 10ks without any problems, so I want to fulfil my dream of doing that marathon.
To give sufficient time for training, I'm looking to Spring next year, but I'm concerned about paying so far in advance again (as I did with Milton Keynes) and then something going wrong and losing yet more money.
Are there any sizeable marathon events (suitable for a first marathon) where you can enter on the day, or where the entries tend to stay open up to a couple of weeks before?
I was really disappointed to have to pull out of Milton Keynes (which is next weekend), as it seemed a nice route for a first marathon.
