I've entered this, will be my first marathon. image

26 laps of a 1 mile course might turn out to be a little dull, but it's flat and local so I'm in.

Hoping the weather is good but not too hot.


  • Hi there. This will (hopefully) be my second marathon. I have only just recovered from my first (29 April 2012 Milton Keynes). Struggling a bit now to get a 20 mile long run in before it's way too late. I will make one last attempt tomorrow.

    The 26 lap format will be good for supporters. Also, after lap one there should not be any surprises image

    26 laps  to boring for meimage      done Chester  and that is 1 lap to Wales and back

  • I was going to do the Milton Keynes marathon, but a sore ankle and the weather meant I missed it.

    Did a 20 mile run on Saturday. Tripped on a rock, got a few bruises and dropped my jelly babies but other than that it went well. Planning on just doing a few short, fairly easy runs between now and the 17th.

  • I used to live in Bournemouth so would love to run a marathon down there! I ran Manchester on 29 th April, horrendous weather! But a 26 lap course? Come on Bournemouth you can do better than that! Do Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch and I'm in ! :0) x
  • To each their own. This is a small event and obviously MUCH easier to organise in a park than on the open road, especially in these "Health and Safety"-obsessed times.
