After receiving the VLM ELVIS mag I have started looking for alternative spring marathons to try to run sub 3hr but at least GFA for London 2014
White peak is an obvious one - I have something to prove after a disaster from 21miles, should be able to be around 3-3hr 5min and it is cheap at under ??20 but it is trail and NOT FLAT AT ALL.
So looking at flatter marathons. Edinburgh & Manchester ??50 nearly and Windermere not flat. Blackpool is flat and fast but what is other people's experiences? http://www.fyldecoastrunning.org/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=69
Was it well organised? How windy? Yes I know it's the west coast. Looking at previous years results and normally won in 2hr 40ish but is that just the level of athlete or affected by conditions?
