    Le Touquet - ?(mid April)

    Well as the magazines are arriving and my cheque has still not been cashed I can safely assume I'm not in. So its time to choose that alternative. I'm narrowing mine down by date - earliest April 4th to allow for as much training as possible. Latest April 25th as I don't want to be training for weeks after all the FLM'ers have finished.

  • Saint Anthony's (Padua) marathon sounds good.

    Thanks for the list of Marathons very helpful. Have just applied online(and been accepted straight away) for Rotterdam.

    Im all excited now.
  • I've plumped for Rotterdam as well Steve.

    See you there! :-)
  • Stockholm is meant to be very good for PB's, I think that is where I will plunp for if (or when) I finally get my rejection

    any takers?
  • benja - I think there were a few others planning to do stockholm. I have paid my entry fee and so come what may I plan to be there. I started a premature thread under events a month or so ago, if you wade through the recent stuff you might be able to find it.
  • Palma de Majorca has been changed to 24th October this year. I'm doing Madrid.
  • I'm definitely aiming for April 25th, which gives me a choice of Stratford, Lochaber, Madrid, Padua and Wroclaw (Poland). I quite like not knowing where I'll end up...

  • My aim is to run Madrid marathon. I started running again one and a half year ago and I have taken part in only four half marathons. I´d like to be able to end a marathon next year and I decided to do Madrid because the atmosphere is quite good and as there are a lot of participants you can run with more people who are doing it at the same pace.

    Well, I hope we can meet in Madrid next year, Riazor blue. By the way, are you a Deportivo de la Coruña supporter?

    If you come to Madrid, Andy, it would be wonderful or if you come to Almería half on 25th January it would be great, too.

  • after weeks of nail biting tension my horrible little (broken) watch has arrived

    good, glad im not in, never wanted to be anyway....
  • Yup Antonio I'm a Deportivo fan, Living in La Coruña. Done Madrid last year, my first marathon after being rejected for London twice. The course is good, passing all the important bits in Madrid, a good atmosphere for most of the course, although rather quiet in the university area and casa del campo. Passes Real and Athletico stadiums aswell. The last 6km are all a bit uphill with a nasty hill at around 5 to go. Other than that all well organized, good runners fair on Friday & Saturday, and Madrid's cheap & easy to get to from the UK these days.
  • Thanks, Riazor Blue, for the infiormation. I´m looking forward to ending my first marathon. I managed to finish Madrid marathon twice but long time ago, fifteen years ago. I liked the atmosphere very much. I´ve heard the course was changed lately but the distance is the same. I remember listening to the music of "Chariots of Fire" when we were crossing Puerta del Sol and it gave you wings. Now I intend to do it again although I don´t mind if I do it in more than five hours. I want to experience that great feeling again.

    Do you intend to take part in any half marathons before the marathon? I want to run Almería half on 25th January and one or two more before the marathon, which I haven´t decided yet. Well, R.B., good luck!

    Greetings from Almería.
