Hi, has anyone done the Windermere marathon before? I've seen it described in one magazine as 'undulating' and in another as 'brutal' - will consider it if the former but steer clear if the latter!
I'd be really keen to know too......anyone have any advice?
Hi, I have subsequently found some reviews on here which suggest that although a good race it is pretty hilly, so I'm thinking I will give it a miss
It's not brutal! But I guess it depends what you're used to....Bit hilly, but nothing too terrible.
Did it last year & entered again for this year. Really nice race. Scenic & friendly.
It is not brutal and as it goes round the lake and not into the fells it would probably surprise you how 'flat' it is in places. Yes there are a few climbs but nothing too bad.
Now Coniston marathon which goes off road and into the hills is brutal but surprisingly good fun
