Like many more I'm sure, I have set myself a target of running next year's London Marathon, starting from nothing.
I have set my first target as the Cranfield 5k in July, but having looked on RW I see there is the 'normal' race and the fun run.
This may seem an obvious/silly question, for which I apologise, but in terms of my using the 5k as a marathon-building-block, what is the difference between the race and fun-run, and would entering one be more beneficial to my training than the other.
Any help/advice appreciated. Thanks.
