want a marathon

hey guys,
i am wanting to do a marathon in august or september next year but am finding it hard to find any races advertised on the net. i dont belong to an affiliated club as i am an raf runner, so i cant use that route. can anyone help me find a suitable race for august or sept 2003


  • September is the Robin Hood Marathon in Nottingham.
  • I can also recommend the Robin Hood, I think next years race is on 14th Sept
  • whats ort of course is it? i did loch ness last september and it was a bitch of a course
  • Very runner friendly, first few miles through the town centre with a couple of short inclines, reasonably flat until 9 miles then another longer incline.
    Second half of race follows the River Trent and round Holme Pierepoint (National Watersports Centre) this is all fairly flat finally returning to the start/ finsh area on Victoria Embankment.
    I did my first half marathon here and found it easier than expected
  • Cardiff in september, not sure if id recommend
  • New Forest marathon is September I think. Haven't done it but I've heard it's a good one.

    Yup , New Forest normally mid Sep.
    Not done it before but they do a full marathon and a halfM , and I've only heard good things about it.

    Depending on my Autumn schedule ( at this early stage I'm aiming to run Chicago) I'll probably do the halfM - missed it this year due to Windsor.
    If I don't run in Chicago , I may well do the full marathon .....
