    I am looking at booking a marathon for November but can’t decided between either the Wooler Trail Marathon OR the Goathland Trail Marathon?

    Has anyone done either or both? I need a bit of help in deciding 🙂

    Ian did Wooler about 3 years ago – he found it a bit of a toughie (a LOT of pennine type mud and bog and a LOT of elevation gain) but he enjoyed it, I’ve got half an eye of Goathland but it’s a Hardmoors event so will probably sell out pretty quick, and think a similar amount of elevation at nearly 5000 feet, but think there is less open fell and better paths on that one?

    @sharnie1 Iv decided on the Goathland as its close to whitby and kids can go and play there while i do it. Entries open on the 19th at 6pm and i have an alert on my phone for 5.55 lol, even looked at accommodation which im going to book over the weekend. Maybe see you there 🙂
