    My advise is DO IT!! 

    This is my favourite marathon, iv done it twice 🙂

    Think they use the ballot system now as it fills up super quick but i could be wrong as haven’t entered it the last couple of years, but defo worth entering.

    The only other advice is run hills, hills and more hills as its a tad hilly lol – down hill training too as you will see why near the end

    Go for it Barry! I’ve walked it several times and it can be tough, but I think with the correct training it could be a great experience Slight Smile

    You have got to do it Barry! A ballot system has been introduced this year as it was so popular. I was unsuccessful in the first ballot, but drew a place in the second ballot (end of Jan). Not sure whether to do it, as shifted my focus to another one, though I am very tempted as it is a brilliant event.

    Ditto Vicky, it’s a tad hilly, but the last big hill most walk. I actually overtook someone trying to run up it. Fab atmosphere too and the scenery is stunning.
