It appears that the UK (& Lincolnshire in particular) is getting its very own Boston Marathon - www.bostonmarathon.co.uk 17th April 2016 with entries opening on 1st December through the website.
It will be flat (doesn't matter where the route goes, it WILL be flat) but it is also likely to be rather windy.

Other than that, I know nothing!

Oh boo! I really won't be able to swing that one. Even if it is only an hour and a half from me, it's an hour and a half away from a hospital I need to be near.

They do appear to be very much at the concept phase of things. From little acorns...

If they post some details up about cut-offs etc I could be tempted, but as a long rying to race so I'd want up to 6hrs or so ( being optimistic re winter training etc!)

rying to race = run rather than race!

wtf?

I'm another one already entered in the Manchester marathon, but perhaps 2017.
I agree with Ted and RH, there are very few details at the moment, really just the route. Even the date hasn't been fixed definitely.

I've always fancied trying to make a marathon out of this:
