I'm after several marathons again next year. I've entered one costing more than fifty quid. Consequently, I'm not too keen on paying through the nose for any others, especially as I need to cover transport/accommodation.

This year, I made the savings by entering the Tour of Northumbria, which gave me, effectively, four marathons for less than I'd normally pay for two. I'd do it again, but I fancy travelling/ticking off more counties/seeing more of this fine nation.

Are there any other marathons that can be recommended which will cost me less than, say, 25 quid? I know about the LDWA events, and will look at a couple of those, but I'm after some runners' events as well. Especially if I can get a train to within a taxi ride from the start.

Already I have races booked in Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Cumbria and possibly Kent for next year.

Not looked into it much but if you subscribe to Madeyarun you get discounted entries to various marathons - generally of the type hosted by 100 Marathon Club members. madeyarun.com Race entry fees get reduced to £5 and the subscription is £19 for the year.

A five quit marathon? Wow!

This is fifteen quid - a bargain and a good cause :-)

This one cost £23, so not cheap as such (just below your limit- and you'd have to get to Scotland), but it was a fab race and fantastically organised: strathearnharriers.org.uk

I've read the Madeyarun bumph - entered the Tour of Northumberland and Enigma Winter and Quadzilla through there, so I get e-mails from Dave Major about it. Is anyone a member? Am I likely to save the cost of my membership?

Strathearn's on the radar, though I've not looked into the whole travel situation...

You have radar? I would dedicate that before any marathon to ensure a PB
