I'd say they're all possibilities Becca, as they're all big cities without big marathons, and Great Run already have races in two of the four locations.

As my original post, I'd add Newcastle, Bristol, Manchester and Cardiff as other possibilities In all of which, except Cardiff, Great Run have existing races, and therefore have existing agreements in place with the local councils etc.

It looks like the second of the three Great Run British Marathon Series races will be announced today, and it will be the one in "the north of the country" ... the Stirling Scottish Marathon, 21 May 2017 grc.stg13.com

IMO Great Run appear to have been a little naughty in the scheduling of this race; by putting Great Manchester Run back a week they've arranged the new marathon the week before the likely Edinburgh Marathon date (just 30miles away!).

Got something to say?
