New Forest is looking like the front runner at the moment. It's a bit nearer to me (SE London) than either Nottingham, Hull or Mablethorpe and probably easier to convince supporters to come along to.

To chuck my 2p worth in, I now live in Hull and am doing the marathon here. I can confirm it is flat, very flat, except for the Humber bridge section and a 'hill' on the south bank of the Humber. I used to live in Croydon, sarf London and know it is a tad far for supporters to come that said you can get return tickets for £25 and it’s a cheap night out up here.

Here’s an elevation map of hull marathon if it helps, and works

I like this event and the Race HQ change is interesting. Although I have not run the New Forest Marathon since 2011, the entry fee (£43) is about twice as much as I remember paying for it.

I ran this in 1993 and got my marathon PB. That was when it started from New Milton. This year, for the first time, it starts at the same venue as the New Forest 10 mile. It is classified as multi terrain, so I imagine it will be a mixture of trails and roads, similar to the NF 10. I think they will be charging £2 for parking, so don't forget to bring some cash!

Got something to say?
