After the 2012 race was cancelled, a new Spring 2013 date was to be announced according to the race web site. Has anyone heard any more news on this one?

It looks like we're going to have a marathon in 2017!

I'm tempted to give this one a nod over another that I had in mind around that weekend.

A road marathon in March, cheap and not far away? Ticks a lot of boxes for me!

No problem, Fitz. I need to decide whether to drive up on the morning (only 40 miles) or to stay overnight with my in-laws in Benfleet and take the train to Shoeburyness.

If the start/finish is in the same place as the Southend Half, there should be plenty of parking (last did the Half a few years ago). Although the train might be easier for the return journey.

Just realised that there are only five weeks to go. I'm seriously behind with my training having had most of December off due to health and family issues. My longest pre-race run is likely to be around 14-15 miles, so I'm probably going to run the first half/lap and run-walk the second. I hope everyone else is in better shape!

Nope, I'm out of this one. DNFd my last mara on NYE, can't run much more than about 4 miles without pain so I'm not in shape to run a marathon.

Sorry to hear of your DNS, Fitz. I've picked up an annoying cough and cold from my wife and my calves are a tad sore, so no long run this weekend.

I can see my race being a case of just get around or try to break 5 hours at best.

Hope you're fit enough for your next marathon sooner than expected!
