Anyone doing the St Magnus Marathon?

I ran the St Magnus Marathon last year, having just moved to Orkney. It is a point to point race, starting from Kirkwall's St Magnus Cathedral, and finishes at the Birsay Community Hall. The marathon was everything I expected, fantastic scenery, great atmosphere.

This year they are having a 10k on the same day, which will be good for those who don't fancy the distance of a marathon.

I enjoyed the marathon so much I will be doing this again this year.
