Blackpool Marathon

36 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
#runningman 🏃 Will be looking for a PB in this one and if I can get under 3.45 then that will be even better.
But more important than any of that is that I will be running this in memory of my mum who died in April 2008.
It will be an emotional journey. Unaffiliated 2:36:28 3:41:30 3:45:00 3:41:30 55.57

Generation X Inherited a place from an injured friend, so off for a last minute family weekend by the seaside. Using this as a training run for FLM, but hoping to improve on my PB as the same time. Post race update - Hamstring flared up during early stages of race but (probably foolishly) carried on. Oswestry Olympians 3:51:42 4:01:00 4:10:00 4:30:53 47.75

Lisrun Should be interesting...*Update* Very, very happy to have broken 4hr at last ! Bit warm in later stages and 8m or so on concrete was hard on the feet. Got serious cramp and had to walk but luckily only 50 yards from finish at that point.

rdr Sore quads at 16-17 miles put to bed any ambitions of doing 3:10 on my marathon debut. Hope to be back next year for a pb! Unaffiliated 3:33:30 3:33:30 3:10:00 3:33:30 58.28

Rippers Wo done it; booked, 1st Marathon for 27 years, well I need a new challenge.  17th March - trg coming on well so gonna predict under 4. - Update - pretty pleased - tagging onto Haddi 31 & YP1 for 1st half was spot on pace setting - maybe went a little too fast after turn on 2nd lap & found last 6 tough, but can still walk so fell good!

Rob Runner Really hoping for a sub 3:15 for London qualification but will probably be expecting too much. Any personal best time will be fantastic. Good luck to everyone running this year at Blackpool!!!

XT2runner nice first half of 1.40 then realised i had plenty of time for sub 3.30 and eased off at the end as 3.20 was not my target this time. Wirral AC 3:21:26 3:28:10 3:30:00 3:28:10 62.65
Yorkshire Pie Using this as a training run before FLM so will be taking it easy.  The schedule says 22 miles so may as well finish and get the medal... Unaffiliated 3:44:05 4:13:30 4:13:30 53.42
