Marathons

The rules
In order to meet the criteria I made up myself, each race must:
  • Be a minimum of marathon distance (26.2 miles)
  • Provide a medal
  • At least part of the route must cross through the specified county (if it crosses through more than one, I can choose which county it counts as)

  1. Alicey, what happens if there are no marathons in some of the counties?

  2. Good question! I did look at the ones I thought might not have a marathon (Isle of Wight, Rutland, Bristol) and have managed to find suitable ones in all of them. As I can use ultras as well, that makes it a bit easier. Worst case scenario, I'd have to use one where you plot your own route (Convergence or Escape from Meriden) and keep going til I reached the missing county!
