12 Marathons in 12 months
- Posted: 3rd Feb 2013, 16:35Report
Hi, I need some advice and help. I am planning to run 12 marathons in 12 months in 2014 and am looking to put a list together. Any advice on which ones? I have done Brighton and Amsterdam last year, however want to stick to only UK marathons to keep costs down. Any help would be appreciated! Cheers Ben

Manchester if it's going ahead in 2014. Or the MK one. But they both happen in April I think. Think a lot of Marathons happen around the same time March though May and sept through October Another good one for a challenge is the Snowdon Marathon in October. I did this last year and can't rate it enough. There is also a new marathon happening in May 2013 in Shrewsbury, that is a new event so not sure if it will last till 14 Other ones that I can think off are Isle of Wright Langdale (Sept) Edinburgh Manchester Snowdon Blackpool Here is a list of Marathons for this year. Hope it is some help. http://www.marathonrunnersdiary.com/races/uk-marathon-list.php Good luck... I always dread just the one and it takes me a while to get over them. Just two a year maybe three is my limit on doing Marathons.

Thanks for your advice I will look at these. I found the same when looking for marathons this year, I may need to go abroad for a few, however maybe able to do a couple in one month! I would definitely need recovery time though. Thanks again.
