If you are thinking about taking part in a marathon in the near future but want to think ‘outside the box’ then why not consider applying to do a marathon abroad.
When someone says ‘marathon’ you would automatically think of the London Marathon but this doesn’t have to be the case. There are a variety of marathons to choose from not just in the UK but abroad too with amazing scenery!
Paris Marathon 2018
The Paris Marathon is an unmissable event whether you are a running newbie or a total tarmac addict! The Semi-Marathon is 13.1 miles long and takes place in the city of love with over 40,000 people registering every year! The event is on the 15th April 2018 so why not plan a short break away around the Marathon to make the most of the trip?
Barcelona Marathon 2018
The flat surface of the Barcelona Marathon is ideal for a perfect running event. With a favourable climate and a route that passes through the main landmarks of the city, what is there to not like about the race? With the marathon not being until the 11th March next year you have plenty of time to get training!
Amsterdam Marathon 2017
The TCS Amsterdam Marathon is known for its fast and beautiful course. The start and finish take place in the historical Olympic Stadium on October 15th, 2017. Every year this leaves an unforgettable impression, not least because of the presence of the supporters in the tribunes and the marathon grandstand.
New York Marathon
The 26.2 mile course goes through the world’s most diverse city before crossing the finish line in Central Park which is said to be a thrill of a lifetime!
If the New York Marathon appeals to you then you could apply in their Ballot to get a place for us like one of our runners Jamie Rankin did in 2015.
If you don’t want to travel abroad then we have lots of Marathons in Britain that you can apply for to including the Brighton Marathon, South Downs Trail Marathon, Bournemouth Marathon, Chester Marathon and of course the London Marathon.
