Luton 1 Bristol 0

16 Sep

Sadly, the Bristol Marathon has been called off, only a few days after entries opened. It’s not quite clear why, but reading between the lines there wasn’t quite enough time to get the event organised properly in the remaining weeks. It’s a great pity, because I was really looking forward to running a marathon in my home city, especially when it was just going to be a bimble around the sights as a training run, so none of the stress of time-chasing. Hopefully the promised Bristol Marathon 2012 will materialise.


A marathon for Bristol?

3 Sep

Exciting news, gleaned from a race listings email – there may be a marathon in Bristol in November.  The full 26.2!  Great training opportunity for Running Home For Christmas if it (the marathon) goes ahead.  And hopefully it could become a brilliant new addition to the UK race calendar.  I could say I’ll compare and contrast Luton and Bristol, but really?  Luton doesn’t stand a chance!
