How about the Eifel Marathon?  It looks great and a change of scenery to the normal London Marathon

Odd that it's called Eifel Marathon but it's in Germany. Thanks for the adivce though Helen, look good.

Have you any ideas where about in Europe you'd like to go? Would you like a warmer or colder place to do it in?

What distance are you looking to do?

Ooh this sounds good. Thanks Helen and Fielder. Definitely prefer to do it in a hot country so I can dip in the sea afterwards :p xxxx

I think I'd prefer to run somewhere with a cold climate. I find it really difficult to run whether the weather is warm. Somewhere like Finland would be nice!

I'm the same, you can do more to stay warm, whereas there's not a lot you can wear to stay cool

This is true. I love running in England when it's pouring with rain because it makes me feel so refreshed! I could only run in a hot country if there was a nice cool pool or sea to jump into afterwards. I'm not good at handling the weather when it's too hot!

I'd definitely be the same, a dip in the sea isn't much good if you're suffering from heat exhaustion after running in sweltering temperatures Surprised

Same here - it's not like you have the weather to train for warm events in the UK either - so it'd be a massive shock to the system.

I wonder what makes people drop out of races more - the cold or the heat? I'd say the heat

Posted 24.07.12, 5:15pm

I reckon so too - it's easier to warm yourself up with layers, than cool yourself down when your running in the heat.

I reckon the heat. You would probably warm up quite quick even running in cold climates.

I hate these hats! No one can pull it off unless they were born in the 1920s
