I am so tempted - vowed never to run another marathon and I hate hills but I’m still tempted! Have you done it?

Yes! 1st time snd 1st marathon last week. Im still on a high. And definitely doing it again.

When is it held? Running London end of April but if this is a few months later I might be tempted. I'm guessing it's horrifically hilly?

I could only find a race report in Welsh:

And it's tough enough that researchers were using this year's runners as human lab rats to observe interplay between marathon stress and immunity:

Dh really enjoys the Snowdonia Marathon. He is in far better shape afterwards than after a flat marathon, and does it in only 15mins longer.

That last descent into Llanberis is painful to watch.

I’ve decided I’m going to sign up! I run hills a minimum of once a week so I shouldn’t be so scared!

I was talking to a volunteer yesterday and she was shocked to see spmany walking/singing/on mobiles and generally having a great time!!!
