Sunday 26th May 2013
A few Abbeys have entered the Edinburgh Marathon, and being sociable types we’d like more of you to join us.
Edinburgh is one of the flattest marathons around (in fact, it’s a net downhill course) and was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World in 2008. So even if you are a serial marathon runner, this is a crucial PB opportunity. There is also a half marathon on the same day so even if you think a marathon is not for you but you fancy a weekend in Edinburgh then come along!
The weekend falls over a Bank Holiday so we were thinking of travelling up on the Saturday and staying at least a couple of nights, so we can celebrate on the Sunday night and enjoy the city!
Entries are now open and you can enter at http://www.edinburgh-marathon.com/. If you are entering, let Jim know because around February time we’ll start a marathon training programme.
