Shakespeare Marathon

I wanted to run a marathon as part of my fundraising for Help for Heroes so I picked the Shakespeare Marathon as I did not get into the London Marathon. I had heard a lot of good things about the organisation and route.

Jon and I went up early the day before to Stratford-Upon-Avon and had a look around.

On the day of the marathon there were 40 mile winds and 60 mile gusts and it was raining, hard. I was only able to do the half marathon due to the weather. I think if the weather had been nice, this would have been perfect for a first marathon. The track goes around twice and there are 2 big hills but the course was lovely.

It was great despite the weather!

All the Best!
