I love witty titles, imagine my delight when I came across the name of this marathon! The Light at the end of the <del>Tunnel</del> Marathon is set for the 25th of July, 2010 at North Bend Washington. It’s a shame because registration is already closed (they’re looking for volunteers, though), but hey! There’s always next year, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel! 😛
Race starts at 7 to 8 in the morning, just because you can’t participate in the race doesn’t mean you can’t watch!
Londoners! Don’t feel left out with all the marathon news about the US, you’ll see that running is certainly getting more and more attention not only from the enthusiasts but also from the normal folks who are trying to lose weight and improve their physical fitness.
The Fairlands Valley Challenge Marathon is organised by the Fairlands Valley Spartans Running Club in Stevenage. There are two races – one for walkers and one for runners.
About the route:
The Fairlands Valley Challenge marathon is a trail marathon. This means that it takes in footpaths, tracks and bridleways as well as roads.
This is a challenging race with many hill along the way. Runners are provided with written instructions to keep them from getting lost. These are very much needed, as some participants get lost and end up running more than the required distance.

It seems like the entire country has the marathon fever! Last one was in Hawaii and now in Colorado, the Leadville Trail Marathon that is happening from June 26 to September 5.
This means that your summer can be joyfully spent with like-minded individuals and be fit in the process! You see, summer’s not all about the beach. 🙂
