So, you want to run a marathon? Having toyed with the idea for years and improved my fitness during 2015 I decided that 2016 was the right year for me, but which marathon would be best for me? Off road/on road, big city, smaller, flat, hilly? And when? For charity or just for my own sense of satisfaction? Well, into my mixing pot went all of the above and out came the Brathay Windermere Marathon. The UK's most stunning marathon (according to Runners World), it is a hilly course that follows the roads around Lake Windermere. A hill walker before runner, and someone who had the good fortune to grow up with lots of outdoor experiences, this charity does work that I believe can make a huge difference to young people.
