Blackpool is a coastal resort town in the north west of England. It is the most popular resort in the country with approximately ten million visitors annually. Well in April that figure will grow by another few thousand as we and many others descend upon the town to take part in the 2012 marathon. At last this one looks like a traditional marathon with plenty of black stuff beneath our feet from the first to the last of the 26.2 miles.
I’m sure Jamie and I will consider one of the places in the calendar that we may get a PB (we haven’t quite decided what that would be, I’m guessing somewhere under 4 hours!) with an ascent of only 344 feet over the distance. A collective hoorah from Jamie and I … I hope you don’t mind!
