This is the fifth of the 12 marathons Jamie and I (the marathon men!) will be running this year. This is the Marathon of the North which was held on 6th May 2012. It was an similar run to Blackpool, as the route looped around Sunderland, often taking you back down streets you’d previously seen. To be honest this wasn’t a run for the running purist, the views were mixed, although the later stages along the coast and through the parks were a little prettier!! However both Jamie and I were in no mood by then to take the views in.
Next stop the Brathay Windermere Marathon on 20th May!
