I dunno hw to go abot this but I wanna do a marathon type thing, some to aim for, and feel like I've achived something once I'm done with it.

I dunno anything about how to organise this kinda thing eaither but I'll do it for Brad's if I can ge people to sponser me.

But I don't wanna do it alone, anyone else up for this?

Well having done a little reaserch, turns out there are loads of these runs.

So far, this one looks the best.

The Bupa London 10,000 starts and finishes in St. James's Park and uses Green Park as its assembly area.

The race starts on Birdcage Walk and follows an anti-clockwise route around the City of Westminster and the City of London via Parliament Square, Embankment, Blackfriars Bridge, Queen Victoria Street, Cannon Street, Great Tower Street, Crutched Friars, Fenchurch Street, Leadenhall Market, Cornhill, Queen Victoria Street, Puddle Dock, Embankment, Horseguards Avenue, Whitehall and via Trafalgar Square to the Finish in The Mall.

Runners pass many of London's famous sights, including Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, The London Eye, Cleopatra's Needle, Tate Gallery, Millennium Bridge, The Monument, Lloyds of London, Leadenhall Market, Bank of England, Mansion House, St. Paul's Cathedral, Horseguards, Nelson's Column and Admiralty Arch. Buckingham Palace acts as the backdrop to the start and finish.

Dave Bedford from London Marathon Ltd said: "We are pleased to be working with Nova to produce this exciting new road race, which will be a great addition to both the London Marathon and Great Run stable of events held in and outside London. The mass field will boast an array of elite, club and charity runners, and we fully intend for this race to become a landmark on the annual running events calendar in the UK."

Brendan Foster from Nova International Ltd added: "We are excited to be working with London Marathon Ltd to stage this new event in the heart of London. Much of the course takes in the proposed route for the 2012 Olympic Marathons so you could hardly get a more inspirational location for the Bupa London 10,000. We are certain that the strengths of both organisations will combine to deliver what we are both best at doing; staging world class road running events."
25th of may

does that clash with any shows?

great north run is 13.1 miles. My friend has just done it this year, if your going to enter you need to be on the ball with the application dates etc to ensure you get a place.

I'll not do it with you but I'll cheer you on and take you out round the toon afterwards.

I think the great north run you can pick yuor own charity (I am willing to be corrected) also as it is in mid October it deffo doesn't catch with any shows and it's isn't as warm as May so will be better conditions. You deffo need to train and not just at the gym as running on the street/road is a lot different.

I'm hoping to do the Edinburgh moon walk next year, which is either half or full marathon power walk.
