New Forest Marathon

Brockenhurst, Hampshire
5km, 10km, half-marathon, Marathon
This event that has been a cornerstone of the running calendar for the last 34 years, and 2018 will once again see a great line-up of events, with full and half marathons, 10k, 5k, junior 1k and 200m and a Woodland Walk. 7 races, 1 setting, 1 stunning day. All routes will start and finish from New Park Showground, Brockenhurst and wind through the heart of the New Forest National Park. The multi-terrain courses offer some of the most scenic running experiences in the Country, with a blend of forest enclosures, open roads, far reaching views and of course, the famous New Forest ponies!

In short:
First marathon in over a year where I've not gone into it harbouring an injury.

In full:
Definitely not a fast road race: surprisingly bumpy on mostly gravel paths, but with some lovely views. Game plan fell to bits a bit at the half way mark after drinking too much water, and the aid stations not having any food/snacks - I've been spoiled by previous races clearly.
