Post Race Report :: Garry Curley – Great Barrow Challenge Marathon


Not content with running 5 marathons in March, I had the chance to tag along with some friends and add a 6th marathon to my schedule, so of course I said yes and made this another weekend of 2 marathons:

Saturday – Great Barrow Challenge Marathon

For my birthday this year I wanted to run a marathon and found a great little marathon in Cambridgeshire. A beautiful road marathon with a small field of around 50 runners. A great event that seemed downhill all the way, one to head back to for sure.

Monday – Enigma Reverse Marathon.

My bonus marathon was back to Milton Keynes (where I had raced 2 weeks earlier) for another 7.5 laps of Caldecotte IMG_2981lake. Thankfully the worst of the weather seemed to stay in Kent and aside from it being a little windy, a bright sunny day awaited. A nice steady marathon with great support and a good field. 

That is it for March. It has been fun.
