“Have run many under 3:30 but the recent was Newry Marathon, Northern Ireland, on 3rd July. I finished in 3:29:03 on a hilly course on a rainy day and a few miles in the wind. But ended up under 3:30”

Steve B Run a marathon in less than 3:30hrs Challenge

Contributorbronze Steve B Just did the Richmond Park Marathon in an attempt to do the "Marathon in less 3:30hrs". It was far to hilly so I guess I failed in 3:44:50 :( Can I have this one as one of my 7 in 7 days challenge as it was a tough course PLEEEAAASE ?

Thats a brilliant time for such a hilly course - congratulations! I didn't actually know they had a marathon there - have done many a training bike ride round it. Beautiful this time of year too...

Steve R, its the 2nd year of the event. It got voted Best New Race 2011 by Runners World. A small but well organised event.

Ed P Run a marathon in less than 3:30hrs Challenge

Ed P Ran Dublin Marathon in 3:30:40. Frustrating! It was a good race though, and I didn't leave anything in the tank, so still pleased. Will have to come back to this next year...
