Experian Robin Hood Marathon. Will Inman ran the Nottingham marathon for Coming Home. Its not too late to sponsor him at his fundraising page
The Robin Hood Marathon includes probably the most scenic city centre run in the UK; fast road sections are mixed with deer parks and the university campus to produce a unique road race. Starting and finishing alongside the river Trent at Victoria Embankment, the runners go through many of Nottingham’s historical and well known landmarks including Robin Hood himself just outside Nottingham Castle, Wollaton Deer Park and Wollaton Hall. The course then goes along the promenade path by the Trent and under Trent Bridge before passing over Lady Bay Bridge, leaving the city and into Nottinghamshire. The route then takes in the National Water Sports Centre and Holme Pierrepont Hall before returning along the Trent cycle path to County Hall and passes over the old toll bridge and onto the tree lined Victoria Embankment to the finish.
