I have signed up for the next Edinburgh Marathon taking place in May. Are there any other Raith fans who have entered or are toying with the idea of entering? I was thinking about sponsorship and running to raise a few quid for Raith Rovers which would help them through the difficult close season.
I've run this race a few times and it is a pretty forgiving course especially for those who haven't run a full marathon before.
If anyone is interested in joining me with this venture then please get in touch.
It's only 26.2 miles. It's a dawdle!!

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Not a cat in hell's chance of me running the marathon, but more than happy to sponsor you and even more happy to cheer you on from thee warmth of one of the pubs which you run past.

I have a list of things that may go wrong, including the possibility of death. However, training is on going, and a decision will be made early next year Confused

Well just a couple of weeks left before the marathon. I have found the training pretty difficult this year but I am still looking for a sub four hour run. A lot will depend on the conditions on the day.
I had initially intimated that I would run for the Rovers but this year I will be running for Maggie's Centres which is a very worthwhile cause.
Should you wish to sponsor me I have set up a just giving page which you can find at www.justgiving.com/andrew-mill
Please pledge whatever you can and distribute the link to your contacts if you think they may help also.
Thank you.

Well I managed to finish the Edinburgh marathon last Sunday in a time of 4hrs 13mins. I'm a little disappointed I didn't get a sub 4 hour time but it was pretty warm that day which may have been a factor.

Not collected all the money yet but it's looking around a total of 700 for the Maggie's Centres. The JustGiving page will be active for a while should anyone wish to donated. www.justgiving.com/andrew-mill

A couple of days rest before I get the running shoes back on again!!
