    Lisbon - Would highly recommend. Done it this year on St Patricks Day.

    Race starts across the 25 de Abril Bridge which is really cool to run across!

    Loop den Haag is a fantastic event, approx 30,000 people taking part between 5k, 10k and Half Marathon, it's fast course as well. 30 min from Amsterdam.

    The Ealing Half Marathon in London. It's been voted the UK's best 3 years in a row. Very well organised and great local support.

    Guys/gals, apologies for bringing up an older thread, but has anyone got some feedback on the Barcelona Half Marathon??

    I have tried looking through boards but fairly old posts regarding it. If anyone has some recent feedback on it that would be great. Thanks!

    Ran it last year and going back this year.

    Great race. Flat, fast and handy number collection.

    Got a bit warm relatively speaking towards the end but definite pb course.

    Only downside would be lack of support around the course but great finish in one of the main squares.

    Highly recommended

    Cheers for that. Booked in myself, herself is very supportive with the running so getting late flight home Sunday so I can fit it in. Really excited for it, first abroad event.
