Comments: A very cold, but sunny start to Day Two of the Enigma Running Fireworks double marathon weekend (I chose the right day, Day One chucked it down!) saw 57 runners line at at the side of Caldecotte Lake near Milton Keynes for 7.25 laps. I soon fell in with a pack of runners all aiming for 4 hours, or thereabouts - hoping that I might just squeeze in under for the 2nd time in 3 weeks. By about halfway - I'd managed to break clear of the group, only to have a couple of the stronger finishers pass me with 2 miles to go, but at least they spurred me on to finish close behind them - just 19 seconds slower than my previous best at the Yorkshire Marathon. Enigma Running organise several multiple marathons throughout the year (doubles, a treble, a quadruple and this year a 7in7 days event). Fairly low key with only 25-70 runners in each race and always a good medal to add to the collection. Less than an hour's drive from Oxford these races are very popular with people chasing down their membership of the 100 marathon club. Being multiple laps, they're perhaps not to everyone's taste, but pretty good all the same. See http://www.enigmarunning.co.uk/ for more details.
