Imagine running a marathon through the rolling fields of France where wine is served at every check point and you become less and less concerned about achieving a personal best as you run- or even finishing. Or running along the uneven stone steps of the Great Wall of China, lungs heaving with each switchback ascent.

Whether you are currently training for your first marathon or you’re a seasoned marathon runner, chances are you’re already thinking about your next race. But where will it be?

This is a bucket list is for the keen marathon runner seeking to challenge themselves and experience some of the most beautiful places this planet has to offer.

This little Kindle guide contains a whole variety of races, from road marathons to tough trail marathons. There are iconic marathons- the ones that all runners will recognise- and marathons that are amazing or unique for one reason or another, whether it’s jaw dropping scenery, iconic sights or an unusual twist such as running though the night.

The Marathon Runner’s Bucket List contains race details, cost of entry, what to expect, how tough it is, plus links to the official website and race tour operators if you would rather not go it alone. There is a small resource section in the back of this guide to help you find more races to do- if you have endless time and bottomless funds at your disposal!

Lace up those running shoes and let’s go for it!
