Here are some pictures of the inaugural #RunWithIan Guided Trail Marathon, which started out being called 'The Birmingham and Back Marathon' and was later renamed by loyal RunWithIan customers as the "The Not The Venice" Marathon on account of Birmingham having more canal mileage than Venice in Italy.
Chris (see pics. to get a view of his lovely face) and I set out with the goals of running from Birmingham City Centre back to Warwick and ensuring that the first 3-4km was easily navigable and all the planned rights of way we intended to use were open - e.g. Running through The Mailbox.
The photos were taken on the 11 July 2020 and when the weather was a little warmer than it is now!
What are you planning to do in 2021 that maybe a little outside your comfort zone and create memories of a lifetime?
