One of my lunchtime runs from work. This route is used as a regular 'race' amongst us runners at work. It is called three hills as, well, there are three hills.
Arran holiday blackwaterfoot-Corriecravie 7.71 miles
6.01 mi. Added by Wobblebottom (8/23/2008)
The road of a thousand ups! If ever your visiting Arran, this superb run may seem a bit boring going there and back along the same route, but believe me, the sea views are worth the pain! I cut it short but you can turn it into a 7.71 mile by going to Corriecravie.

18,000 runners took part in this race in Portsmouth, I may have gone slightly wrong around the dockyard but the distance markers seemed to have ended up in the right places!
Laguna Phuket Marathon 2012
42.2 km. Added by Simon Grounds (7/2/2012)
A great destination Marathon, in Phuket, Thailand. A scenic semi-out and back course, mainly on quiet rural roads through lush vegetation. Starts/finishes at Laguna beach hotel, turnaround point at a nice quiet beach. Some support from the locals, but generally a quiet route. Also a half marathon and 10km run, which would not be as scenic.

13.1 mi. Added by Neil Gunn (7/19/2008)
A tough 1/2M in Staffordshire ... not PB territory due to 1400' of ascent but great views and atmosphere. Usually held August public holiday weekend.
