When you're putting your body through the ultimate test of fitness and tenacity, you deserve a seriously fantastic setting to do it in. So if you've been training all season and are ready to point yourself down a marathon track, don't just stick to your local streets: race in one of the world's most famous marathons and make the experience even more iconic. Enter the Niagara Falls International Marathon, across the US-Canada border, to check two biggies off your bucket list in one run. Get in step listening to stars playing live on the touring Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. Or treat yourself to a trot round the luxurious Marathon du Médoc, where between the all-you-can-eat oysters and 20+ wine tastings you'll keep forgetting you're running a race and not just enjoying a gourmet buffet. Yep, they're all still 26.2 miles long - but the miles will go past a lot quicker.
