The marathon I ran is called "Bosmarathon" and is held in the forests around Soest. It is a relatively small and unknown marathon (app. 50 runners for the whole 42 km). I ran it in 4 hr. and 34 min. As I am convinced that aerobic exercise has done a lot for my health I want to share this with as much as possible other Parkinson patients. Although traveling to the UK to run might not become a regular activity for me, I am still interested in contacts with others who have the same experience.
P.S. One of my dreams is to walk coast to coast along the Hadrian's wall. It would be a challenge to do this with a group of Parkinson's patients.
