Marathon training from winter into spring
What also speaks in favor of participating in a marathon in May is the wide selection of running events. After all, much like April, there are plenty of running events in May. The advantage for a slightly later participation in May is that the entire marathon training does not have to be completed in the cold and often not motivating season. For example, if you run a marathon in early April, you will begin specific marathon preparation no later than early January. On the other hand, if you are planning a marathon for mid-May, the start for specific marathon training is mid-February. Accordingly, a large part of the preparation can be done in the spring.
