In short: Lovely stuff. In full: A big well done to the race organisers and marshals for putting on a good event. Plenty of water stops plus a thank you to the marshals bearing jelly babies! Minor gripes include running a couple of sections of fairly busy road and water not being obvious to find at the finish line. Overall, a decent race which is ideal as training towards the London Marathon. Date of review: April 1, 2009
In short: friendly, well organised and good prep for FLM In full: Really please with the event. Really well run event and enjoyed the cake and coffee after completing the 21 miles. Perhaps a 9:30am start might be a bit beter, with clocks changing it was a really early start. Date of review: March 30, 2009
In short: Most enjoyable race I've done in ages! In full: I was nervous about this - have never run 21 miles before and wasn't sure how hilly it would be. In the end I had a great time - really nice course, and the hills were not bad at all - specially as they all pretty much had a downhill straight after!
Excellent marshalling, well supported in places - including one family where the kids were banging drums, and of course those jelly babies!
I'd agree with the comments about the section through the carpark - and there were a few cars trying to get through the road at the end which were difficult to get round, but overall I couldn't really fault this. Date of review: March 30, 2009
In short: Great last long run for FLM. There were a lot or club runners but the atmosphere was first class. Well organised with great marshalls and lots of information. Would definately do it again. Date of review: March 30, 2009
