In short: A very tough but enjoyable 1st marathon! In full: Did the full marathon (my 1st) and came thru halfway comfortably in 1.34 before hitting the wall in a big way around 22 miles and staggering to a 3.26 finish! The watersports lake section was extremely tough, the support there was appreciated there but I think i'd have preferred to suffer in silence by then!
I was very impressed with the runners village, the medal is very nice and all the staff were very helpful. The only reasons why I may not race here again are it's too far to come (from Cardiff) for a half marathon and there are plenty of other quicker full marathon courses that I'd like to try. Great day tho! Date of review: September 17, 2010
In short: Excellent race, well supported and great vibe In full: First time here,, I did the half, my husband did the full race. We both enjoyed the event, the HM part of the course is hard and hilly to us East Angular residents, but the parks were very nice to run round. Toilets at the start were plentiful and abundant and still in a useable condition when I finished the HM! Race Village was excellent and kept me occupied while waiting for my husband to finish. Will definitely be back next year Date of review: September 17, 2010
In short: yet again another good day In full: what can one say just seems to get that little better each year can't wait for 2011. Just one thing is it me or are the results harder to understan this year they seem to be all over the place Date of review: September 15, 2010
In short: A great, well organised race In full: This was my first time running the Robin Hood marathon. The pre-race literature was all very good. The organisation was fantastic. The race village kept my kids happy all day. What more can you ask for.
I arrived at 9:15am and getting into car park A was a little stressful. The 2nd half was tough but then I had not trained fully so was expecting it to be harder than usual.
Thanks to all the marshals and everyone involved you did a great job Date of review: September 15, 2010
In short: Well organised with a busy and scenic first half, quite lonely second half In full: My second year here and again the organisation was great. Thanks to all involved. The second half seemed a bit less bleak and lonely this year, helped by the motivational stuff at the water park, but probably also due to me being in less pain. Had trained far better and took 28 minutes off last year's time.
