In short: My first marathon and a very special day In full: This was my first ever marathon and I enjoyed it very much despite the tough last 7 miles.The crowds in Chester and the villages were great. The whole race was superbly organised and as a horse racing fan the final furlong to the finish was spine tingling. Well done to all and will deffo do it again. Date of review: October 13, 2011
In short: Fantastic race, well organised and lovely setting In full: A great race, managed to achieve the PB we had been working towards and didn't get at London! Nice setting and lovely running through the countryside. Well orgnised drinks stations, baggage etc... Loved the technical race t-shirt in the goody bag, especially as you could get different sizes, i'm quite small and usually they are one size fits all so I can never wear them, but I will definately wear this one all the time for running! A fab race which I would definately do again! Date of review: October 13, 2011
In short: Well organized, great atmosphere and scenic course. In full: This was my first marathon and I don't think I could have picked a better one to "break my duck".
The organization seemed to run like clockwork,with friendly volunteers at the drinks stations and marshalling point. The people of Chester and outlying villages turned out to cheer us on through the scenic countyside.
Will def. be back next year. Date of review: October 13, 2011
