In short: Well organised and thank you to marshals for their support In full: Only thing I would add is that if slower people are starting at the front, can they please not run 4 abreast on the first few narrow roads thus preventing people from getting past and into their stride. Otherwise a great run. Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: Great run for marathon training In full: I tried not to race this event as I am running Boston marathon next month, but got swept up and ran a little quicker than expected. The mile markers were spot on, drink stations at the right places, well marshalled & good signage. Only minor niggles- would be nice to have some nosh (mars bar pieces/raisons etc) especially in the latter food stations; a drink table at the end of the funnel is also needed. I'll be back Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: very well organised, stewards where one would expect them and enough drinks stations In full: a warning to other runners, don't wear a thermal vest on such an event under two other tops, it doesn't help performance. A timely reminder for London! Only just made the cut, the stewards were standing there with the tape poised and struggled due to the above for the final loop. Definitely one for London preparation.

In short: Flat 21.2 Miles, A Few Loops, Early Start In full: :-)
Seems to always be the day the clock goes forward and with a 9am start that means you are really on the start line at what seems like 8am.
Mile markers, excellent water/squash station provision, good marshalling and the mental torture of a 'decide during the race' 15.1 mile or 21.2 mile option. This means that all the way from mile 12 your mind will be playing tricks on you trying to tell you that the sensible thing to do is to take the 15 mile finish.
Ideal pre-FLM race. Enter early, it fills up fast. Date of review: March 25, 2007
