In short: 5 time for me love this one :) In full: This was the 5th time for me and it is one of my favourite races...I am not a front runner and love this one as it is hard but fun....the only shame this year is that the mars bars and juice had already run out when I got to the stations when I spoke with the marshalls about this they informed me that they had not been given the normal numbers.....as there were plently of walkers behind me who would still need to rely on the stations it was a shame....the first station that had a mars bar was the 22mile station... could the organisers look into this as we had paid the same money as the front runners.....that is my only moan if I had of known that I couldn't rely on the stations I would have been more prepared......the marashalls where fantastic as normal well done to you all....will be back next year :) Date of review: October 28, 2012

In short: My love affair with Beachy continues In full: In testing conditions this year it was still an amazing experience. The organisation is brilliant at this event (although we did encounter a few of the water stations hoarding the food they had been given to hand out, what was that about?) the route is stunning and challenging and fellow participants chatty and encouraging.
But the highest words of appreciation must go to the marshals who gave up their day to stand in freezing winds and rain for our benefit. You were all amazing. Date of review: October 28, 2012
In short: a beautiful beast of a run! In full: First time for me - and thanks to guy who put a film of last year's race on YouTube...helped me to prepare. I'd recommend this event as a "must do" but don't underestimate it! My thanks to all each and everyone who organised, marshalled and cared & fed us...the sausage rolls in particular were fab!

In short: A tough marathon made even tougher!! But then it is Beachy Head In full: This was my fourth outing at BH and once again it had everything. Every year I come back as its one of my favorites and the weather and conditions each year are different too. This year we had minus temperature wind chill to contend with and wind so strong it could stop you in your tracks, but will I be back to see whats in store for next year? You bet.

In short: Excellent, friendly and thoroughly professional event. In full: Many thanks to everybody involved in organising and delivering BHM 2011. Previously did the event in the middle of the pack. This year did it as a run /walk with my brother. Once again, thoroughly impressed with the organisation, fellow participants and spectacular course. Looking forward to 2012.
