In short: Loved it, great day allround, bit of trouble parking, but can't fault it otherwisee In full: Charming marathon with some fantastic views, over beautiful countryside, almost made you forget the pain of the 7 sisters right at then end. The best view was Eastbourne, about a mile away downhill at the end. I do question the distance though, I only got 25.7 on my Garmin. Date of review: October 29, 2007

In short: A magnificent run on the Downs In full: My second year of running this and it once again proved to be a brilliant day out. It is a tough course but the atmosphere and scenery really makes up for the hills. The support from other runners and walkers is great and the marshalls are brilliant and encouraging. It really is a treat to be able to take part in such a wonderful day, enjoy such incredible views and feel the satisfaction of having completed such a tough marathon. Huge thanks to the organisers!

In short: Brilliant! In full: Only my third marathon, and my second time here. This race burts, but it's so worth it. PB this year, even with a very sore knee slowing me right down over the Sisters at the end.
Might not be back next year (want to find a flat mara to run), but will definitely be back sometime. Date of review: October 29, 2007
