In short: Hilly but very scenic route, very friendly and well organised In full: Back after a gap of four years and it didnt disappoint. The varied and beautiful scenery, along with good organisation and a very friendly admosphere makes this race special. Liked the change in the finish line and I got a personal best to boot! Friend did the 10k for the first time and is already talking of returning next year. Date of review: October 6, 2010
In short: Brilliant!! In full: Couldn't fault it. Everything top notch - organisation, buses up to start, course (tough, but it is the Highlands!), atmosphere, fellow competitors, support, goodies. And Inverness is great.
See you next year. Date of review: October 6, 2010
In short: Amazing! In full: Inverness is a great City. The transport organisation ran like clockwork. The out riders were really professional. Drinks at the start. Great scenery. Great atmosphere. Some challenging hills but I still managed a PB of 3:32! Date of review: October 5, 2010
In short: amazing, challenging, scenic,friendly, brilliant race :) In full: Aching in many places after a Pb on hills, hills and then some hills. Swore a little (lot) getting through last mile with the end in sight on the OTHER side of the river and receeding round the longest loop ...it was my 10th marathon and 1st at Loch Ness.. Truly one of the BEST, worth the journey in every respect. I'll be back for sure. Date of review: October 5, 2010
In short: Must-do race In full: Awesome race.An 16 hour round trip drive needs a rewarding race and this didnt disappoint.Big hills but still managed a PB by over 3 minutes - the downhill start really gets you off to a flier. Very impressed with the value - after entering many 10ks this year that charge £20 and then charge you for a T-shirt, £40 for transport, T-shirt, medal, goodie bag and a proper meal at the end seems good value, Definitely back next year
In short: Amazing race, but still aching, only thing that would make it better would be more toilets at the start and more time to get off the bus and to the start line. Date of review: October 5, 2010
