In short: fantastic organisation. Tough hills and wind In full: Fantastic signage, marshalls, support. Toilets - no queue??? (Must have gone too early?) Loved technical t shirt - actualy something I can use. (Nice t collect before race as managed to get small size) Only downside no shower so visted fitness first in peterborough before meeting friends for well deserved sunday lunch Date of review: January 23, 2011
In short: Well done the organisers In full: Good race that was well organised. Lots of marshalls and hey were very encouraging. Bit windy in places but the rain held off. The hill near the end was a bit of a bugger though. Date of review: January 23, 2011
In short: well organised, great race In full: Its a bit elity - I did 12 minute miles and I was 3rd to last. They were taking the signs down as I was running past them! But a great race - 2nd time I've done this race and its tough but a goody. Date of review: January 23, 2011

In short: Great marathon training run and superbly organised... In full: To keep things simle there is nothing you can fault about the race, route or organisation. Flawless effort from every single marshll, the Race Director must be proud. Well worth the weekend away from Devon for this one as part of my prep for the Brighton marathon. Thank you, see you next year! Date of review: January 25, 2010
In short: fabulously encouraging marshalls, great organisation, hot dogs to die for :) In full: This is the furthest I've ever run so I was pleased to simply complete the distance. The hills were challenging to say the least but the marshalls were absolutely brilliant - extremely encouraging and friendly. The post-run refreshments deserve a mention too - top hot dogs and bacon butties and Proper Tea from a Teapot. Thank you to the whole team who organised the race, it ran like clockwork, which is more than I can say for my legs..... Date of review: January 24, 2010
In short: Great Marshalls In full: The Marshalls were brilliant, 95% appalled and cheered you on and I try to thank most of them on the way round. Great but challenging course. Only negatives, XL top please for the larger blokes like me and can we park nearer the start/finish Date of review: January 22, 2009
In short: Very enjoyable, only one grumble. In full: Marshals were up and about early and very helpful to direct you to a car park. A shame I ended up at the start and therefore didn't get to race HQ until after the race, as the t-shirts were given out at the start rather than at the finish (why?), I therefore didn't get one. As every other race issues them at the finish why not here??
Apart from this mild grumble really enjoyed the race. Hills were nowhere near what I was expecting and great to have a first lap to assess the course before putting the hammer down for the second.
Eagerly waiting for the results to appear on the website but nothing yet.
Travelled a long way for this one and will have it on my radar for next year. The marshals were superb and the weather very kind. I hate running in the rain and although it was cold and a bit windy the sunshine was awesome.
