In short: Good, but not worth repeating In full: Let's get this straight, there is nothing wrong with this race, but neither is there anything special about it. The course is flat, but too much of it is 'out and back', and my Garmin claims it to be 0.4 miles short. Organisation was good, aid stations well stocked, good medal and t-shirt. Plenty of parking at Old Trafford. The aid station crews and marshalls were excellent, as was the public support.
Thank you Manchester, but I won't be coming back... Date of review: April 29, 2013
In short: Flat as a pancake and superb support. I'm still smiling! In full: After the disaster of the 2012 race, I wondered how this year's would go. Well, it was FANTASTIC! Great course (completely flat!), unbelievable support (I felt like a princess) and excellent organisation. Simon has certainly learned all the lessons from last year. The icing on the cake was that I did a PB and got in under 4 hours - hooray. Thanks to all the wonderful supporters and marshalls - you made it a day to remember. Oh yes, the weather was fine too!!!
