In short: Superb apart from the fat controller in charge of baggage busses In full: Superb race, a bit too hot for a PB today. Fans out in thousands as usual and very helpful. All support staff and bands were superb. Sad to see a few things around the course with the Medics. Hope all was well on the final mile for one guy.
Hopefully back for next year Date of review: September 20, 2009
In short: One of those things you just got to do In full: Brilliant crowds and street entertainments, loved the whole family atmosphere on the streets. A must-do. Getting very big now - so you're fighting against being boxed in all the way round - not for the claustrophobic. Very expensive entry fees. Date of review: August 5, 2009
In short: My 13th year in this event and it never seems to lose it's appeal. The downside is the entry fee, I even pay extra to guarantee my entry (GRN member). People are fantastic on the course throughout and the atmosphere is second to none. Date of review: June 20, 2009
In short: Great atmosphere In full: Enjoyed the experience of the Great North Run, atmosphere great and finish of race, scenic although rest of run, obviously industrial. Glad to say I've done it once, but that's my lot Date of review: January 2, 2009
