In short: Just fantastic - everything perfect... In full: A great race, lovely tour - mostly flat but a few small hills near the end. Everything worked on the day, bag drop, start, fantastic support and super encouraging marshalls, wonderful pace setters, great drinks stations, great everything. Can see why it's No.1 in the U.K. Chris and Andy.. be very proud of what you have done at Chester. Inspiring. Date of review: October 8, 2013

In short: Super Fast and Beautiful course In full: My 3rd Marathon and my favourite so far - I smashed my PB by 19 minutes and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Excellent local support and lovely scenery throughout, with barely a hill of note makes it ideal for beginners or those looking for a PB. Drinks/gel stations were ideally spread throughout.

In short: Great event, maybe add more water. In full: My second go at this great run, I trained for a time around 5hrs and was on course for this until I got to the drink station around 18 miles and discovered that they had no water left. They did have Lucozade Elite but as I had just taken an Isogel with caffine, I thought better of it.
The weather was a lot warmer than last year and in order not to dehydrate even more than I was already I was forced to walk/jog until I had managed to get water at a later water station.
Great event, well put together, well done Chris and Andy. Date of review: October 8, 2013
In short: My first marathon and will definitely be my next! In full: a great starting and finish location, stunning scenic route and well organised event. The phenomenal volunteers and spectators along the route make it a great day. As soon as you sign up to event the updates from "Chris and Andy" together with training tips and run info is amazing. A great team certainly organise a great event. Date of review: October 8, 2013
