In short: Fantastic scenery, abundant water stations and fun in the rain!!!! In full: My first marathon and really enjoyed it. I knew it was tough so no pressure to achieve a great time, just aiming to get round...even had time to stop and take a few photos! Date of review: October 31, 2005
In short: Addicted will be back next year. In full: I have done a lot of off road marathons this year, this is my favorite. This is the one you must do you will experience nothing like it anywhere. Date of review: October 31, 2005
In short: WHAT A GREAT RACE... In full: My first Snowdonia and what a fantastic race. Not even the weather could dampen the enthusiasm - although it caused me to fall over during the first 25 metres!! The support around the whole course was marvellous. Just a wonderful run out with great people doing a great race. Thank you Snowdonia for the memories... Date of review: October 31, 2005

In short: OUT OF THIS WORLD In full: This was my third marathon in 3months and I can't decide if i enjoyed this or london more. The weather was horrid but the course and viewsn made up for that. The friendly runners, supporters and locals made it a dream. I managed 3:36 so I'm well pleased. Many thanks to all involved. Date of review: October 31, 2005
In short: When the aches have gone, the memories will remain. Brilliant! In full: One of the toughest events I can conceive, finishing with a real brute of a hill and a treacherous off road descent, but I loved it. Superb scenery, memorable (!!!) weather, friendly runners, marshals bearing gifts (mars bars and sweet, hot tea!). The wife tells me the atmosphere amongst the spectators was brilliant too. Well done to all the organisers. See you next year. Date of review: October 31, 2005
In short: already booked time off work for 2006! In full: You will not find a better race of any distance in this country, or probably anywhere else come to mention it. The only 'must-do' race in my calendar, and the often poor weather just adds to the experience!
