In short: SImply incredible. If you've never done it you'll never understand how great it was! In full: My first marathon. I was just amazed! The crowd are worth three months training! As soon as I crossed the line I thought ' I want to do it again'. I'll run next year and every year I can Date of review: April 23, 2005
In short: Every runner should do this at least once - won't rush to do it again, I found 4 months preparation tougher than running it In full: Fantastic atmosphere, wonderful crowds, historic route. Seems churlish to criticise, but why was the course so narrow around miles 16-17 (half-empty road roped off), and couldn't the exit from the finish area have been better managed? Still brilliant.
In short: Wow In full: The only probs I could see were not enough loos and I had probs getting away from the end to Victoria Stn. Other than that thanky you for a great race. Date of review: April 23, 2005
