In short: Make sure you know the 13 route! In full: If the organisation is off, don't rely on what marshals there may be - I did, and after 13.2, jogged another 5.8. My legs are tender! Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: hills hills and more hills, but a good hard work out. well marshalled with plenty of food/drink In full: hills hills and even bigger hills, a tough well marshalled race . Drinks and food on the 21m course were just in the right places and a decent friendly bunch of runners. only gripe I have is that so many events say safe baggage, but its not. As someone else said, if you finish the path n downs then a marathon should be easy. Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: A very enjoyable stroll! In full: Thanks for the organsiation Mike - thoroughly enjoyed my little amble. Excellent finish line with plenty of goodies - just missing a nice cold Guinness. Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: Two hills, one very tough, but worth it for the views! Jaffa cakes were very welcome at the drinks stations! In full: What a race! This was the first 21 mile race I've completed. The organisation was first rate, and we were followed by a marshall on a bike. The weather was kind and it was a fast race. The rolling start worked well for us, although having to stick to paths was a little frustrating at times. Some of the mile markers were out so it didn't feel like 21 miles at all. For a run on my doorstep I couldn't ask for more! Will be back! Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: Loved it - challenging but friendly. Some minor orgaisation issues. In full: The marshalls were great but there needed to be more of them and the mile markers on the 21 were a bit off at the end ... but all easily forgiveable for what was a challenging but enjoyale race.
Lovely competitors, lovely organisers, lovely hills .... and Jaffa cakes! Date of review: March 28, 2010
In short: nice warm up especially the first hill! In full: (21 mile) A nice marathon training long run, first hill was nasty but after that was ok if a little dull when back on the A20. A few more signs or marshalls on junctions would be nice when up on the downs. Last 'mile' was way off though Date of review: March 28, 2010
In short: most enjoyable In full: couldnt fault most of it , did hear that some signs had been removed but i never went off-course and had 20.85 miles on the garmin at the finish - loved the jelly babies as well ! Date of review: March 28, 2010
