In short: Dull & Duller In full: Dull start , zig zag round a park ,run along a cycle track with zero atmosphere -the only saving grace ws the finish but even that was after a 1k zig zag round another park -extremely dull ! Date of review: April 1, 2012
In short: brilliant distance, shame we were hidden away down some cycle path In full: really enjoyed the challenge of a 13.1km run. nice distance, not too far, not too short.
good race organisation, well marshalled, clear sign posting, excellent smooth finish.
would have loved some music at the start. the microphone guy was trying really hard but it was a bit flat without accompaniment.
the route was a secluded path along through edinburgh that took in no tourist sights, a shame for such a pretty city and had very little opportunities/locations for what few supporters there were. and the extra bit round the outside of the stadium for the 13.1km bit was rubbish. necessary, i appreciate, but rubbish all the same.
special mention to the co-op men handing out chocolate bars for free just before we arrived at murrayfield. whoop whoop! much appreciated fellas.
In short: Not a bad run but could do with a few more runners and supporters In full: I thought that the run was very scenic and had I not been running would have loved to have taken a picture as we crossed over the forth bridge. I felt very good for the first 10 miles/16k but then there was a long incline to get up and my legs starting to go a little the last 10k were challenging and I was very pleased to have finished. This is the longest run I've done to date - I'm already signed up for the one in London to see if I can better my time! Date of review: May 2, 2011
