In short: If you're thinking of doing a marathon and miss out on the FLM, then make this you next xhoice. In full: Its hard to say too little about this event, the organisation is smashing, the marshalls and stewards are the best i've come across in all the marathons i've run this year (and thats quite a few). Camaraderie is great, its like everyone wants to be everyones friend and get every single person to fulfill their goals ! Looking forward to it for 2005. Date of review: October 19, 2004
In short: Thoroughly enjoyed this race once again In full: Once again a great day out. The large number of Forumites made a difference of course. Abingdon Amblers have a top event here and their organisation and friendly marshalls are an example to us all.
Where do I sign up for next year? Date of review: October 19, 2004
In short: 1st marathon, made it round without walking! Yes it is a long way! In full: Some great scenery, some not so good, some I really can't remember!!! Friendly crowd and very good support all round the course (huge thanks to all the marshals).
Enjoyed meeting other forumites and felt really good at the end - even after getting stuck in the mudbath car park at the end!!! Date of review: October 19, 2004
In short: Enjoyed meeting all the forumites and the pesto gel was a definite must :o) In full: There was a great camaraderie (sp?) amongst the 9 minute milers. RichK logged the mile splits with unerring accuracy. The course was almost flat and the weather was spot on. Great stuff. If I get my head around the idea of doing a marathon again, this would be top of my list in the UK Date of review: October 18, 2004
In short: A great initiation into the world of marathon running In full: Jelly beans on tap, friendly marshalls and great scenery. What more could you want? I had a brilliant day and despite the agony I'm in now, I will be back next year! Date of review: October 18, 2004
