In short: Great run with excellent organisation In full: This is the second time I have run this race today I came away with a PB, so its quick. Great friendly marshals great goodie bag, great t-shirt, I'll be back next year :) Date of review: May 12, 2013
In short: friendliest marshals, terrific scenery who needs more! In full: Very well organised indeed. The route was wonderful looping through Essex countryside on very minor roads and lanes. The bloke in front of me nearly got bowled over by a muntjac deer. How often will you ever see that!n Date of review: May 12, 2013
In short: Glad I picked this for my first In full: Luckily I live local so not far to go. The scenery was beautiful and I didn't find it too hilly..organisation faultless and marshals and spectators alike very encouraging. Date of review: May 12, 2013
In short: Superb In full: This was my second marathon having done Brighton 4 weeks previously & it was excellent - superb organisation, brilliant scenery, the course is fairly challenging (that's a positive!) It's run mostly on country lanes that are open to traffic but I must have been passed by about 10 cars all day.
Local support excellent, all in all a superb race - I'm proud to say this is my local marathon & will definitely be entering next year! Date of review: May 12, 2013
In short: Scenic running, wonderful crowds, great organisation In full: A great race. I loved it. Beautiful scenery- fields or rapeseed, sheep and lambs, blue sky and clouds, what more could you ask for? Maybe a few less hills! But with other runners and spectators egging you on, the hills don't seem so bad after all :-). The organisation is fantastic, the marshals do a great job. In short, faultless. If you pick only one marathon next year, I would recommend this one. Just make sure there is a place left for me please :-) Date of review: May 12, 2013
