In short: 4th time and I'd love to be back again next year In full: This one deserves a really good reputation, like the Halstead's etc, as a very well organised marathon run by a very friendly running club and at good value. Really supportive marshalls, nice route by the sea, plenty of water, gels and even jelly babies (it was worth running an injury induced PW to be able to take full advantage!), and good medal and t-shirt - there's nothing missing to my mind. Well done TRAC! Date of review: September 5, 2011
In short: nice race organised by local club In full: well done to TRRC for this. testing course in testing conditions. headwind in 1st half and very humid in 2nd half. good marshal support with enough water stations for conditions. course allowed to stay away from busy parts of broadstairs and ramsgate and lots of pedestrians. start/finish were wellmarked and supported and each runner 'named' by man on microphone which was a nice touch. food, toilet and changing areas are considered and donw well. t-shirt, goody bag and medal with massage tent available, what else do you need? thanks very much.

In short: tough, but good In full: A tough marathon, but well organised and enjoyable. As ever, having the right weather is vital.. almost right yesterday, just w little hot, but the organisers can't change it. Thanks TRAC. Date of review: September 5, 2011
In short: Great race by the sea In full: A fairly lumpy first half and pretty much flat second with a little sting in the tail at 25 miles.
It is pretty much by the sea all the way, so nice views and since it is along the promenade there was nice support from the locals sat on their deckchairs along the way.
The organisation was very good, with plenty of drink stations with gels. There were also loads and loads of marshalls handing out jelly babies, who were to the last really supportive and encouraging - a big thank you to all of them. Date of review: September 4, 2011
In short: One of the best races I've done In full: What can I say, great marshall's, great course, great organisation, good goodie bag, great support and best of all I got a PB. The only down side is my legs are hurting like hell, but that's down to me, will do again next year, well done to all. Date of review: September 4, 2011
