In short: Like running on the moon! In full: A completely unique race on private china clay land giving you an experience you would otherwise never have whilst running. Stunning scenery as you climb higher & higher. It's a toughy but the organisation is second to none & the jelly babies & sponge stations a god send! Date of review: May 19, 2014
In short: It's official - the best Marathons are in Cornwall! In full: Gordon's alive! This was incredibly hard. Hilly, Hot and tough terrain. However, the scenery is stunning, almost 'other-wordly' at times. Great organisation, friendly marshalls and a free 4-handed massage at the end. Nice goody bag, bottle of beer and nice blingy medal. This event is up there with the Cornish Marathon. By runners for runners, cheap and one of the best. I'll be back. Thanks Date of review: May 18, 2014
