In short: Fantastic Marathon In full: I ran 2015 and signed up for 2016 the day after, I've never done that before. Everything was so easy, access, toilets, baggage drop, showers, little or no queues for anything. It probably helps being a smallish field but I suspect the organisation behind the event is the real driver of the reputation this marathon has developed. Looking forward to 2016.

In short: A great event, you could not fault it! In full: So well organised, lots of support on the course, marshals so friendly and encouraging and what about the size of that medal! Date of review: June 9, 2015
In short: Fantastic race In full: I've done all these except the test event and love it. It's a race put on by runners for runners with all the bells and whistles that they would want in a race, including free photos.
In short: Great race .. great organisation .. and a whole load of people dressed as cows. In full: The thought of laps didn't appeal, but I'd heard such good things that I entered anyway. Glad I did! Fantastic organisation, great facilities (no toilet queues, showers, changing rooms, cafe, space for your own refreshment table on the course), perfect for friends/family to watch (while having a picnic), free photographs… and a huge medal.

In short: Great Race! Really well organised and so much support around the course too! In full: Thank you for making my first marathon so great! Everything has been thought of in this race, the volunteers were so supportive too ! Date of review: June 5, 2015
In short: Should be renamed "The Perfect event" In full: 17 laps of a road circuit sounds daunting right? Think again folks, this event is amazing, from support to organisation to marshaling to friendliness, no stone is left unturned by the hosts to make this just such a memorable day.

In short: It was awesome! In full: I had an injury so I couldn't finish, and I still had a fantastic time! The atmosphere was the best I've experienced at a race; it was an enjoyable day from beginning to end. Date of review: June 4, 2015
In short: friendliest race with the best medal! In full: My husband and I travelled from Switzerland for this race and things went very wrong for us on our journey, so was worried about finishing, but having our own drinks table to visit every lap plus seeing supporters got us round even if it wasn't in our best times. There were no toilet queues which has to be an absolute first, everyone was very friendly. The medal was just amazing, the goody bag was fab and getting free photos is the icing on the cake especially as they are such amazing photos. What could have ended up being a disastrous race for us, has ended up being one that we have already said we will run gain next year. I don't think there is anything the race organisers could do to make this a better marathon. Date of review: June 4, 2015
