In short: My first marathon, an excellent introduction! In full: Great atmosphere with plenty of support around the course. Organisation was very good and being able to get your own drink at two points on the course was much appreciated Date of review: October 26, 2013
In short: Great race but with challenging hills In full: Really enjoyed this marathon despite the hills!
Thought it was very well organised, though could perhaps improve it with more bottles at the drink stations, paper cups especially on a hot day are a bit inadequate.
Despite this thoroughly enjoyed this race. It's a beautiful course but challenging. Very well organised, good photographers and helpful marshals. For £20 entry fee, you cant go wrong. Highly recommended. Date of review: May 20, 2013
In short: Lovely scenic race on quiet country roads. In full: First time running this, and I'll definitely be back! A very friendly race, relaxed but well-organised, with a lovely scenic course on quiet country roads. Date of review: May 17, 2013
In short: A great race for a PB, support, marshals, feed stations and facilities. With the added bonus of a senic route with very little traffic. This was my second year of running this race and I hope to return next year. Date of review: May 16, 2013
In short: Brilliantly organised but relaxed marathon. The only on-road marathon I do. Beautifully rural, the windy course and undulations only help to maintain the interest. Other runners seem so friendly too. By runners for runners and it shows. Date of review: May 14, 2013
In short: My first marathon and I will certainly do this again! In full: Pretty flat course, fantastic organisation, regular water/food stops, roads stay open so supporters can follow the route with you and shout support to you throughout! My first ever marathon and less than 2 weeks later I am already desperate to run my next! I recommend this marathon. Only slight disappointment was the lack of support from the locals along the route, but it was much more rural than I'd thought. Nonetheless - a brilliantly well organised run.
