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.
