In short: Great event In full: I really enjoyed this race. The route is incredible. And very tough. The camaraderie between runners was good. The food and drink stops were well stocked, and the organisers were very enthusiastic. The only gripe was that signage in places could have been improved. I spoke to a couple of runners who went in a wrong direction. Also at the 20-mile food stop, while I was removing my soaking socks (next time I'll carry a change of socks!) I saw two separate runners head off in the wrong direction. The crew realised after the first one, but didn't do anything to try and prevent it happening again, and it did.
Overall though, if you want a marathon to remember, this is it. To give you an idea of how hard it is, I did a 03:23 the week before and a 03:13 the week after, but the Glencoe Marathon took me 04:49... Date of review: October 28, 2013
