In short: Can't find fault In full: My first marathon and I was pleased with my choice and very happy with my long sleave tech tshirt, medal and other goodies. Not pancake flat but only one 'serious' hill. Every part of the organisation was perfect. I went to the course the day before for a 'reccy' and met one of the organisers, Chris, who - even though he was clearly busy - took time out to chat to me and the family to offer last minute running and spectating advice, which epitomises everything about the spirit in which this event is organised. Only thing I would worry about is how well the event would survive a downpour as the course can get quite muddy. Luckily, this year, it was dry and absolutely perfect marathon weather.

In short: Could have been better In full: Not the best organisation at the start. Could have done with a bit more signposting. Course offered plenty of viewing / cheering spots for my family support. Lucozade and banana at the end might as well have been placed in the bag. I think that some people were so disheartened with the 'bag of two leaflets' that they didn't carry on to collect them. Distance mess-up was annoying but at least they've dealt with it.
