In short: Reasonably flat, quick course In full: This is a reasonable flat course with only a couple of decent size hills on the route. As it is pretty flat, I shaved 20mins of my previous marathon time.
It was fantastically organised on the day. All of the marshalls were extremley friendly/encouraging. Something which other events would benefit from.
In short: Cold Wet and little support at the finish. In full: This is a really nice and scenic marathon. Watch out for the large amount of cattle grids. However if you pick a bad day for it,it is very testing. We had rain all the way through and had the occasionial deep puddle to run through Waiting at the finish was no medal, no space blankets and hot drinks to look forward to. The finish line soured my experience of my first marathon! Im sure if you get a good day for it, it would be awesome Date of review: November 6, 2012
