In short: Well organised and terrific marshalsl In full: A tough challenging marathon made by the excellent organisation and the wonderful marshalls - even had wall to wall sunshine this year - a marathon all marathoners should tackle at least once ! Date of review: November 26, 2012
In short: same old - same old with this organiser - too expensive for such an ordinary well below parr event In full: slight improvement on previous events - however still no clear info on t/shirts and to get a finishers momento you had to know or find a lady in black and ask for one ?? still well below parr - and too expensive for such an ordinary event - on course great marshalls, but the mile walk back to HQ after finishing - nightmare !

In short: Very friendly marshalls - nice organisation In full: Few points - charity event - but £25 steep for an ordinary raod maathon. Mile markers - need to be clearer Route - quiet country roads - no support, just like my training runs. T/shirts - why these sizes ? How many marathon runners are Large or Extra large ? Marshalls very friendly - bit fraught near the end at the Pullover - it was not all clear where we had to go. Great effort by the organisers to get this event going - wee done.
In short: Over hyped - crowded all the way - not really a race unless you are up front - more of a colorful carnival - great for charity entrants - though if you really want to run a marathon - this is not it unless you are at front end Date of review: June 27, 2007
In short: If any organisers need a model - go to Dartmoor - us runners out on the course were well looked after, great marshalls and encouragement - great event - its the 10th next year - enter early as it will be full ! Date of review: June 26, 2007
In short: On the day a shambles before the start - over an hour in the queue to park - then surprise surprise a timing chip to be sorted - just another delay - then 10 mins to the start - why not tell us this in the instructions - and expensive plus £2 to park Date of review: June 26, 2007
