In short: Fun and runner friendly course In full: It was an incredibly well organised race. Yes there was a slight mix up about the race time, with all information indicating a 10am start and then the final details from the event organiser indicating 10.30am, so a 10.15am start was a good compromise as everyone should have arrived by that point anyway. It was a runner friendly course, traffic free, level running surface, one slight incline, great support from passing walkers and the odd dog. The wind was a bit frisky, but only to be expected from a coastal course. The marshals were exceptionally friendly, and despite the low turnout were positive and encouraging. I'll be back next year as the goodies and the engraved medal were well worth the entry fee. Date of review: April 9, 2012
In short: Fun, friendly and well worth the effort In full: I thoroughly enjoyed running the Bungay marathon which was my 2nd marathon, I even managed a PB! The hills were a killer the second time around, but I was coping okay until the 1/2 marathon runners came past me as I was completing the hills. It was demoralising, and brought me down to earth, as they do leave you standing!
Excellent organisation, though having done BBDRC events before, I wasn't surprised, they do manage to get it right every time.
The marshals, spectators and locals were really encouraging, and I am intending to do it again next year. Date of review: June 4, 2010
