In short: small, friendly event In full: This was my first marathon, really enjoyed it (well, the first 20 miles at least).
Course was a little unusual being 26 laps of a 1 mile circuit. The repetitiveness didn't bother me at all and 1 mile laps meant more support, drinks and jelly babies every mile, and mile splits from the chip timing.
Organization was smooth, and there was a good atmosphere from participants and spectators. Also the only event I've been to where there was no queue for the toilets.
Only reason I'm not sure if I'd do this again is because I don't know if I'll ever do another marathon. Date of review: June 20, 2012
In short: well organised, flat course, some slightly challenging terrain In full: Course is flat, mostly on roads and pavement with a short section on the beach. Beach section wasn't too bad so don't let that put you off.
Race was well organised and good value for a chip-timed half marathon. Will probably be back next year. Date of review: February 13, 2012
In short: flat course, well organised, nice views In full: Flat course with chip timing, so good opportunity for a PB (beat my previous best by over a minute to get under 44). Off-road section is on good, relatively smooth paths.
Well organised and good support particularly at the start and finish. Date of review: May 9, 2011
