In short: Superb day out on South Downs Marathon - my fastest off road marathon. In full: Lots of hills, but only slightly slower and so much more enjoyable than this year's FLM. Today I don't even feel as if I've run a marathon!
Great organisation, friendly marshalls and runners and, of course, fantastic scenery. Just need a larger T-shirt that I hope will be forthcoming. Date of review: June 17, 2007
In short: Brilliant organisation, thanks to the hardy marshalls who had a thankless task in extreme conditions. It was a real challenge battling the elements that I have never previously experienced in an event. However I hope to be there next year, as usual Date of review: March 4, 2007
