In short: The muddiest event I've ever done In full: Excellent organisation including late changes to the route because I assume the Marsh was impassable. Apart from the ubiquitous mud, friendly marshalls and runners and a nice shot glass souvenir, although I would have preferred the T-shirt to be the technical type. Date of review: December 7, 2009
In short: Excellent organisation and ideal running weather, plus superb scenery. Would have preferred the T-shirt to be technical like the one at the South Downs Marathon.y Date of review: October 5, 2009
In short: Lovely, mainly flat trail run. However it's important to follow the instructions rather than follow other runners, otherwise you could do an extra 4 miles like me! Date of review: July 20, 2009
In short: Although I have run over 70 marathons, this was my first ultra and the scenery, people and weather were all magnificent. The views were superb and the mud unprecedented in my experience, but I felt good at the end. Very friendly marshalls and compet Date of review: December 10, 2008
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
