In short: Brilliant organisation, brilliant crowds and blooming hot In full: Fantastic event - the best I've done. My first marathon, really suffered in the heat and finished half an hour off my target time but a brilliant day! Date of review: September 11, 2006
In short: Superb organisation, good course, great t-shirt In full: This is the best organised event I have done. It was a good course, lots of waterstations (I had camelbak with me so just used sponges to wet my head)and the finish was great. I will defo be back next year. Hopefully weather will be a bit cooler. Date of review: July 3, 2006
In short: Nasty hills but well organised. In full: I was very impressed with the organisation - the course was well marked out, well marshall and had 3 nasty hills!!! It was a boring course but not worried - the less distractions the better when I'm trying to run quickly!
I got a PB and would definately do this again. Date of review: June 19, 2006
In short: Poor organisation, great place to run! In full: If it wasn't for the poor organisation, this would be one of the best races I've ever done. One steward didn't know that there were 2 lakes so got confused as to where to direct us to the start. My mate collapsed at the end, asked for first aid, the steward went off and came back to say he couldn't find anyone and left my mate!!!!! Such a lovely place to run, if it was better organised, it would be even better. Date of review: May 8, 2006
