In short: Excellent race, well organised. In full: Great organisation, thanks to the marshalls and police for a very well organised event. Only gripe was the first mile was a bit congested. Nice beer glass, which came in handy in the local pub afterwards. Will definetely run this one again. Date of review: September 6, 2009

In short: Fantastic!! In full: This was my fifth time running the London Marathon, and this was easily the best supported...A 26.2 mile street party, well done London, and thank you Flora for 14 years of supporting the event.

In short: Glorious Scenery In full: Very well organised event. The course is quite hilly, however the long downward stretchs make up for the 3-4 steep upward climbs. Excellent for spectators, as they get to see the start, 3k, 7k and the Finish all within a short walk from the car park.
Will definetly be back next year! Date of review: March 1, 2009
