In short: Great route, chip timing, marshalling and on-course drinks. Poor HQ organisation, baggage storage non-existent, woefully understaffed info/admin desk. Suggest pens at start. Date of review: March 11, 2007
In short: Excellent build up race for spring marathons. Really good marshalling and a great challenging course. Hills at 9 and 18 miles are real killers.. In full: The shuttle bus service was excellent. Plenty of drinks stations on course.
Some plastic sheeting or similar floor covering in changing tents could a a good idea especially as it's often wet and muddy this time of year.
In short: Once again, a first class race with a great course, brilliant signage and marshalling, plus a well filled goody bag & great T shirt! Chip Timing is excellent. Date of review: November 19, 2006
In short: 3 lap course, not really flat, but enjoyable. In full: I like the lap course, so you know what's coming up. Being traffic free was good. The 3 laps meant you passed the drinks station twice which was also good on a rather hot day. Could be an idea to start earlier - quite a few races start at 10.30 (or even 10.00) these days.
Only problem I noticed was several people going wrong at the end and missing the detour onto the grass to the finish. Date of review: July 31, 2006
