In short: Good intentions - but again the lap counting was very hit and miss ! In full: I counted my own and politely ignored the "official" lap counters - also heard them telling another runner that he had completed his last lap - the runner disagreed and the official told him to do another lap if he wanted to - however,the runner was wearing a borrowed GPS - had been told about the lap counting.........very wise. Safe, very little traffic on a well marshalles loop in the countryside - just count your own laps.........
In short: A lot of road for what was a Trail Marathon. In full: Signage good in places - but non-existant/hard to spot/parked cars etc, especially the last few miles when you were tired. Date of review: December 16, 2007
In short: You can tell when events are organised by experienced runners. In full: Did the 12 hours - the marathon was good as it gave more runners for a few hours. Interesting 1km lap. Date of review: December 16, 2007
In short: One of the best organised road races on the calendar. In full: Tough challenge but a great day out on the moors - great marshalls and organisation and being on a Saturday a great evening can be had socialising.Any beer drinkers need to try "Jail Ale" - brewed in Princetown !

In short: Poor pre-race instructions. In full: Pre-race instuctions, should have mentioned that a timing chip would need to be worn, could have mentioned to have £2 handy for car parking on the day and to allow an hour to get parked ! - also could have told us how many drinks stations to expect and warned us of the very busy main road/traffic on the return on the other side of the lake.

In short: Excellent - organisation of route markings has really improved,rest of the organisation as always - first rate.. In full: Great marshalls, on the route and at the checkpoints- however it is a "Tough One" Date of review: December 16, 2007
