In short: Delayed start that wasn't delayed?... In full: Loved the race.
Though the complete mess up at the start was unforgiveable. Announcing a delayed start until 11:10, then letting the race go at 11:05 is beyond ridiculous. Missed the start by 2 full minutes which left me running past people for 20 minutes as politely as possible.
Lovely course, challenging yet fast, but almost ruined by that one silly announcement. Date of review: February 3, 2013
In short: 2nd Timer, even better this year In full: This is simply an amazing event. Challenging due to the hills, but with that comes the knowledge that any flat Marathon is going to feel easy in comparison.
Marshalls are amazing, cheery throughout. Drinks stations are simple, well spaced and organised.
Just a really friendly atmosphere. The course was better this year, the small 3 mile loop was better placed towards the end.
I'll be back next year. Date of review: March 26, 2012
