In short: Love Bath, love the crowds, good for a PB In full: I live in Bath and so I'm a little bias! The organisation was really good, it is well signposted to the runners village, lots of facilities, good entertainment coverage on the route.
I never noticed the mile markers but I know the route so I didn't really need them. The course follows the main road in and out of Bath (towards Bristol) so not the prettiest in Bath and you don't take in the sites en route but you can enjoy all that Bath offers after the race!!
I was in the white section but must admit there were many runners in this section which were much slower and perhaps shouldn't have been in there. It made it a little tricky at the start where I would have expected to go out fast but instead had to duck and dive around lots of people!
Lots of drink stations, jelly babies littered the streets afterwards and a nice goody bag to follow. I like the medal and the fact you are sent you name and time to stick on it afterwards which is a nice memento especially if you get your PB which I managed to. The t-shirt is a tent though. It's a size large, but seriously it's wide enough to fit two of me in there!!
