In short: Good organisation, poor medal, no enegy drinks! In full: Good organisation, started on time. Plenty of loo's on course. Very hard first marathon in the sun, starting at 1pm far to late in the day means a late finish!
Was aware from the pre race literature that only water was available so had to carry our energy drinks/gels for the duration of the marathon. Disapointing medal compared to Bristol and Reading halfs but admid they were much more expensive.
Pity that the run in was being dismantled before the last runners were in.
Race marshalls generally very good. Plenty of drinks stations. Date of review: April 25, 2005
In short: Lung busting, knee grazing, Shite covering fun. In full: Lost my shoe, had to run back into the mud in my sock. Submerged my crown jewels in freezing water, gashed my knee had ended up on antibiotics for a week. BUT I FINISHED! Totally mad but best race I've done for fun and challenge!
