In short: Don't be deceived. As much elevatiion per mile as a Lakeland / Coastal marathon! In full: A very tough cut-off for the slower runner (think ~4.30h flat time) but if you have the endurance, sub 5h30 is very achievable. You just have to focus on getting speed into your legs and going for it.
Great fun, fantastic marshalls and a great post event breakie too, albeit at 2-3 in the afternoon. Date of review: October 28, 2011
In short: Great scenery, great marshalls In full: A really well organised event, especially at the start. The finish area became a bit chaotic and it was not easy to get a drink, which on a warm day is what i needed! Fantastic views although the inclines are not insignificant. I'll be back again next year! Date of review: September 22, 2008
