In short: sort out the finish very poor In full: did this race 3 years ago so was really looking forward to it. How dissappointing!! How can they get it so wrong?? Great atmosphere at the start, good route, why were the supporters not allowed at the finish? Big screen didnt work. Shambollic finish area treated like cattle not people. Queues for medal/goody bag/baggage/ even a drink. Why no space blankets? why the long walk to reunion area and bus stop? the finish in the race course 3 years ago was excellent. EMF you got it so wrong, the finish spoilt what would have been a great end to a great weekend of running. WILL NOT BE BACK FOR THE MARATHON. will not recommend this race. SORT IT!!

In short: Fantastic new course In full: I loved the new course, the marshalls were brilliant as ever, it would be hard for me to find a full marathon this well organised Thank you all who helped out Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: A well organised,PB potentil course In full: as always well organised, Ecci Road brilliant. the price a bit steep for a "goody bag of adverts" the tshirt ok but the medal was much better for the money. Date of review: May 20, 2007
In short: Glad I cameback for another shot at 26.2miles In full: I really enjoyed this marathon, although the support is a bit thin in the second half, but the marshalls are fantastic. a very hot day but still managed a PB, so well chuffed. Date of review: October 1, 2006
In short: a tough race but nice scenary In full: A good race, well organised, cheery commentry at the finish. Due to the really hot weather could have been more water stations. The drink in the goody bag was most welcome and so was the banana.
In short: my home race, good PB potential In full: The start and finish in stadium is great, the mile markers could be brighter, missed a few. Great atmosphere on Ecci road. took 10 mins off last years time will be back 2007 Date of review: May 15, 2006
