In short: Good run with 'Traditional' Scottish weather!! Chip time was a full minute longer than my GPS watch though, which did me out of a PB by 30 seconds. A full minute, can that really be right? Date of review: March 8, 2009
In short: Fantastic organisation, PB (just) In full: Of all my marathons this was probably the best organised. Noticed some complaints about lack of free T-shirts (I’ve a drawer full of T-Shirts that don't fit) and cost (try some of the big city marathons if you think this was costly).
In reality, plenty water, energy drinks and marshalling which is the most important thing on a marathon.
Yes, the Greenway was hard work, but it was the last few miles of a marathon and pretty warm, so unlikely to be the most thrilling experience.
In short: Something a bit different for us 'road runners' out there. In full: A nice size field, still intimate but big enough to have a good atmosphere. Fantastic organisation and good value for money. A tough course, felt like i'd joined the foreign legion for a moment! Particularly loved the sand slides down the bigger dunes. Was I the only one who was a little intimidated by that sinister helicopter that kept appearing from behind the dunes? Date of review: July 9, 2006
In short: Despite the rain, a great day and a great run. Well organised and friendly. The only dissapointment as ever in Edinburgh, is the suprising lack of support in Princes street (apart from the girls of Debenhams), Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: A nice downhill start to the race before climbing up to the bridge. Didn't realise quite how curved the bridge is until you run over it. A good day, fantastic scenery and well organised and marshalled so well worth the journey. Date of review: August 14, 2005
