In short: Very Good Friendly Race :-) In full: Nice route, quite challenging if you're going for a PB but on the upside definitely not flat and boring.
There was some issues with a delayed start but I always turn up in plenty of time so had no problems parking and the facilities were really good. I thought the pre-race communication was good too so had expected the missing mile markers, really pleased i had my garmin though so i knew how i was getting on.
A few good suggestions on here as to how things could have been improved but overall a good event, thanks. Date of review: April 20, 2012
In short: Not the most scenic but good PB course and good finish In full: Well organised as usual, bit annoying with slow runners at the front at the start all cleared within 1/2 mile though. Did marathon this time and lap 2 was a bit boring with a lot of litle detours to make up the distance, wouldn't have minded another water stop but could have managed that better myself. Got a good PB so good day and the only reason I wouldn't do the marathon again is because I'm happy with the time I got. May do the 1/2 again, it's a good course for that.

In short: Good race, would be nice if finish wasn't in middle of nowhere In full: Good race with plenty of helpful friendly marshals, got a PB over the distance so really happy with that.
The course was a bit 'loopy' before you got on the main circuit and the finish was nowhere near the start. A coach was laid on but there were too many people for the coach so a lot of people were hanging around in the cold for too long. Date of review: January 23, 2011
In short: Course was harder than advertised, scenery was fantastic In full: Beautiful day, scenery and very friendly atmosphere. Course had it's fair share of hills, still managed a PB even though I went out too fast and got my nutrition completely wrong. Bit too expensive though!! Date of review: March 21, 2010
In short: The weather made a flat course quite challenging, enjoyed it though and got my PB!! My family who came to watch found it hard to get a good spot because my daughter is only 2 and we had a pushchair!! Me Garmin showed over 13.4 aswell. Date of review: March 18, 2007
