In short: I loved it! In full: A lovley way to spend a saturday. Everyone was so nice, and the marshall were great...very supportive. Lovely mice pies and mulled wine at the end, and a christmas pud to take home. Thanks to all involved in todays events. Date of review: December 13, 2008
In short: First GNR, had a blast! In full: Started from the back (K), and had to walk half a mile to get there from the park where the bus dropped us off at 08:10. Lots of loos at the back which became less than minty fresh by the time I ditched my bin bag to start running at 11:04! Lots of lovely people lining the route who had gone out of their way to provide goodies for us, a big thanks to them. Marshalls, St Johns and all other behind the scenes people are amazing. My only gripe would be with having to walk for what seemed like another 13.1 miles to catch the bus back to our hotel! My legs were shot at the finish line....and nuff said about the fruit snacks in the goody bag! Date of review: October 5, 2007
In short: First big event for me, and I loved it! In full: It was a shame that the slower runners such as myself weren't all in the final wave, and had to put up with faster people elbowing their way through and then insinuating PB's weren't reached because of this! I enjoyed it anyway, and I got a PB by finishing!!
