In short: Excellent but tough marathon In full: Will definitely be back for more.
My only comments are regarding the goody bag that seemed quite light this year - and could have done with something edible in them. Also a couple of parts of the initial lap were a little confusing. I like the vest but would have preferred a nice t-shirt that I can wear more often than a vest (and show off to others).
Big thanks though to the organisers and marshalls.
In short: Excellent new marathon. Very challenging with the hills - especially the last loop. Good quality t-shirt at the end to be worn with pride. Will definitely come back despite the hills. Date of review: May 15, 2011
