In short: Fantastic!!! In full: Everything about this race was brilliant - superbly organised, amazing scenery and friendly marshalls. This was my 15th half marathon, and I have to say that it's my favourite! Got a shiny new PB too :) Will definately go for the full marathon next year. Well done and many thanks to all involved in this event. Would recommend to all - it's well worth the journey! Date of review: November 9, 2009
In short: Fun, Fab & Fantastic!!! In full: Exceptional marathon in every sense. My 2nd Loch Ness (and 2 PB's - so can't be that bad!)- and it won't be the last. A big thank you to all the helpers/marshalls who were very friendly and encouraging. Great scenery. Goodie bag & medal were brill, too. Tee shirt was nice, but would prefer a technical tee even if it means paying a higher price for entry. Well done Baxters - see you next year :o) Date of review: October 8, 2009
In short: Fabulous marathon - hope it's back again next year! In full: This is the toughest marathon I've done so far - but without doubt is the one that has given me the greatest sense of achievement.
The scenery was just out of this world.
The organization was faultless. The race tee shirt was worth running for (as well as the commemorative trophy). The people at the water stations and the marshalls/first aiders were fantastic and really helpful. The post race food was great.
Many thanks to all involved for a truly memorable event. I cannot praise this event highly enough. I'll be back next year if there's another. Date of review: May 25, 2008
In short: Truly Amazing Marathon...Well Done Baxters!!! In full: Everything about this event was fantastic, and I am very happy to have been a part of it. Everyone along the course (water/drink stations, marshalls, first aiders, spectators - and fellow runners) were encouraging and friendly, and made the day special.
The scenery was out of this world, and it really helped when the going got tough!
Well done to the organizers - they did a first class job! Thanks should also go to the catering staff at the end of the race, and the pre-race pasta party.
Quality goody bag and fab tee-shirt.
All and all, BRILLIANT - will be back next year! Date of review: October 8, 2007
In short: Really lovely small half marathon! In full: Can't fault this event at all. Well organised, nice marshalls and friendly water station people. The course was well routed. Well done to all involved with this half. Got a PB too! Mooooo! Date of review: April 9, 2006
In short: I not fussy, but .... In full: I could go on moaning about this one for some time! Toilet queues at the start - badly spaced out water stations - uneven roads with loads of potholes - marshalls saying stupid/unhelpful things - and to top it all a naff 'medal' at the end that looked like it came out of a lucky bag. Glad I did it for the experience - but I won't be back. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Absolutely fabulous half marathon - everyone should do it!! In full: This has been my favourite half marathon to date. Great marshalls, nicely manned water stations, well thought out goody bag and a fantastic tee-shirt at the end.
The course was challenging (I've not done any cross country since leaving school!) - but I loved the whole thing.
This is a must do event for beginners to more experienced runners alike.
And, it was a real bargain to boot!! Date of review: February 26, 2006
