In short: An outstanding marathon. In full: I have run this every year, and the whole event continues to be my favourite race every year. The organisation is excellent, helpful and efficient. The race starts on time (helped by having sufficient toilets!), mile markers are all spot-on, the drinks stations are just where they should be etc. etc.
The marshals are all enthusiastic and clear in their instructions and encouragement.
The course is just challenging enough to make it interesting, and definitely not flat, i'm normally only a couple of minutes off my PB here.
I would totally recommend this marathon to anyone - whatever their standard.
The UK needs more low-key marathons like this. Date of review: May 2, 2011
In short: Well organised, challenging but rewarding In full: Yet another well organized Clarendon (third in a row for me). Of the four Marathons I have completed this Autumn, this event stood head and shoulders above the rest both in terms of runner challenge, atmosphere and organization. The start and finish locations are superb with efficient finish-start transport arrangements and supportive marshals. Date of review: November 6, 2008
