In short: Poor Oranisation Didnt get a Medal In full: 1. Start a joke - should do a wave system, I spent the whole race stuck behind people. I am currently in 36/37 min shape and did 42mins! 2. Course is very flat very good for PB if you start at the front but no way of doing this - get a wave system! 3. Finish - weren't told where to go to get medal. But worse than that,I went to get medal and they said I couldn't get one because I wasn't collecting a gab from the baggage area. WHAT?!!?!?!? How does this make sense? I had my number on, I live in London so don't need to take a bag! 4. Race is £50 - absolute ripoff!
Wont do again but organisers don't care they'll still get thousands doing it next year
In short: Great Race for a PB! In full: I'll get the negatives out then talk about how great the race was. I agree with couple of others, it was odd to finish then don't be able to get into the stand easily. Also just a tip - those with GPS watches locate the satellite before getting to start line as it is under shelter and couldn't find location. Otherwise it was a perfect day, no wind, good temperature and dry! The course is very flat and all on road therefore perfect for a good time! It was my first marathon so had no reference but it was a very enjoyable route. The scenery is actually ok and the organisation was great!! I would recommend this very highly along with the Passage De Terror and crazy golf but unfortunately The Big One broke down!! Perfect weekend in The Sandpiper Apartments!!! Incredible...

In short: Fast and Flat In full: I entered this for a PB, which I managed by over 5 mins (granted I am fitter now). Flat course on road. Enough water station, there were enough marshalls. Good T-shirt, medal and food at the end. BBQ food also available. Plenty of parking a short walk away from start/finish. Great race all round, will do it again!!.... Date of review: March 11, 2013
In short: 5k - Nice course, bit expensive, but definitely worth a go, could be PB potential! In full: Says flat/hilly - there are four (2 in each lap) I would say slight inclines but nothing that would damage your time at all, so would describe as flat. 2009 race went off a bit slow so I didnt get PB, but next time!! Great for beginners standard is low compared with a lot of other races. Well done to all!! Date of review: June 15, 2009
In short: Undulating but fast definite PB potential. In full: I got a new PB over a minute faster than previous best. Some Marshalls were too busy thinking what am I doing here but otherwise very well organised. Very hot weather prob stopped faster times all round. Definitely recommend!! Date of review: May 5, 2008
In short: Good race, if wind was down then definite PB potential as flat course all the way. In full: I like the route, is not scenic but were not here for the scenary. Good PB potential if the wind died down, i was well on for a PB until the final mile. Date of review: November 27, 2007
