In short: Nice Venue, great marshals, nice first Marathon In full: Would say this is an ideal marathon to start with. No real hills of any sort, plenty of encouragement by Marshals and even the locals of the surrounding villages!!
Did like the feed station with the Lucozade Sport drink; I needed that! Pity not all of the 'feed' stations had snacks to keep me topped up.
Loved the medal and the goody bag!
A special thanks to the guy of Winbourne A.C (didn't catch his name)who kept me going with his encouragement through the last few miles of the race! Date of review: October 19, 2009
In short: Nice Friday Night Run! In full: Atmosphere was spot on, shame the route didn't take us anywhere near the nicer parts of Shipley park but nice marshalls/support. Achieved a new PB at this here! :) Date of review: July 28, 2006
In short: Very tough and challenging - excellent calorie burner!! In full: First part of the race is all down hill towards the middle, a bit of a rest in the middle with a flatter section before the tough up hill struggles! What's a race without challenges?!? Date of review: July 22, 2006
In short: Superb, friendly race In full: Well marshalled, with great enthusiam and encouragement for us. Nice to see a few familiar faces. Shame the sun was too strong. On summer days maybe an earlier start time of 9/9:30a.m?? Has a PB potential there. Back next year hopefully. Date of review: June 11, 2006
