In short: Fantastic event, I'm definitely coming back. In full: This was my second marathon, I ran Edinburgh earlier this year. I struggled badly with the heat in Edinburgh so the rain this weekend was welcome for me. The atmosphere out on the course was fantastic, there was a great sense of camaraderie. The course is tough but not as bad as I had feared, the dreaded hill at mile 19 won't hold so many fears when I come back next year!!
