In short: Really nice race, good organisation! In full: Really impressed by the organisation effort and the voluteers! Nice, scenic route with just the right type of hills for me! My first half marathon went very well, with a faster second half!.....this may have had something to do with my sprinting for the fire station crowd, then having to sprint again for the actual finish line!

In short: Fun-tastic first marathon! In full: Ended up be quite a challenge for my first ever running event....! Lots of wind,'sideways' rain at times.....plus the mud! I was loving it! Finished a half hour slower than i hoped in 4hrs15....my poor choice of footwear saw to that, plus I unfortunately suffered from lack of water in the first 7 miles. Anyway, lessons learned and looking forward to doing more events!
Many thanks to the fanstastic organisers/volunteers etc....managed to raise a nice amount for the Guide Dogs too! Date of review: October 2, 2006
