In short: Great event, but serious tough on your quads! In full: I picked The Picnic as my 100th marathon and was delighted by the support offered by Dr Rob, who arranged for me to have the race number 100, which is a great thing to have. I was also supported by the marshals on route as well, verbally and handshakes on the last leg. It all helped to make it a special day for me.
Great athmosphere, with great support from other runners due to the out and back nature of the course, from the other Picnic runners and the Munroe runners as well. Thanks to all of you too.
Dr Rob gave me an extra medal for me to frame with some photos, and another t-shirt and got involved in my post race celebration. He has also been supportive afterwards.
Great event, well organised, but a seriously hard race. I'll be back in two years and again in four years when it might be my 200th! But do not tell my wife that! Date of review: June 26, 2009
