In short: Fantastic fun if you like mud dirt and laughs! In full: How much fun was this race ? It was amazing! Thankyou so much to the guy that helped pull me out of the waist deep mud I was stuck in! Everything was amazing but the only think I can fault where the changing marquees with windows in them ????? why? And definitely need a person with water balster to fire the muck off! Excellent goody bag and t-shirts for ladies and men ..... how cool is that ? Usually never heard of :o) Amazing race and would definitely do it again ......... I like mud!

In short: I preferred the old route with the hills and switch backs but the new route was fine In full: although no hills equaled sore hips as you didn't have to change your running style. Considering the remoteness of some of the route there where a fair whack of spectators etc the wind wasnt that bad although my pal has declared her hatred for the new route and wont be back but then you cant please everyone.
Also, its not really Edinburgh Marathon as only the first 5miles are actually in Edinburgh itself :-) Date of review: June 5, 2007
In short: A well organised run and lots of marshalls ! In full: I enjoyed the half ! Completely different to last years fiasco when I couldn't cross the finish line and got alloacted a finish time 45mins after I'd finished ! Everything ran like clockwork, loads of loo's, marshalls, water stations !
Also, why are some people slating the the marshalls ? They gave up THEIR time to allow this race to go ahead ! I think they are great ! Date of review: April 2, 2007
