In short: Proper good In full: Absolutely superbly organised, wonderfully helpful marshalls and top notch support in villages and around town. Understandably voted UK no 1 in 2012 will take something very special to knock these guys off the podium in 2013! Date of review: October 7, 2013
In short: Great course on varying surfaces In full: Great organisation, well marshalled and a generous bananna, twix, water and medal at finish. Flat is isnt, great course it is, with a real carnival atmosphere at the end!
In short: Very well organised, decent course In full: Clockwork organisation, excellent and very friendly marshalls, especially liked parking simplicity, loads of water stations and top notch showers afterwards. Maybe worth looking at a sports drink station at 20 ish and possibly a couple of goodies other than medal at end - in summary - highly recommended 4?? Date of review: April 28, 2013
In short: No frills - what you see it what you get In full: Lots of negative comments about organisation, atmosphere, goodie bag and value for money - all are valid up to a point - however IMO running a marathon is all about the course and if you are of a similar mind then you will have to go a long way before finding a more scenic, undulating, varied and ultimately satisfying marathon challenge. If Fat Feet address some of the gripes then this would be a must do. Date of review: November 5, 2012
In short: Superb organisation, super friendly, great route In full: Organisation and route are magnificent - the rest is up to you! I hobbled into the bag collect area only to see my rucksack already on the counter- the marshall had obviously clocked my number from 50 yards and gone to fetch it already! Just another example of fantastic efficiency and friendliness that permeated the entire day - this is a truly special event Date of review: October 7, 2012
In short: Top notch all round In full: Great course with a nice downhill finish. Superb communication before the event which looked like it might well be a casualty of the weather, excellent support throughout and tasty beer in the goody bag at the end, does it get any better than this?
