In short: Challenging but fun, good atmosphere among runners and quite competitive In full: Car parking was a little tricky (I foolishly underestimated it turning up by car when I live a mile from the start!) and the start was a little congested but only very minor issues.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed it, good mile markers and well marshalled. Nice challenging course with plenty of undulations.
Would definitely do this again. Date of review: January 8, 2012
In short: My first full marathon and really enjyed it. Just a minute or 2 over 4 hours so delighted with first effort. In full: Organisation of the race was excellent. Loads of water stops and Lucozade was great as heat in the second 13 miles was incredible - summer arrived!! Date of review: September 14, 2008
