In short: Good challenge, needs better marshalling In full: Good pre - race organisation. Started in time- gap waves which prevented overcrowding. Not enough marshals though - also commented on previously - especially at the end. Another event occurring at same time - Marsden March - made it a bit confusing without a guiding hand !

In short: Restored my faith in organized events! In full: Having participated in a very badly run half marathon the other week,this race restored my love for racing. Well organized, good marshalling and friendly atmosphere. Yes it's a bit tough but all these things keep you going. Plus you run alongside horses and cows (not Badgers). Hear it's getting bigger next year - hope they don't change it too much. Date of review: September 5, 2010
In full: Fairly tough course took me through some pretty places on the IOW. However this did not make up for very poor organization - namely, lack of signposts/marshalls enroute, not enough waterstations. Having made considerable effort to get there, really wondered why I'd bothered.
