In short: Brilliant Event In full: My first marathon, and a superb experience. Fabulous marshalls and crowds who go out of their way to make a brilliant atmosphere. The signage at the uni could do with improving as the site is spread out but the organisation was faultless otherwise. Really helpful people everywhere for both runner and supporter.

In short: Onwards and Upwards.... In full: A very well organised, friendly race. First 7K is a slog uphill, and the last 3K is downhill. Views on the way up and down, particularly around the 6-7K were beautiful - almost worth the slog to get up there! Marshals were excellent - supportive particularly to those of us towards the rear of the field, and some friendly locals joined in with the encouragement too. Entry to the Penistone show makes this a great value for money event - pity it chucked it down this year! The T shirt will come in handy for being spotted on winter evening runs...
I'll do this one again for sure. Date of review: September 15, 2008
In short: Enjoyable Sunday Morning Challenge In full: This was my first ever "race" and as such I turned up with some trepidation, but this wasn't warranted. I was scared running past the Coking plant - if every hill had been like that I'd have proper struggled - but it turned out to be a good challenge for this complete novice. Very good organisation, both at the start, energetic and enthusiastic marshalling and at the end made it a very enjoyable Sunday morning despite the cold weather. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and will be back. PB and an all time favourite race - but then it has to be doesn't it, seeing as how it was my first! Date of review: November 18, 2007
