In short: Stunning scenery, great organisation and a friendly feel In full: A well organised race run with the expertise of big city major marathons with out the crowds and hassle. A friendly feel ideal for beginners with the highlight being the stunning surroundings on a fast undulating course. Plenty of fuel stations, great medal, t shirt and after race food. The highlight was seeing some truly inspirational people pushing their body and mind to the limit, well done Loch Ness for a cracking event. Date of review: September 29, 2013
In short: Great organisation and great prizes In full: This is the second year of running this event which I would do again. It is steep for a 10k but you do get a lot of goodies for it and it has the feel of a big event, the course also measured quite a bit over. The organisation is great, plenty of loo's and great give always, goodie bags and prizes. Lovely location if the weather is good its worth spending the day there. Date of review: May 19, 2013
In short: Pleasant off road race In full: Well organised, lovely scenery and friendly atmosphere. Undulating but a pretty quick course, no major hills at all. Still a bit costly for a 10k and everyone I spoke to said their chip timing was wrong by a fair bit including mine. However I would do the race again. Date of review: November 6, 2011
In short: A half worth doing next year In full: The Isle of Axholme half marathon starts in the beautiful village of Epworth and takes in the local countryside. Support along the way in the villages which you pass through and friendly atmosphere. Professionally organised by Meters to Miles and a great running shop worth visiting for some expert running advise. PB potential on a calm day. Date of review: September 11, 2011
In short: Flat fast course in a beautiful city with loads of good people to cheer you on In full: Positives - PB potential the cobbles are no big deal only a few 100 meters, great support all around the course, great medal (if you are into that kind of thing) Negatives - Many people in the sub 40 section who shouldn't have been slowing fast runners up suggest proof of time to get into this section if they are looking at increasing the entry size next year, parking issues and heavy traffic, late start. Overall great race and would do it again : )
In short: A great pre London race In full: One to look at if you have not races Ashby 20, good preparation for London on an undulating course (the hills are not that bad). Great drink stations with sponges, gells, sweats and lovely volunteers who manned them - Thank you. Over all a well organised event.
