In short: HOT, HOT, HOT??!! In full: Could do with an earlier start? To avoid running at hottest part of the day? Heard many similar comments from other runners at the start yesterday?! Due to the high temps there was little chance of a pb for myself? Nice race though.. Excellent goody bag with local cider included... Plus, of course the Medal(a must have). Thank you Date of review: June 28, 2010
In short: Unseasonably weather on the day?? Very warm.... In full: Very "Lumpy"? Was a case of going up and downs the Hills from the Canterbury Rugby Club?? Great jogging down the inclines. Unfortunately, you had to go back up the Hill at 11miles.... Date of review: June 8, 2010
In short: Excellent Race. Great value for money In full: Thoroughly enjoyable race? If you can call the marathon distance enjoyment? There were a couple of drawbacks limited water stations on the second half and would have been nice to actually have a starting gun. Rather than having the Race Director shouting go!?
Would definitely go the Marathon distance again in Thanet Date of review: September 7, 2009
In short: Congested at the Start - Finish. But excellent weather and a perfect race In full: The start was crazy owing to the amount of runners waiting to get off??! This is due to last minute nerves and toiletry needs? Also a lot of the fun runners stood in the wrong places. As marked along the side of the start with predicted run time? Unfortunately had to barge past many slower joggers? The hill did go on a bit??!! After 5miles commented when if ever we would start to descend? That came at 7 miles. With the terrific (Loud) support from the crowds of spectators along the route you couldn't help but smile... Great day Date of review: March 17, 2009
In short: Very enjoyable race with a definite pb potential. Excellent In full: Where was the after race goody bag? Only thing that let the organisation down?! But not enough for me never to compete in the race again.... Date of review: February 8, 2009
In short: Undulating and Challenging In full: Bit of an understatement?! Still managed to set a pb and knock 5mins off my previous Half on a much tougher course that is the Maidstone Half. Date of review: December 2, 2008
