In short: Strange Twisty Route In full: Very odd route ran over 2 laps - bit of trail combined with dull housing estates - gates galore combined with unclear route signage very confusing . Date of review: November 14, 2010
In short: Enjoyable In full: Perfect weather for a pleasant run - nice & flat so definite PB potential - used as training run for London and managed to run to my schedule so good confidence builder - the only downer was personally would have prepared a couple of energy drink stations rather than a T Shirt at the end Date of review: March 17, 2009
In short: Summer's Finally arrived - on the wrong day . In full: Great course - bit challenging with a couple of testing climbs . Fantastic scenery , brilliant atmosphere - highly recommended . Did the Northumberland Coastal Run last weekend followed it with this one a week later - We are spoilt in our beautiful Country ! Date of review: July 28, 2008
In short: Needs some Fine Tuning In full: The race itself was great - although as other comments state your not really seeing much of Edinburgh - more like the East Lothian Marathon
The course was quite pleasant despite the head wind for a lot of it ! The marshalls , support en route and the 'stadium finish' were fantastic.
The only real downers were the start area seemed a bit chaotic - the transport service back to Edinburgh was terrible , the queue for the shuttle buses must have been around a half mile long and not moving ! The last thing you want to be doing after a marathon is having to walk 3/4 extra miles to find transport back
In short: Challenging 15 Miler In full: Living in the pennines were used to the hills - but this was a tester . Fantastic marshalling & the lovely people of Naseby on the second loop .Excellent water stations and energy pouches a plenty . Perfect day weather wise warm and little or no wind
In short: Loved It ! In full: Loved every minute of it ! Despite challenging weather a truly memorable day . It seemed like the whole village were there to welcome and feed! ( Fantastic tea & cakes afterwards) - all runners and encouraging all the way .
First time this year - but will be amongst the first races booked every year in future ! Date of review: March 9, 2008
