In short: excellent, challenging but not too challenging In full: this was my second time and my only complaints were there could have been more toilets, and the drinks on course was from cups, so difficult to drink and run at the same time, bottles would be preferable. On the plus side, lovely hoodie, fantastic marshalls, so encouraging. I smashed 10 mins off my last time so very happy.
In answer to Paulrunner, the different colour hoodies are from other years, grey for 2010, navy for 2009 Date of review: March 27, 2011
In short: distance makes a change from 10k or half marathon In full: well organised race and nice t shirt, shame about the head wind for most of the second half of the course this year but thats october in the fens! Many thanks to the fenland runner who kept me going for the last 2 miles when i wanted to slow down, will be back next year to better my time Date of review: October 26, 2009
In short: excellent way to spend a day In full: great run although this year the goody bag was not as generous runners got a great rucksack last year, and the car parking was not free as had been in previous years, also there could have been a few more toilets seemed less than last year, great crowds for lots of the run though and weather was perfect for this fast flat course Date of review: October 12, 2009
In short: great day had In full: being my first marathon i was chuffed to get under 4 hours, the second lap was tough at times as i was on my own for quite a while after the split and the hill was tough second time around but plenty of water stations and good marshalls kept me going, and how nice to see so many toilets for runners around the course. a goodie bag would have been nice at the finish too!
