In short: Very promising debut In full: I enjoyed this run. Yes the early scenery was a bit drab and waiting for ths start was not much fun. If the race does grow more work will need to be done to the start but I will be back.
I found the enthusiastic support by marshalls and spectators was spot on. I thought the course was fine and liked running through the wood was a nice change to what I thought was a road run.
I was a bit confused that the marshalls I asked could not give directions for where the shuttle buses were leaving from. The buses were good through. Date of review: March 15, 2010
In short: Awesome experience again In full: Second time round and will be back next year. Hard work in the sun but well, well worth it, even if my time was slower than I hoped for. The locals are fantastic with the biscuits, ice pops and hose pipes. The effect of somebody you don't know clapping and cheering your name is amazing.
Bit suprised to read about goody bag issues. Not the reason I run in this event, after the atmosphere as long as I get the medal I do not care. Date of review: September 21, 2009
