In short: First marathon and couldn't imagine a better introduction. In full: The reviews from previous years tempted me to do this run and I am delighted to say it lived up to expectations. The organisation was first class from start to finish. The availability of water, isotonic drink and gels at such regular intervals made fuelling easy and I didn't need to use my own gels etc.
The support from the spectators was awesome and the goodwill from the people of Chester and surrounding villagers was brillint, particularly as their roads had been shut. They provided timely encouragement that made this run a pleasure. Finally a massive thanks to the Marshalls around the course who were fantastic and to Andy & Chris for making my first marathon so memorable. Date of review: October 10, 2012
