In short: Weather aside, Organisation was not great In full: Due to severe weather the Marathon was cancelled and only the half was run. I only knew this as a friendly runner next to me at the start told me. The PA system was useless and could not be heard until crossing the start line. Marshalls out on the course were great although when my sister turned up to support, she asked where the course went and they didn't know! Big thanks to the supporters who braved the weather!

In short: Great atmosphere. Nice T shirt! In full: Great race although I found it tough going. It's quite an undulating course. A PB may be possible but I think I was underprepared being a bit dehydrated and forgeting my energy gels! The technical T-shirt was a nice touch as well as the goody bag with much needed refueling snacks. I'll definately be back again next year! Date of review: September 8, 2011
In short: My first HM and loved it! In full: As this was my first HM, I can't really give an accurate PB potential guide. Weather was great for most of the race but a head wind slowed up the last 3 miles.
Organisation was spot on with a great medal, drinks, fruit bars and bananas being handed out at the finish line.
