In short: My first marathon! In full: Not a good start. Website suggested parking at nearby industrial estate which turned out to be coned off! Apart from that I had a brilliant day. The organisation was great & support fantastic. It was my first marathon & the finish in the stadium was the icing on the cake. Date of review: May 7, 2013
In full: Great race, tough in places with a couple of good long hills. Well organised & enthusiastic marshals. Only gripe was only medium tech t shirt left when I plodded in at 2:07, not great for a 6f 4" fella. Date of review: September 30, 2012
In full: I didn't run it due to injury 2 months ago. No chance of getting ANY money back. The info says my money will have been spent up front but the papers claim the organisers have raised 1 million for charity!
Could defer for £5 6 weeks before race day.
Then the cheek of asking for a further £5 to post race pack out (no mention of this in origional blurb)
Wouldn't have anything to do with this incompetant lot if they paid me to enter it!!!!!
In full: Good race. Friendly marshals & well organised.
Couple of minor niggles. Big queue to collect timing chip meaning a rush to do other things such as book baggage in, toilet etc. Please post in future!!! Also ran out of xl cagoules despite specifying on entry form months ago that I wanted this size... Date of review: December 11, 2011
In short: Mildly challenging with a good hill at the start & hillyish section from mile 9 to 12. Lovely scenery through Clumber Park & well organised. Def do again & achieved p.b! Date of review: November 4, 2010
In short: My first time half, great atmosphere & very well organised with lots of support from marshals & spectators alike. Found course hilly in places & unfortunately was running on empty after 10 miles (still completed in 207:50) Date of review: September 13, 2010
