In short: Breathtaking scenery , tough but aren't all the best trail races ? In full: Have to admit I was really excited about competing in this marathon . Not for the fact of getting a fast time but for the challenge and the breathtaking route that it promised.
It certainly lived up to it's name in both departments without a doubt the hardest race I have competed in but the scenery made up for all of that if your after a fast time then this one is not for you . If it's a challenge coupled with a fantastic route then this one is up there with the best in my opinion .
As for feedback on what could be improved well it would have been better to not double up in places but I realise that this was out of the control of the organisers due to the weather . Some more marshals and a few more mile markers especially towards the end would have been good .
All in all though a great event well done to everyone involved I look forward to competing again next year . I may have to enter just to get that goodie bag again that was a real treat .
If you love the Snowdonia Marathon then you will love this one . Date of review: June 24, 2012
