In short: Clearly aimed at the better runner and a poor/average runner will feel out of place In full: If you are a 10 minute mile guy/guyess, this is not the race for you. I finished in 3;25 and could not even get a cup of tea at the end as the catering had packed up and gone. Details not sent by post and on the day, the safety pins were rationed to 2 per person (note the comment about safety pins from the organisers in the context of cancellations/refunds). Water stations roughly every three miles but only water - no juice/sports drinks. Energy gels available but you need to stop and get them as they were not offered with the water.
All in all a disappointment. The course is nice and I could have enjoyed it but getting nothing whatsoever to drink when I finished was a huge disappointment. There wasn't even a Lucozade in the finishers' goodies. Date of review: October 6, 2010
