In short: Superb effort from the course marshals but event was hampered by poor organisiation. In full: This was a really tough race this year due to the weather. The marshelling on course was superb. It was wet, wind and very cold, and every marshal had a smile and friendly word to say. The decision to cancel the full marathon was correct but could have been made earlier. I was however really dissapointed that they ran out of medals, this was due to all runners receiving a half medal. So the only medals left were those displaying the marathon lanyard. The organisers should have arranged for those who would have been running the full marathon to receive this medal so that there were enough half medals to be handed out at the end. You shouldn't have to ask! Again like others have said, no t-shirt or goody bag.
