In short: Flawless organisation, beautifull scenery, enthusiastic and friendly marshalls, great day out!! In full: Having previously only done a few larger events, I was a bit nervous doing a smaller event, especially for my first marathon. However, it was superbly organised from start to finish, the marshalls were very helpfull both before and during the race. Thanks to Ines and everyone who was out along the course.
Traffic was never an issue and the course felt very safe.
There were a couple of big hills which were a nice challenge, but I underestimated some of the undulation, which altough subtle, seemed relentless at times!
Support along the course from marshalls, locals and bewilered cattle was very welcome! Date of review: May 7, 2012
In short: Great mix of trail, beach and road running, lots of fun rocky, muddy trails keeping things interesting! In full: Excellent organtisation, well laid out course course with good clear mile marking. Thanks to the marshalls who were really helpfull on a bitterly cold day! Surprising lack of support from local radio for a big event on the sea front. Good atmosphere though and a friendly fun event, looking forward to next year Date of review: February 20, 2012
