In short: LOVED IT GREAT DAY !!!!! looking forward to the next one already ....... In full: Thank you to all the marshals who made this a superb day, without them I would not have got round the course. A special thanks to the lady that helped me up when I tripped on a tree root and then gave me some melon this was much appreciated. Thank you to the family at the bottom of the hill by the stepping stones every time I saw them they gave me a huge boost before tackling the steps again. I did the midsummer munro 2 years ago I looked at my medal and then I looked at the picnic medal, I wanted a marathon medal. Although doing the half marathon is a major achievement I had set myself a goal to do the picnic. To anyone contemplating doing the picnic in 2 years time, do it!! The second half believe it or not I found was less painful than the first. You get into a sort of mish mash of a rhythm, it gets cooler with cloud cover, the hill is not so crowded and you know you have conquered it. On this, the longest day of the year, we were a real band of brothers and sisters trudging up and down Boxhill helping each other along the way. Well done Dr Rob. Great day see you at the Greensands marathon. Will I be doing the picnic again? Yes already looking forward to it.. As long as my little legs can hold out and I am around at the time I will be putting in my calendar as a regular event.
In short: Great see you next year !! In full: Great day very hot. Very well organised the marshals were superb. No matter where you were on the course someone was cheering you on. My wife loves the tee shirt. Great value for money and a great location. Thank you very much see you next year.
In short: Great day still have a smile on my face. In full: Great route I love the running area. First day out in the sunshine this year. I managed to land in the middle of the only big puddle left on the course, kept my footing just. Raised a laugh from behind me. It was good fun after a hard winter. Looking forward to the next Trionium event. Big thank you to the excellent marshals and organisers ..... Date of review: March 18, 2014
In short: Hard, gives you a sense of achievement In full: I would like to thank the marshals, organisers photographers and all the helpers on making a great day. An awful lot of people went into making this event a real success. The wind was horrendous at times, and some of the puddles could easily have swallowed me up. But, the help and encouragement got me through and I feel that any other marathon that I do this year will be a lot easier. See you next year, I need to improve on my time.
Thanks very much on a great day.... Date of review: March 4, 2014
In short: Booked my place for 2014 already !! In full: This was one of my more memorable races of 2013. As I live in Croydon I am a bit biased it gave me a new outlook on the area. What a great traffic free route. It felt more like an adventure run, beware of the bull and the electric fence still bring a smile to my face. As a new race it had teething problems, but it was great value and good fun. I remember really enjoying this run. I have booked my place for 2014 already. Date of review: January 10, 2014
In short: Lots of rain ... Very memorable In full: I had a good run. A lot of the route is along the tow path covered by trees, on a sunny day we would have had a lot of shade, which would have suited me. Instead it was raining, this kept the routes clear of pedestrians which was great improves my time and less obstacles to contend with. When it started bucketing down all I concentrated on was getting to the finish faster which improved my time. Great day..See you next year. Date of review: August 25, 2013
