In short: Wow ... still buzzing from yesterday In full: I wanted to thank and congratulate everyone who was involved in putting on the MK marathon yesterday.
Every aspect of the day was superb. The Pre race arrangements, the start, marshalling, support and drinks on the route, finish, meeting area and car parking were all first class. This was the best running event I have ever taken part in, and really importantly the best my family have ever spectated at.
They loved taking part in the superhero fun run when I was out on the course.
You've done MK proud.
I'll be back next year. Date of review: May 6, 2014
In short: The best marathon I've ever done! In full: Excellent facilities at the start Really enjoyed the varied course with lots to look at Superb marshalling and organisation Fantastic spectator support Lots of drinks stops + gels Loved the stadium finish - goose bumps! Quality goody bag and finishers t shirt This event is sure to go in popularity Loved it!
In short: Good race but total shambles at the finish In full: I went to Edinburgh for a long w/end to take part in this half marathon.
The course was okay but the weather was very unkind with v. strong wind and rain.
The finish was a disaster... you were given little packets of stuff, which you had to try and hold on to with cold hands. The baggage was a disaster with massive queues and I was shaking madly! It took quite a while for them to bring out space blankets and there was no shelter at all.
A bit better leadership and responsivness after the finish would have been useful! Date of review: April 16, 2013
In short: Fantastic trail race with excellent views In full: What a fantastic event, loved every minute of it. Very well organised and the cakes were a great touch. Well done Dirt Running ... See you at the Dirt Half in November! Date of review: September 24, 2012
In short: Excellent inagural event In full: I can't understand moaners who say 'bad organisation, but great marshals and water stops' ... they were organised by the organisers! I thought it was very well organised and had no issues at all. The stadium was great for pre-race cover and for changing afterwards, but please have a finish arch next time.
Goody bag good, although I just wanted the medal! I've only ever been given a space blanket once and don't rate them.
I was moved to the overflow car park in Bond Avenue and you could see the stadium and it was a very short walk.
A great first event held in very difficult conditions. All the negatives are due to the weather and couldn't be helped.
Give yourselves a pat on the back, you did MK proud. I'll be back next year. Date of review: May 3, 2012
