In short: Well organised, interesting and challenging course, fantastic support In full: This was my first Marathon so can't compare it to anything, but now the pains have subsided I want to do it again!
The communication (in the forums, in the race guide, via the office) was first class and I can't fault the organisation of direction and tips for getting to and from the event were perfect. The course was really good, I agree with others who said the Wirral side was easier and the Liverpool side much tougher and the unique couple of miles in between (the tunnel) was very special. The entertainment and support all around the course was a real plus.
Lastly, the finishers T-shirt and medal were really high quality, as if it didn't feel good value already.
