In short: 1st half scenic and interesting, second half flat and boring In full: Would recommend people to do the first half as a relatively challenging half marathon.
If you want to do a full marathon turn around and re run what you have just done as the second half through field after field after field is probably the most boring and uninspiring run I have ever done - nothing but hedges, gates and stiles!! Definitely not "one of the most scenice marathons" in the UK!!
In short: Very wet and muddy, pity it wasn't raining though!! In full: Second year doing this and all I can say is well done!! This was well organised with a much appreciated goody bag. I enjoyed the stretches of water that was mixed with something suspiciously smelly!! Definitely up for doing it again next year, though hopefully it will be raining or snowing next time!!
