In short: would definately do it again In full: second time of completing and throughly enjoyed it Marshals were very good especially the guy from the simpsons comic shop doing the bags-nice goodie bag just wished the kids didnt pinch my rock-good course-loved the sea road even if it was blowing a gail-dont get to run along the sea much in Luton!

In short: loved it In full: best Â£5 ever spent-I could go on about the slippery tow path or the hills or the fact that the water stations were all at the top of hills and the best I could do was throw the cup at my face like a bad M&W sketch but that would be wrong. Great race-well organised and cakes/coffee at the end-excellent training run-bring on Paris in 2 weeks Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: my legs are screaming this morning but Im ignoring them-that was the amazing thing I have ever done In full: the supporters on the course are amazing-there was a wall of sound under one tunnel (docklands I think)which made me quite emotional.All the music and bands were great-I was running with the drummer guy who jumped out of the race at 5m to play the bass drum-brilliant-I wanted to stay and listen but I had a PB to break-didnt do the 4 hrs but beat the PB by 8 mins in 4.10! Well done to all the marshalls-that was fantastic-the little kids doing the high fives-brilliant but the finish line was very welcoming. Date of review: April 27, 2009
In short: the best 20mile training run you will ever do In full: ok so it had its ups and downs (the ups were steep)and they had polystrene cups at the water stations but the marshalls the weather and the organisation was 2nd to none.Wish they gave a medal though as my other half stole my nice hoodie Date of review: April 5, 2009
In short: Well done Leicester In full: ok so the course had some dull bits but it also had some lovely areas.Yes the car parks were full but there was off road parking.It had some biggish hills but it was mostly level.Got a medal (not engraved)but didnt get the advertised t-shirt(hooray) Got a PB by 17mins so I dont care aint nothing going to spoil my day!!!!!!!!
In short: excellent race-must check the description for undulating In full: First marathon so didnt know what to expect. Very well organised-nice bag at the end-two questions though; 1.where are the people who shouted "you going down west ham" now eh? 2.The lady in the field at the end with her little daughter after 4 1/2 hours in the pouring rain shouting encouragment.Will her daughter ever forgive her?
