In short: Why cancel on the day!? In full: I found out 5 minutes before the start that the full marathon had been cancelled due to the adverse weather. Yes, it was cold and raining, but we all knew that before turning up at the start line! We were prepared and in honesty it was not that bad! Certainly nowhere near Snowdon 2011 conditions and that was a allowed to go ahead (and was not that bad once you got going).
Marshalls were OK, although some were making inane comments like 'I'm glad I'm not running' and 'I'd rather be watching the Tele'.
Medal was cheap as chips - not even got a date on it! Date of review: April 29, 2012
In short: A fairly unique HM In full: A well organised event! My only gripe is that it is not HM distance being 0.2 miles too long according to my GPS. This prevented a PB despite the bridges! I don't see why on a linear route that the start/finish could not be adjusted to give 13.1 miles exactly!?
Loved the long tunnel! I'll do it again just for this! Date of review: July 3, 2011
In short: An excellent event! In full: An excellent event. Good atmosphere. No goodie! Selling t-shirts... who has £15 on them at the end of a marathon?? Said you can order on line... any idea where?? Date of review: May 9, 2011
