Thank you for the review BanjiBoyW, much appreciated
Glad you enjoyed the race too way2slow. If you are happy to leave a race review through the link mentioned above, it will hopefully help us attract more runners in the future. We would be very happy to receive any help next year, and hope to see you at the Stour Valley marathon.

Hi CheesyRider. Watch out for the battery life of your phone if you are using ViewRanger on the day. It will be fine if you turn off all other data etc. and only use the app and GPS when you really need it...otherwise it will drain your battery in around 9 hours.
If you don't get an answer here, do feel free to post on our Facebook community site.
As you know, the success of any race is heavily dependent upon having a team of enthusiastic volunteers. At this point in time, with just under 60 days to go, I’m still looking for a few more helpers. As such, if anyone is able to spare some time on that date, please do let me know.
Full details for the race and volunteering details can be found through the following link:
There are a variety of roles available, ranging from driving a people carrier / minivan, helping at a checkpoint, to marking the route or sweeping, depending on how active you’d like to make your day out.
Many of the checkpoints and the finish line are all adjacent to country pubs, so it’s a great way to see some of the Suffolk / Essex countryside. The route passes through many beautiful villages, in addition to the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where the famous artist John Constable painted many of his best known landscapes.
Also, as we are holding the race on a Saturday, there are good train and bus services running.
Many thanks in advance and I hope some of you can join me in the countryside on the 16th August. It should be a great day, whether you are running or helping out!
