Did the race in 2019
Really supportive volunteers around the course. The course itself was very scenic along the promenade. Loads of spectators and they were very vocal. Excellent organisation at the start, plenty of loos all free. Brilliant t shirt and medal for all finishers, better than the big marathons as you have room to run. Done London and you can barely move so won't do again, will stick to the smaller better run marathons like Blackpool with Fylde Coast Runners.
