  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    The organisation was first class, the volunteers at the water stations were amazing with plenty of encouragement and goodies to keep you going and the little helpers at the bag reclaim so good. Only downside is the course is 26 miles of open wilderness and only one village on route.
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    Fantastic marshals, brilliant water stations, amazing support on bikes keeping us safe but so lonely on the windy country lanes. Brilliantly organized though
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Loved it completely. Organisation was first class. From signing up for thee vent to receiving medal and goody bag (IMO the contents of the bag were exactly what they should be after a long run). Location was easy to get to off main roads. Ample parking, organisers were friendly, nice supportive crowds. I acknowledge there were times when you would not see many people for periods of time, but I knew that before signing up. For me and probably lots of others the appeal is how flat the route is - and it really is. I achieved a PB for a half marathon 14/4/19 and was five minutes quicker than Cambridge half (also flat). Plenty of water stations with lots of people handing out bottles. Lovely people at the end. Would def do again. If you want to get your head down, aim for a PB you should do this :)
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A nice, well organised, friendly event. They have a marathon, half marathon and a fun run. Had 615 doing the full marathon which set off ten minutes before the 564 doing the half. The two routes were shared for the first five or so miles so the front runners in the half caught up with the tail of the marathon, but it wasn't a problem as the runners were well spread out. A nice flat course along country roads so definite PB potential - just need to turn the wind off! Lots of water stations and friendly marshalls providing encouragement. Had a fairly strong headwind on the way out and a tailwind to see us home. Easy online entry, not too expensive (18 for affiliated runners) and I got my number and race day instructions in the post a week before the start. Had a very good Facebook page with event info and links to results and photos after the event. Results were online on the day. Nice t-shirt, medal and goodie bag - though it would have been good to have a separate medal and t-shirt for each event rather than just Boston Marathon ones. Some great free photos from local photographers all round the course were a very nice bonus. I really enjoyed it and hope to do it again.
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    Great marathon water stations every 2 miles or so with sports top bottles, great Marshall's, water stations, organisation, cheap entry, medal t shirt, goody bag ets all for less than 30! Flat and fast course on quiet country lanes. This will grow fast as everyone rates it so highly!
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    Great marathon everyone who was involved in organising it did a brilliant job you must come and do either the full or half and experience it for yourself.
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    A well organised marathon. Ideal for a PB as it so flat. Having been use to training with hills(I live in the North East of Scotland) you forget how harder it is running on the flat..But 20mins off my PB I cannot complain. A brilliant day all round
  • Did the Fun Run in 2019

    Course needed more marshals. Children shouldnt be expected to be crossing roads alone in an organised race. The turn off onto the fun run diversion also needed better signage/direction from the marshals as lots went past it. Compared to last year didnt like the route at all!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great half marathon- everyone is so friendly and supportive. The course is mostly rural on quiet roads and extremely flat, which is great for pb's, but even a little wind can feel like a gale! This was my second year here and I'll definitely be back again.
