Did the Marathon in 2022
I really enjoyed this as it was my first marathon. The race organisers were lovely and made me feel really welcome. The only reason I gave one less star is because the original course plan was altered so I had to cross the finish line 3 times before finishing which was psychologically difficult. Nothing the organisers could have done about it though. First marathon in the bag!! Thank you!

It's Grim up North races are always very friendly events. This one was a canal race, so very flat and fast.

I missed the first water stop because it was so small so I really struggled for the last few miles.
