The finish was confusing as the instructions from the marshal at the top of the hill were different to the actual finish. Entry information stated that blue buffs would be given out to competitors, if there were any none were given to me or my friends.

Fantastic marathon. Lovely course although busy due to other people / events going on at Temple Newsham.Very well marked, and the course Marshall’s were brilliant. Goodie bags a little disappointing if you don’t drink beer.
