The positives are that the course really is flat and the event is perfectly timed for anyone doing a Spring marathon. There are plenty of refuelling stations and the volunteers and marshals are all helpful and friendly. The start/finish is at a nice social club.The negatives are that the route out across the marsh on days like today - windy and cold - is pretty brutal and, over 20 miles, the runners get very strung out. It can be a very lonely experience for those long stretches when there is, understandably, no support.

Mostly flat course is offset by some pretty strong head winds. If the wind drops, it's perfect for a PB. Well organised and friendly atmosphere with help from the 1st Lydd Scouts.

It is as pancake flat as described but exposed. This year there was a strong northerly wind which made it harder and colder. Not enough portaloos this year, we started 10 minutes late as a result.

Really friendly event. Amazing volunteers and staff. Flat as a pancake course, great for PBs. Be prepared for wind, and running solo for parts of the race, as it's quite exposed in places and no crowds. Would recommend it as a great training race for spring marathons for sure!

Let’s Do This!! My first event back after 2 years out with a big injury. A really wellorganised event from the time of entering to receiving post race info by email. Course was indeed flat & on this occasion the winds (infamous I think in this part of the county) whipped around the course but never behind us! Made it more of a challenge & i’m sure burnt more calories 😂

From reading the reviews from last year, it seems that many people got stuck in a small bottleneck just after the start - are there any planned changes for this year to prevent a reoccurrence?
