A fantastic route with beautiful scenery along the way. The marshals did a good job and the local people gave words of friendly encouragement along the way. The only negative I have is that the runners needed to go to the finish line before the race to collect the number and tab. Perhaps these could have been at the start line or posted out.

Had a great run on s fast course. Only disappointments where:- lack of bins a distance after feed stations and no energy held at feed stations which messed up my plan. Also paper cups next time?

The only additional change i'd like to see would be to add run markers showing how many miles have been completed so far, so runners have a clearer indication of how far they are into the course.

Great race, only thing I wasn't to keen on was collection of numbers. We had to collect the day before due to the collection point for numbers being at the finish line. On a plus lovely route fairly flat, great atmosphere. I will be using the route for some of my marathon training and signing up for this one again.
