This is my third time running the Marathon and maybe the hardest because of the wind and the slippery of some parts of the course, but I truly enjoyed. Will come back next year and hopefully with a better weather.
Very grateful for all the marshals and organisers - my first half marathon and I certainly enjoyed it regardless of the weather.
Brilliantly organised and possibly the chirpiest, friendliest marshalls I have come across in any event, I take my hat off to them - you wouldn't find me out in the wind and rain for 6 odd hours.... oh wait...
Really glad I took part :)
This was my first half marathon and I felt such a wonderful sense of achievement when I finished..... I loved all the running chats I had with complete strangers...I look forward to doing 'The Tough One' again. Thank you all so much.
Sorry but for a variety of reasons we are not permitting dogs to run in this event.
Known as 'The Tough One', with 27 miles of mixed terrain and climbs of 3450 feet.
* '26 miles in 7 minutes'. See the race video by Steve Cousins
