Loved it!

The atmosphere, spectators , the course, everything was great. The only thing I did not like was that course (in the first lap) was so crowded that I couldn't run at my normal pace and had to slow down. I also got elbowed a few times as I was running past people (due to it being crowded, not because people were ruthless about being overtaken :P)

Good Race but...

Really enjoyed the race and the support from spectators was both amazing and moving.

I appreciate there is a confined space for the Runners Village, but it wasn’t a great experience. Entrances need martialling sontjere is flow for people going in and people going out. Also, it may be better to only allow runners in the runners village. Move the meeting points outside the village - they were useless given they were sat in the middle of the queues for baggage reclaim.

A good event and a good experience on the course.

Great fun, great run, well organised

This was my biggest race to date. Everything was fab, but the entrances to the runners village meant there was a huge amount of congestion so I seriously underestimated the amount of time needed to get through.
The early part of the course was marked with traffic cones, and as the course was very congested at this point it was tricky to run. I saw a lady trip over one of the cones and fall over, thankfully she was ok when I stopped to help her.
The marshals were great and the spectators were absolutely fantastic, huge kudos to them. Great goody bag after. I appreciate the tips are recycled but it would be good to have an option to not have a post run T-shirt. Can’t wait to run it next year!
