Gold winner

This event has been awarded a Gold athlete-rated badge for consistently high reviews.


My first marathon and I loved it. That was down to just how well organised it was. Marshall support was first class, as were drink stations. Crowd support was so much better than I ever thought it would be. Quite honestly I have nothing but praise for this event and would highly recommend it to others. Thank for making my experience so memorable. Sophie W

Absolutely love this event. I have now ran it 5 times so have earnt my legend medal yeah. The Marshalls are awesome as always as well as the crowds. It feels like a home race for me. And hope to keep doing it as long as I can. I was lucky to get picked to be an Ambassador for the race this year and have loved it. It has great scenery also and they point out places of interest along the route. Becci S
