Race numbers and your timing chip will be given out on the morning of the race. Please allow enough time to collect these from Race Registration.

My first marathon. The event was very well-organised and well marshalled. Lovely views. I can't think of anything negative to say other than the pain in my legs at the end!
A lovely run in beautiful surroundings. There were some great Marshall’s on the course and it was really welll organised. Top event, would recommend. Oh, and a great medal too!
