A great event, only my second marathon and much more enjoyable than my 1st thats for sure. Race was run on Bank holiday monday although I beleve this has changed for 2019. Wasa great way to explore the city and saw many areas that I would otherwise have missed visiting the city for the first time as I was. The course was very hilly, and very tough not that I really noticed this until my legs began to fail me after 20-22 miles. There was a relay element to the marthon which made for quite a bit of movement of places which I actually enjoyed as it spurned me on.
