Review of Shakespeare Marathon 2019.
The registration was easy, and the start/finish line was well organised. The cost was very good for a marathon, but does not include the tech t-shirt which you can purchase separately.
The course starts in the town centre, beside the Tudor style houses with all the runners squeezed between these old fashioned buildings, which is great for atmosphere! The course then takes you a little bit through the town (I wish this was more), before heading into the countryside. The country views are very nice.
The course is NOT flat, it is quite undulating, if not hilly! You repeat the same circular route twice so at least you know what is coming on the second lap!
The course finishes on a playing fields, which is walking distance to the butterfly house, main canal and globe theatre (in centre of town), so that’s very handy.
Overall the course has a good feel, and I’d do it again.
