Well organised event with plenty of feed stations.  I jogged round this one and really enjoyed it.  The last 6.2 miles were much tougher than I expected with some difficult terrain and climbs.  Plenty of food and drink available at the end and a party atmosphere.

My only grumble is that the half and full marathoners got identical T shirts.  The medals were generic things that didn't even mention what the race was. Given how expensive this race is I think the organiser should put his hand in his pocket and provide marathon runners and half marathon runners with T shirts specific to their race. 

A good training run for the UT55 ultramarathon.
