    I was so overwhelmed with the support. I personally ran a rubbish race compared to what I have previously done so feeling a bit down Trying to decide if I should try again next year.

    • fiestec 'This was my 1st marathon a GREAT ATMOSPHERE my Grandchildren loved it. I was doing really well & at mile 13 was on target to finish in just over 4hrs by mile 14 disaster struck. I tore my left calf muscle ( return of an old training injury). I was determined to finish for my charity so l dug deep & ran when l could manage the pain & hobbled when l had to. Got home in 5.20 but now l have a time to beat so l WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR. l do agree with the comment by moon below in some places the crowd were right in the road & caused a bottle neck effect for the runners causing us to slow down & walk - very annoying. These areas can be identified by camera coverage, put more marshalls here & l was 1 of many runners who had stupid spectators run across the road in front of them REALLY STUPID & ANNOYING.' 1 day, 18 hrs ago

    Great day ! Actually it was spoilt . Probably because I started at the back none the less I think I'm not the only one to experience this . I did have to fight my way through the slow runners mainly because my training went better than I expected , I finished 4h17m . But for the life of me on certain parts of the course on more occasions than I want to remember , the spectators had encroached on the road . I'm all for great atmosphere but when I looked behind the spectators there was plenty of space behind them . The result was that all the runners had been forced into a bottle neck , so that the runners were virtually walking through lack of space to run . Greatest Marathon in the world . Hmm maybe you sbe coming back . First Marathon for me . What a load of rubbish .hould review your crowd control . Ruined my run for sure and I wont be coming back

    Did anyone else not get a time recorded? I ran the whole thing but my chip was only picked up once at 5km so I haven't got any splits or an overall time. Just wondering if anyone else is in the same position? Pretty disappointed :-(

    Dear All, well only a few sleeps left. The excitment and nerves are kicking in big time.
    This is my first marathon and I am running for Scope.
    If anyone could spare something and sponsor me, Scope would be very grateful.
