A very beautiful, scenic, (hilly) rural marathon (about: 2005)|

I really enjoyed this rural marathon. The weather was fantastic to match the nice and friendly people. It is a very small marathon, i.e. small in total number of runners, esp. the full distance, but big in spirit and big in the hearts of the organizers. The organizers did a great job. Good aid stations, well marked course. The hilly terrain is what makes it a wonderful and inspiring marathon. It's not all in the time, but more in the fun of it and finishing it. I really enjoyed the rural run, where you could look at the hills, the fields were inspiring as well. The sunflowers and the hay bails on the fields make it pretty as well. I certainly would like to be back again. I have run 34 marathons and 8 ultras, mostly in Europe, and this one reminds me of some of the rural ones I have run in France and Switzerland and Germany. The aid stations had power gels which was great. Very friendly people. I will invite my other running friends next year. Thanks Treherne runners and organizers and the Chamber of Commerce for doing a great job. My favorite quote is, 'Why would anyone live on this earth and not run on it?' That goes for TREHERNE.
