Lots of hills (about: 2007)|
R. M. from Pembroke, NH (11/21/07)
3 previous marathons
| 1 Manchester City Marathon
I thought it was a very well organized event and I loved the shirt. I was disappointed that the medal didn't distinguish full from half, but at least I know I did it. I live just outside of Manchester and never realized how many hills there are! The second half was a little sparse spectator-wise, when you could use it the most (especially after watching the half marathons turn left to the finish). I thought the traffic control at the intersections was great and the aid stations were very well staffed. I didn't have any prior experience with a timing chip but it sure seemed awkward and was tough to find a comfortable spot. Overall, though, great job!
