My first trail marathon - I loved it! (about: 2010)|
P. A. from Shelby Township MI USA (6/29/10)
11-50 previous marathons
| 1 South Downs Marathon
I enjoyed the early start; I was able to start right on the start line. The hills were long and steep, but I walked up them to save my legs. (I could not have run up them even if I had wanted too.) Receiving bottled water at the aid stations was a great plus!
The views of the countryside and the valleys from the top of the downs were unbelievable!
This was a challenging marathon for me, but I loved every minute of it.
The organizers did a fantastic job. if I were to be back in England again when this marathon is taking place, I would sign up in a heartbeat.
Thanks for making my first trail marathon so enjoyable.
