"Just wanted to thank you once again for letting me take part in yesterday’s marathon at the last minute. Well done on organising a great run - I thoroughly enjoyed it. The marshals were great and the route easy to follow which is a huge bonus for me as I have ABSOLUTELY no sense of direction whatsoever. "
