Emily Hannon reports about her experience at the Giants Head Marathon - Saturday, June 29, 2013
“No matter what your Garmin says - the Finish line will be there when it's there!”
I arrived in Dorset the day before the race to camp on the site provided by the organisers and it everything that you need: portaloos, plenty of water and a huge field! The race is pretty small with roughly 200 marathoners on the start line and 100 10km runners joining later on. Directions to the village and start were really clear and despite my sat nav trying the best to send me into Yeovil I arrived safely and was promptly silenced by a hill coming off the main road down into Sydling. Camping meant that we could easily take our time in the morning and having a 'secret' set of loos meant that we didn't wait at all!
