Highland Perthshire Marathon Feedback
Listed below is just some of the fantastic feedback the Highland Perthshire Marathon has had:
“Great day on Saturday - thanks to all involved in organising, marshalling, catering - everything! Really enjoyed it. See you next year!”
“We’re just home from holiday and have just opened the medals for the Highland Perthshire Marathon (cycle). I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the event, and the ceilidh in the evening finished off the weekend perfectly! Thanks to all who were involved in the organisation,”
“I want to share my delight at receiving a medal for being 3rd vet female for the marathon. It was a lovely surprise and certainly well received.
Many thanks to yourself and your team for sending this medal and for putting on such a fantastic event! My husband and I loved it. Great course (even with THAT hill coming out of the Estate) and very well marshalled.”
“Many thanks for putting on and organising Highland Perthshire Marathon & Half-Marathon. This was my first race in over 25 years,having reached my 60th birthday in June. My son decided I needed to celebrate like he old days. Around 15 of us had a great day and I was delighted with the stewarding throughout the 13 mile I ran. The organisation at start and particularly the finish was excellent. I was so glad of the tea and biscuits at the end. Thanks again to everyone who made the day a huge success for all of us who participated.”
“Thank you for all the work everyone put in to making Saturday such a success again! My son, husband and I enjoyed taking part again. I was 'chuffed' to get 3rd place in the ladies old fogeys age group (even if there were only 3 of us in the group...) and look forward to receiving the memento of this when you have a chance to send it - something to show my grandchildren!”
“Just a quick email to thank you for your hard work before, during, and after the marathon!”
“A special "thank you!" to the lovely ladies at the refreshments stall after the finish, just what I needed after such a tough run! Well done, and see you next year!”
“I completed the half marathon yesterday, and should like to thank each of you for what I feel was the best of 17 different ‘runs’ I have completed over 20 years or more, (including the London Marathon, Great North Run, Edinburgh and Glasgow runs). I enjoy running on my own and am never disappointed in being near the back....my aim is to finish and as mentioned, enjoy the day, and the friendly, informal run you organise made for a most enjoyable day.”
"What a fantastic cycle, the miles just disappeared as I enjoyed the views around the course"
"What a great event, I ran a half marathon then cycled around the route! It's the first time ever that the kids have been able to come and watch me run and cycle. We'll be back next year 2017 as the event will include a cycle sportive for kids 13 years and above so the whole family will be taking part."
"This must be one of the best organised and Friendly events in Scotland. What a weekend, from the moment we arrived through to the celeidh in the evening then free camping! I think it's the first time the kids have asked if they could go back to an event!"
"The route through the grounds of Taymouth Castle is fantastic, what a backdrop!"
"I have taken part in the Caledonian Etape for a number of years and my long suffering family come along to support me. Now HPM starting 2017 will include a cycling sportive that they can actually join in and enjoy the fantastic scenery that Highland Perthshire has to offer. Well done to the Rotary Club."
