I'm thinking of doing this marathon and wondered if anyone had done it before. Have done marathons but so far they've all been road marathons. Is it worth it? What's the terrain like? By the way it's on September 8th and there's also a relay and a half marathon for anyone who's interested.

Thanks PH. Need to ponder on this one as I'm hoping to train for a 33 Ultra in November, so this will be part of the training plan. Got Loch Ness on the 29th September so if I do decide to do this, I'll be taking it very easy and it will be a run/walk situation with the only aim to finish in one piece. Hmmmmmm decisions, decisions.
