In short: Great community race In full: Brilliant scenic route. T shirt is excellent, as is the medal....such good value for money. Marshalls were fab, so smiley & encouraging. The only down side was leaving the car park, although think that's sorted for next year, and could possibly do with a few more ladies loos at the start! Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: Overall a fantastic Marathon!! In full: Chester Marathon is very well organised and overall a lovely event. I was really impressed with the ample refreshments and drinks throughout the course. The run certainly wasn't flat although overall wasn't particularly hilly + generally flat. I managed to get a PB by a minute which I was really.pleased with + put down to the fact I was very well hydrated. Am thinking of coming back next year to do the Metric Marathon in training for The Birmingham Marathon..I would certainly recommend it. Thank you to all the organisers, Marshall, Volunteers and cheered on!! Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: Wow.....I loved this!!! In full: This was my first marathon and I can't wait to do it again next year.
The scenery was brilliant, from running past the Minster with the bells tolling away, to glorious countryside. The crowds were also out in force along the route and were both encouraging and generous, handing out sweets, cakes, fruit and extra gels.
Organisation and the village centre were superbly ran. I cannot rate this a vent highly enough. Only minor point, one mentioned by others, is a couple more gel stations would be appreciated. Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: PB every time in the beautiful Peak District In full: I firmly believe that there are fairies and magical creatures all along the Tissington Trail Half Marathon that have helped me to achieve a PB every year I do it, in beautiful autumnal weather served up in beautiful countryside. This is a frill-free event with fantastic organisation and awesome jaffa cakes! I only have one teeny weeny gripe - and that's about groups of runners insisting on running side by side on what at times can be a narrow path. But even that pales in comparison to how uplifting it feels after covering 13.1 miles in glorious countryside. A perfect first half for anyone wanting to try the distance for the first time too. Already in again for the fourth year on the trot. Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: Beautiful course, cracking medal! In full: A glorious flat-downhill course, great for speed, lovely scenery. Some of the path can be a bit narrow, so try and position yourself appropriately at the start. Could have done with a few more portaloos, but the race didn't start until everyone was ready, just showing how much of a runner friendly race it was. I would definitely recommend it, but be quick, it sells out fast! Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: My first 10km race and I was absolutely amazed how organized everything was. From car parking to finish everything was so nicely marked out. I really enjoyed it. In full: The route was lovely, scenic, pretty and definately a winner with me. Made me want to take part it lots more 10km races, I thoroughly enjoyed the event. Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: Faultless In full: If you want to do a half that's poorly organised, expensive, continually uphill with no crowd support then don't do this one next year. I've raced more than 50 times over 5k,10k, half and full marathon and London aside this was the best race I've ever had the pleasure of taking part in. Firstly it's a lovely place to run around the streets and country roads around Salisbury. The route is pancake flat (maybe one very slight incline but not a hill, coming back into the town) and perfect for anyone beginner or pro chasing a PB. For your £27/£29 you get the best medal ever which doubles up as a fridge magnet/beer bottle opener and a great tech t shirt. The race ends under the shadows of the salibury cathedral. I estimated about 1000 people took part yesterday, next year this will double without fail, book early I know I will. Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: A fun race in gorgeous scenery In full: I really loved this. In addition to the race there were stalls selling drinks etc, a little dog show, and a display by a Hearing dog for the deaf. There were plenty of really friendly marshals, the run itself was great fun and the scenery breathtaking. Not a course for the faint-hearted but immensely enjoyable. Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: There's a good reason why I enter this race every year. Brilliant! In full: What a fabulous Half Marathon! Great organisation and festival atmosphere. Start / finish area is great and the crowd are brilliant through glorious Hampshire countryside! See you again next year! Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: Just run the way races should be! Another Trionium success. Thank you Rob! In full: Love the warm welcome from organisers and fellow runners. Love the national anthem at the beginning. Love the simplicity, the scenery, the challenge, the medal, the goodies, the t-shirt, the mug and especially the complimentary fried breakfast. Just a shame its the last one. But dont dispair the Leith Half is the same course as the Greensands Half! See you in March! Date of review: October 10, 2016
In short: 13.1 miles of beauty and the scenery made the race go quickly. Loved it! In full: This was my first Tissington half marathon and won't be my last. The whole experience from start to finish was excellent and the views were to die for. It made running fun and enjoyable and the time seemed to go quicker that I thought. Had a cracking weekend.
