In short: Yes the toilets!! In full: Overall it was well organised and it would be difficult to fault the marshals and police for making the actual race run well.
However three things let it down, 1) those toilets - not for the faint hearted. 2) the first water station was just as you came around a sharp corner with, as far as I could see no notice of it - was there really only one table there? I wasn't sure as I was on the wrong side of the road and so missed it. I was though glad of the second water station, for this one I luckily was on the right side of the road. 3) the kilometre markers - one or two were nowhere near correct. Date of review: April 3, 2005
In short: Good day thoroughly enjoyed In full: Good half, enjoyed the lanes, we did not need full road closures. More toilets at start needed. It may be mainly flat but it still hurt in all the right places. Date of review: April 3, 2005
In short: Really friendly marshalls but not a very inspiring course In full: Marshalls were absolulty fantastic - kept cheering me on and clearly directed the way and the traffic. Not a very nice route though, quite a lot of running along busy roads. Date of review: April 3, 2005
In short: second time and- it gets better In full: This race is a must for all distance runners - everyone seems to be having a great time runners /pa announcers / marshalls . managed to cut my time since last year by 16 mins - weather was up to 20 degrees and water stations did a superb job.entries for race is getting bigger and bigger will put my entry for next year as soon as possible.

In short: Well organised race although a bit hot but still enjoyable. In full: A well organised race although a little hot and a few more toilets would have been helpful! Good day out though, would do it again especially as it's local and a nice rural setting. Date of review: April 3, 2005
In short: Well organised, professional race. Congratulations to the organisers. In full: This is the second time I have run this race and I can say that the value for money was good. The organisation of the race was first class, with pleanty of water stations and mile markers. There was also a good selection of trophies. Also the people in the kitchen did a great job, since praise is sometimes missed off to those people. It was refreshing to see that the prices for refreshments was at a sensible price as well.
Overall a thoroughly, well organised race and I will be doing it again. Well done to the organisers. Date of review: April 3, 2005

In short: Great fun and a great sceney. In full: This is the second Guernsey half marathon I have done (visiting from London each time with the family) and it was great on both occaisions. Marshalling good and friendly. Date of review: April 3, 2005
In short: It was my first race and thoroughly enjoyed the experience In full: reading the reviews,it says race was 3.25m long although some said it was just under 4 - think for £11.50 you should have an accurate distance.I'd enter again and would probably go out and drink 7 or 8 pints again the night before!! Good turn out as well. Date of review: April 3, 2005
