In short: As my first half a great experience In full: This was my 1st half the marshals were absolutely brilliant. Could have done with one ot them running with me with a brolly!! Shame people cannot keep quiet during presentations! Date of review: November 6, 2005
In short: Murder in Marlow In full: The race was well organised and very popular but it is far and away the hardest half marathon I have done. Rotten hill at 8 miles is well named and there were numerous other nasty uphill sections. Little chance of recording a PB but worth a trip if you fancy a demanding and often painful run.

In short: Enjoyable, demanding course. In full: Quite a challenge on a fairly blustery morning. A possible PB course. Well organized and frienly efficient marshalls. Good value for money. Date of review: November 6, 2005
In short: I could easily have been persuaded to keep my leggings on and sit in the cafe in the warm and dry. Very glad I didn't. Hard run, especially the last slippery downhill section but worth the effort for that feelgood feeling at the end. Date of review: November 6, 2005
In short: absolutely kille hill, but friendly club runs it In full: hill at 8-9 miles is most horrific i've ever run!This year was really wet and windy in places and the roads were puddled up!Friendly stewards and good organisation make it a good run. Date of review: November 6, 2005
In short: Wet, windy but worth it In full: The bus to the start from the car park was a pain but well organised. The hall seemed a little small for the number of people.
As for the course itself, I really liked it. It was varied and interesting and I personally like all the underpasses and windy routes. It keeps me focused. The marshalling was top notch. There were loads of smiley people in yellow telling you where to go and giving encouragment. Thanks to all of them. Date of review: November 6, 2005
In short: Well organised race with very cheerful marshalls. Usually don't like races that involve laps but this was pleasantly enjoyable. Only complaint was the baggage area, as it was in the stand my bag got soaked as did my dry clothes! Date of review: November 6, 2005
