In short: Very enjoyable run mostly on traffic free roads. There were a few hills to make the run more challenging! In full: This is a well organised, friendly event and great for runners of all abilities. There were about 700 hundred runners which was a nice change from the big races where the large numbers of runners cause chaos at the toilets and car parks etc. Date of review: October 31, 2004
In short: Fantastic. Fantastically good, fantastically hard. In full: More drinks stations than you could shake a stick at. Everyone had water, orange and isotonic drinks. Every one had Mars Bars. All delightful. Date of review: October 31, 2004
In short: Lovely town and scenery. Enjoyed it. In full: I liked the course, and it's a well organised race. On the plus side the scenery and traffic free route was just great. A challenge 11 miles out, just when you think youre on for a PB, there's a good hill to sort you out. On the minus side, difficult to calculate your exact finish time (to the second) as there's no clearly defined start line and no definite finish line. Overall a really good 1/2 marathon.

In short: Everyone should try this one. In full: Mine and my friends first half marathon, enjoyed every minute of it. weather was great, brilliant atmosphere, can't wait for next year! Date of review: October 31, 2004
In short: One of the best half marathon routes in the country In full: This year's race was blessed with glorious autumn weaher which showed off Clumber Park at its best. Whilst the course is not flat I find that the underlations help concentration and the last thre miles is mostly downhill.
From my point if view this seemed like a well-organised event with plenty of marshalls, water, etc
Will definitely be back next year Date of review: October 31, 2004
