In short: Cute Woodland Run In full: This is a great 2 lap course through the woodlands of Burnham Beaches. The course is generally flat with only minor uphills, which are not too difficult. Burnham Beaches is a great area for running and with some great marshaling and support it makes out to be a fine Half Marathon.
My only issue would be the very long walk from the car park to the start line (thankfully I made it with plenty of time) and the lack of goodies on the finish line. Apart from a good medal and water there was nothing else to get too excited about.
Overall I would recommend this race and look forward to participating next year. Date of review: August 19, 2014
In short: Excellent race - full marks :-) In full: I took 5 minutes off the time I ran here last year so that's obviously influencing my view of the event, but there is nothing bad to say about it as it's all very well organised, has plenty of water stops, is a nice 2-lap route so encourages spectators (there is also a café in the Beeches that is near enough to race HQ), there is a very nice medal, has very supportive and enthusiastic marshals at all junctions and at the finish, and I give full credit to those who were still out on the course after the heavens opened yesterday!
One word of warning - the car park is a good mile from race HQ so is fine for your warm-up and cool-down if you have plenty of time ...but some people didn't seem to have read the race brief and had to hurry to the start. Date of review: August 18, 2014
In short: Enjoyable route, great support, well organised. In full: Nothing too fancy, but did everything well. Nice feeling around the start area, all the facilities you need and no long queues for anything. Very well organised, everything seemed to run like clockwork. Course marshalls were great with loads of encouragement on both laps. I hope to be back next year. Date of review: August 18, 2014
In short: A great day for summer running In full: On a great day for summer running this lovely scenic course has plenty of ups and downs. Well-organised and marshalled by Burnham Joggers and, where I was running, a friendly bunch of runners. Never chatted so much on the way round a run. Date of review: August 17, 2014
