In short: Lovely run with great scenery. Not a PB location, but good fun and good organisation. In full: Organisation is great. From the coaches which allow you to park at the finish and they bus you to the start, to the marshalls well spaced throughout the course, to the start and finish, really polished and well thought out. The course is beautiful, but whilst flat, the number of kissing gates, a couple of sets of stairs to cross the river and the road crossings mean that there are better PB courses. Having said that, when the weather is decent, this is a fantastic run and well worth the money. Date of review: July 31, 2013
In short: Good views In full: Would have liked bottles if water at the stations. Cups spill when you are running and you are only left with one gulp not good on such a warm day. Date of review: July 30, 2013
In short: Great scenic route - quick with a few challenges In full: It's a flat race, with a few foot bridges to cross and kissing gates to negotiate. Also the path is narrow in places so if you don't like you pace interrupted by the route or other people, it's not for you. Saying that, I still managed a PB!
It's a really scenic route and the second time I've run it - I'm pretty sure I'll do it again next year. I live the variety the course gives you.
Organisers are slick, my only moan is they needed more loos at the start. Date of review: July 30, 2013
In short: What a fantastic race! In full: The team at PP have done it again; just a superb day out! Lovely weather and a pancake flat course along a beautiful stretch of river help, but it's the little touches that make a great race - and this is a great race. I'll be back next year.

In short: Superbly organised, lovely scenery. In full: Really enjoyed this one. My first half in over 15 years. Live in Dubai nowadays, so the greenery and river were a really welcome distraction. Would love to do it again. Date of review: July 30, 2013
In short: Well organised with plenty of water stations - friendly marshals - beautiful scenery. This was my first half so I found it quite a challenge but I would definitely do this one again. Date of review: July 29, 2013
