In short: More scenic than you might think In full: A well organised and friendly half with a couple of nasty hills but not as tough as the profile suggests. Always good to see Mick 'n Phil. Date of review: February 27, 2010
In short: Excellently organised race In full: Cannot rave highly enough about this race - the organisation from start to finish was excellent. The course is a nice mix of interesting town running and picturesque countryside.
Only downside is that there are no showers, which is a bit of a nightmare when you have travelled a fair way. Date of review: February 21, 2010
In short: Hills just kept on coming In full: Lovely race, organisation went very well - thanks to marshals, the hills were plenty and challenging no chance of turning on auto-pilot running. It was good to have time clock at half-way point. improved my Pb. Loved the finish running into the park where it all begin. Those hills in the countryside deserved a medal for the finishers. t-shirt will be archived. Date of review: February 13, 2010
In short: I love this race In full: Very well organised. Improvements for next year are; - sports drink in cups (you can still have a branded banner) or redesign the openings as I had to open by pulling with my teeth - delays collecting baggage needs to be sorted (this was a recurring theme in the 2009 reviews so not sure why this hasn't been sorted) - medal/buff or mug - the cheap t-shirt has been binned
In short: Great race, well organised, cheeky hills but very scenic In full: Can't fault the organisation; it all ran like clockwork. Course takes you out into the countryside which is nice. Some challenging hills but lovely bits through the woods. Nice t-shirt, but no medal unfortunately. Date of review: February 11, 2010
In short: Killer Hills! - challenging for your first half marathon! In full: This was my first Half Marathon and the hills, country scenary and laid back atmosphere made it a very enjoyable event! Date of review: February 10, 2010
