In short: Goes from strength to strength. One of the best Half Marathons. In full: Was worried by the extra numbers, but didn't encounter any organisation issues. Great venue. No problems at start (although I was up near the front). There seemed to be plenty of water on a very hot day. Lots of marshals and helpers. Well done Hinckley Running Club.

In short: Hot, hot, hot!! In full: Great organisation and lovely scenery. Agree with last review that the temperature may it pretty much impossible to push for a PB. Water stations worked really well given the weather conditions and massive demand! Hope everyone who needed first aid due to the weather is ok. ps thanks a million to the guy with the hosepipe near the end - you are a life saver. Looking forward to the run next year.

In short: Great race, well organised - thanks to all involved In full: 2nd time I've done this and thoroughly enjoyed the experience again. Far too hot to consider trying to push it too hard and I was glad to get around in one piece. Great T-shirt with all competitors names on the back. Thanks to all involved.

In short: very nice run, i was very impressed In full: the run was realy nice and i enjoyed the views, as not from the area, two things spoilt it - one bloke swearing because he could'nt pass people at the begining, and secondly the bloke with the i-pod who spat over myself and a lady runner. yes i would run it again.
In short: Great race, lovely scenery, rain not a problem! In full: Had a fantastic race, got another PB despite the undulating course. The views along the course made it all worthwhile. I'll be back next year without a doubt. Well done to all organisers and helpers. Date of review: May 14, 2007

In short: Well organised, nice t-shirt In full: Enjoyed this race very much ... however is it just me, but I found it quite challenging, felt like a steady uphill run ... enjoyed the challenge though. Well organised, marshalls encouraging, and despite the weather the crowds were enthusiastic, thanks to all concerned Date of review: May 14, 2007
