In short: Good run - bit annoyed about no race pack and few water stations In full: The Watford Half is a really nice run and all in all the marshals and staff are really welcoming. I was a bit annoyed that the Race HQ details were not changed on the website and I did not get my race pack in the post so pre-race was a bit stressful.
PLEASE have more water stations at the start and this race needs a medal - really important for me!!
In short: Can we have marquees every year? In full: Well organised race thank you. Much preferred marquees and they kept us warm before start. No queuing for loos, info and water. Supportive marshals. Thanks Date of review: February 6, 2011
In short: A good challenge, well organised and enjoyable In full: The hills were a good challenge, and the 1.30 pace runner did a good job.
Not sure what happened at the mens start where one of the runners at the front was crouched down when the race started. The runners directly in front and behind me went head first straight over him.
Overall the course is good with good support from the marshals. My only minor gripe is that between 11 and 12 miles it's a very narrow path with nowhere else to run. The people walking along here pushing prams weren't ideal. Date of review: February 6, 2011
In short: Hilly but enjoyable. Lots of support. In full: A great race, with lots of support. The hills are sharp but at least fairly short! Despite the hills- smashed my PB! Who could ask for more! Date of review: February 6, 2011
In short: Hilly but fun! In full: Enjoyable race. V friendly tent staff, marshalls and runners. If I had to gripe it would be - little narrow in places, but not too noticeable. The 1:45 pace runner was fantastic and he led me to a PB. Date of review: February 6, 2011
In short: Well organised and supported challenging race In full: Very well organised - lots of loos, good baggage handling, 2 starts in time order and chip timed so all good! Challenging race, hilly, but not too bad all things considered. Will definitely do again! Date of review: February 6, 2011
In short: A very enjoyable scenic and challenging race. Well organised with very friendly supportive marshalls. In full: Much better set up this year, much prefer the marquees in the park. Found in past always in a rush to get from colosseum to start on time. Date of review: February 6, 2011
