In short: Very good race. Got another PB so very pleased!! In full: In general very well organised. Changing tents at beginning were a bit disorganised but by the time we had finished we had separate male and female!
No one seemed to know where the start for the fun run was and was told several times that there was no baggage service for fun runners - not true!
Huge queues for the toilets at the start did not help.
All theat said the course was excellent and marshalls were friendly. Great atmosphere along the course from spectators. Will be back again next year.
In short: PB so great!! In full: Really enjoyed this, better organised than Bristol half. No probs with parking, no probs with baggage deposit or collection. Slow going at start but almost expect that in a big race. Goody bag was 'good' interesting having a bag of soup in it!! Great spectator support. Will do it again. Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: Fast course new PB so very happy In full: I thought the start was well organised even though I did n't get into my pen as early as I'd like as the queues for the toilets were huge.Lots of men peeing under the rugby stand when all the toilets were found to be locked YUK. Nice goody bag but took ages to get my bag back I was freezing would have helped if there had been a foil in the goody bag. I'll be back next year as long as the entry numbers have n't been increased again. Better than last years Bristol HM Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: Great fun as Batman and Robin! In full: Well what can i say. the supporters were phenomenal, my friend and i attempting the full race in Batman and Robin costumes for charity, really got a kick from the crowd, they made the day! Nice scenary in the historic city of Bath, nice enough for the 2 laps not to be tedious at all, excellent goodies and runners village! defo do again but prob wont top this years!!!

In short: Good crowds in the city but not so much for the 2 laps in thr 'country' In full: Once again very slow getting clothes bags at the end, if the weather had been any colder or indeed raining, the runners village would have been muddy and runners would get very cold waiting for bags.
Other than that good run, but as others have said it was very expensive. People have said that the goody bags were 'good'!, but surely the bits in there are free from the sponsors anyway? Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: Pb, Great Goody Bag.... happy bunny In full: When I enetered I hadn't realise it was 2 laps, as I normally avoid multiple ;aps. However, it wasn't as hard as I thought. I liked the fact that I knew what was coming on the second lap (might have felf differently if it was a really tough course). Support was great all of the way round, loved the drums - made the hairs stand up on my neck! Long ques for the loos but they moved very fast so nothing to complain about. I enjoyed the runners village, I wish I had got there earlier and i could have looked around more. baggage store was a smooth operation for me. Best goody bag I've had so far. Biggest event I've done so far and really enjoyed it. Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: Very well organised and reasonably flat course In full: Second time at bath and once again impressed with the race village organisation. Loads of portaloos. Course is pretty flat (got a pb this morning). Prety good atmosphere probably not helped by the cold this morning. Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: Excellent race with a good PB potential In full: Pretty much full marks from me for today's race. I liked the Runner's Village, thought the organisation was smooth and the problems parking I had expected didn't materialise. Shame about the wind but you can't have everything. Will be doing this one again. Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: I love this event but the start arrangements still need some work! In full: Goody bag - lots of bits and pieces and decent medal. I love the course and the atmosphere, the music just before queens square outstanding every year, good for a lift. Perfect for first half marathon runners/beginners. The only negative was the start once again was chaos. You often have people complaining about slower runners starting too high up, but what can you do if there's no organisation to get you in the right time slots? Still needs some work for next time, but i'll definitely be back again next year! Date of review: March 25, 2007
