In short: A lovely route with a great downhill finish In full: Good organistion pre-race, collecting race number was a smooth process. After the initial shock of the hill start the route became a lovely trek through lanes and the park..finished off by a mile of speedy downhill stuff.... A good event.

In short: Excellent organisation. Good support from spectators, marshalls and other runners. Quite an undulating course overall but a good downhill stretch to finish. The T shirt was excellent. I'll be back next year. Date of review: November 15, 2010
In short: One of the best ... In full: Not the easiest of courses but I have one of the runs of the year. The organisation, atmosphere, and the run through Clumber Park inspire good times. The downhill last mile also helps! Date of review: November 8, 2010

In short: Superb race, well organised, inexpensive, lovely route. I've got nothing to compare it to as it's my first half but I loved it and will definitely do it again next year. In full: T-shirt was great though not sure it + a snack bar really count as or need a goody bag but that's not a big deal. The race itself was brilliant.
I quite liked the fact that the start was gently uphill as it stopped me going off too fast. And there's something nice about getting the uphills out of the way early and knowing the rest of the race is mostly flat. Though saying that I didn't think the uphills were too bad - more slope than hill really. The ending being downhill was a real tester for me as I was exhausted but had no excuse not to lengthen my stride and really try to put a fast last mile in. Date of review: November 4, 2010
