In short: A Grand day out In full: OK, I knew I would never get a PB with those hills, but I really enjoyed this race. Great weather, super scenery, 2,000 + runners having fun and smiling Date of review: November 1, 2010

In short: Enjoyable half in the scenic countryside In full: Have enjoyed coming up from Wales for my sixth consecutive Worksop Half. The organisation is flawless compared to mass city races! A friendly race with great support from the crowd and volunteers on the day, this is suitable for first timers to seasoned runners.
I've previously found the course undulating in places with the challenge of the hill within the first mile but this year, have found this course can be conquered with a bit more ease with some speed work and hill training!
Thanks and well done to the organisers and volunteers who helped out yesterday :) Date of review: November 1, 2010
In short: As Good as ever! In full: My third time doing this event and due to lack of preperation, my worst time. As ever, it is an excellent race thought the seemingly constant hills do take their toll on my lazy legs! Date of review: November 1, 2010
In short: Scenic course, not ultra flat but gentle rolling undulations still fast In full: Really nice, was 50:50 whether to run, even at the start due to recovery from injury. As it was I only managed to run for 9 miles and got a very slow time but still enjoyed the 4.1 to the finish! Will definitely be back to have a proper crack at this next year.
Well organised, friendly enthusiastic marshals and fun Halloween theme, especially the row of signs leaving the park! Date of review: November 1, 2010
