In short: Managed a PB! Lovely to be mainly traffic free. In full: Well done guys. In spite of miserable weather prior to start turned out to be lovely weather, what a glorious rainbow to spur us on! Well organized with lovely, positive atmosphere. This is my third time and will def do again. Date of review: November 30, 2009
In full: My first time in this race, but it won't be my last, well done City of Norwich AC on an excellent day, great organisation, lovely goodie bag, superb medal, nice course,and very friendly and helpful marshalls what more could you want, even the sun came out. Date of review: November 30, 2009
In short: Outstanding. A wonderful event all-round, highly recommended! In full: More or less everything about the event was fantastic. It was well-organised and spacious, everyone knew exactly what was going on, and the race organisers were cheery and very helpful. The start was prompt, and a great atmosphere as the sun came out right after a rainy spell. The marshals (and spectators!) were brilliant, they really helped a lot. The course itself was very nice, lots of gradual inclines but a pretty quick course nonetheless.
At the finish everything was well-run, with prize bags, medals and fruit to replenish energy all being there. With great running conditions, all of the above combined to make this runner have a fantastic experience at his first half marathon - I'd recommend this to anyone, experienced runner or otherwise!

In short: Fantastic Marshalls and Helpers. You're the heroes for standing our in the wet and cold, In full: Excellent organisation, can't be faulted. Considering it was nearly December it is hardly suprpising that it there was some rain and cold temperatures, but to organise a rainbow and then some at the start was a masterstroke! Another PB for me but I think I've peaked now, I can't imagine getting any better. Once again, a huge thank you to all the helpers on the day, you did us proud. Date of review: November 30, 2009
In short: Is it just me that wants the hill back In full: Enjoyed it again and the rain stopped at the right time. the course change has got a lot of positive feedback but i think it's a pity to see the big challenge removed.
I'll be back .... Date of review: November 30, 2009
In short: Two Loops of Flattish Norfolk Countryside... In full: I've not done the previous Norwich course, which i'm told did have a "killer" hill.
This course is best described as having the odd undulation and passes through a mix of small villages, countryside and through the Norwich Showground. Well marked on the miles, by the time you're on the 2nd loop you know fully what to expect and can push hard for that PB...
The fact that the rain held off for the race, helps wrap up my happy memories of the day - i'll be back next year. Date of review: November 30, 2009
