In short: that hill at mile six is a baby compared to the one at mile 9 In full: i did it for training for edinburgh marathon and its pretty hilly but everyone knows that so no surprises. gents toilet was weeing into a pipe in the alley! but apart from that really well organised Date of review: February 11, 2008
In short: I LOVED this race so much!! Such an interesting and varied course, stunning views and extremely well organised. In full: Of the six different half marathons I have done to date this has to be my favourite.
Yes the hills are tough but the views are spectacular (anyone who says otherwise must have been running with their eyes to the ground the whole way round, tsk!) and the overall sense of achievement from completing this, the fantastic organisation, friendly marshalls and general atmosphere was second to none.
Not a PB course but if you don't go looking for one then you won't be disappointed. All the same, lovely and friendly for beginners.
Can't wait for next year! Date of review: February 11, 2008

In short: Challenging but very rewarding course! Very scenic and excellent organisation! Great day! In full: I wouldn't say this is a race for the beginner as it is challenging and very hilly but I certainly would recommend this to any runner who is marathon training or simply wants a good, tough race. What a glorious day! Very friendly race, great organisation and very scenic. Nice T-shirt at the end, and somehow I got a PB. Training must be going well!! Date of review: February 11, 2008
In short: Undulating race with good views over the valley. In full: Good solid undulating half marathon. Weather was perfect this year (no wind with a hint of winter sun). Date of review: February 11, 2008
In short: (Very) Hilly, sunny, friendly. Well organised and one of my favourites In full: The fact that i did my long term PB target here (with those hills) made this race special and makes me wonder what i could have done on the flat. Great atmosphere, glorious weather. What more do you need? Date of review: February 11, 2008
