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

In short: Awesome organisation, smashed my PB, great autumn race In full: Clumber looked great, lovely Autumnal day, good race to round off a year. First 4 miles up and down straight away from the town, then long gentle hills through the park. I knocked a good chunk off my PB- will be back next year. Date of review: November 3, 2010
In short: Great race, great organisation, friendly Marshalls what more could you want? In full: First time i have run this race and would definately run it again. The whole atmosphere was was excellent (even though i didn't have enough money for the bike and short cut map at the sponge station - very funny).
