In short: Weather made it hard work but can't knock the organisation In full: I'm not at my best but 1.28 last year and 1.33 this year tells a story about the conditions. The only weakness with this event is the distance from the HQ to the start and the driving rain, wind and cold did expose this weakness this year. By the time the delayed start happened I was, despite my bin bag, chilly and wet through. As always the volunteers gave their all and lifted the spirits - you guys should all get a medal. The finish is uplifting and the goodie bag/medal/shirt of a high standard. Date of review: May 5, 2015
In short: Well organised race, ideal for a first Half In full: Really well organised race with an excellent goody bad as a reward. The only let down was the weather, but all the marshalls were still smiling and keeping everyone motivated. Excellent!!! Date of review: May 5, 2015
In short: Wet! Wonderful! Well organised and the best marshals ever! In full: My first half marathon and couldn't have picked a better one. Flat course, plenty of drinks stations, jelly baby station and so many friendly and supportive marshals. Great finish in football stadium made it feel really special. Followed by cake and massage. Fantastic! Date of review: May 5, 2015
In short: This race is excellent. The organisation, communication, marshalling and venue were all superb. Having pace runners was great and helped me to set a new PB destroying the old one in the process! Weather awful but still plenty of smiles!! Date of review: May 4, 2015
In short: Another excellent race In full: This was my 3rd time at North Linc's half and it was excellent yet again in spite of the weather! Marshalls were fantastic, plenty of water stations and a jelly baby zone! There was the added bonus of pacers this year as well which I think helped me get a massive pb! Highly recommended and I'll be back next year! Date of review: May 4, 2015
In short: PB smashed again In full: Even though the weather was poor this year, the organisation, dedication and attention to detail makes this race special. A truly flat course with a great stadium finish. Communication from beginning to end has been fantastic. Date of review: May 4, 2015
In short: This race restored my faith in humanity. In full: Bloody brilliant. What an event this is!!! Organisation could not have been better, the course is fast and it's the marshals were something else. They stood there for hours in the torrential rain cheering us on. It was truly heart warming.
Race HQ was pretty cool too. I'm not one for Scunthorpe United FC but it was a bit of a privilege to be changing in the away team dressing room.
I was initially sceptical about the fairly high entry fee but during the event I could really see where that money was being spent. Brilliant medal, t-shirt and cake at the end.
Without any shadow of doubt I'll be back next year.
Big thanks to the marshals. Date of review: May 4, 2015
