In short: Tough work into the wind this time out but should be a flat and quick 4 lap course in good weather. Weolcoming team and organisation , lovely cakes at the end :-) Date of review: November 10, 2008
In short: A good race, one that will surely get bigger. In full: Apart from the howling gales against you along the seafront it was a great gruelling race. The marshalls were very encouraging and the marquee was a very welcome sight at the end. The cakes and refreshments were lovely. Well done Bexhill on a great series. Date of review: November 10, 2008
In short: WINDY - but worth it, nice friendly atmosphere In full: Arrived in rain and hail storms, so didn't bode well. However, it stayed dry for the race, but the WIND - wow - certainly got the leg muscles working. The marshalls were great, the run would be ideal for a PB as nice and flat, and the Kite surfers took the mind off the pain for a while. Well organised, although I'm not sure it would work if the race gets bigger (and hopefully it will). The cakes were a welcome treat. Nice medal and T-shirt at the end, and all proceeds for such a worthy cause. Will be back next year for sure. Date of review: November 10, 2008
In short: well organised blowing of the cobwebs In full: Fantastic medal and Poppy t-shirt. Very well organised race, with great encouragment from the marshalls. Free sea air and crashing waves as a bonus. Love to do this one again. Went home with a runny nose and a PB. Thank you. Date of review: November 9, 2008
In short: Flat, flat, flat, but OMG the wind In full: I have never done such a flat half marathon. The wind was terribly strong today - it was hard to walk in a straight line. In better weather, it would be beautiful since most of it is along the front.
The organisation was good. It was lovely finishing the race in a tent full of fruit and homemade cakes. And the marshalls were fab, especially at they hand to stand around in the icy wind for hours on end.
There were children's races too, so you can bring the kids. Date of review: November 9, 2008
