In short: The Hardest Half, love it!! In full: My normal half marathon time is 1:42, this took me 3 hours, that's how hard it is. What a great race though, would certainly come back. Date of review: June 17, 2015
In short: Ahh got to love the Munro otherwise why else put yourself through the pain !! In full: 4th time round and it was as immense as ever !! And as I did last year - I say to myself never again but how can you not.... Thank you Dr Rob.. Must have been tough to change times etc.... but made no difference whatsoever (even my supporters didn't grumble at the 5.30 Sunday alarm call)..
And amazing support as always from the marshals, your alarm call would have likely been of a similar time and yet you all had a shout out and a smile for each and every runner !! Thank you :-)
And thank you Dr Rob.... Same time next year !! Date of review: June 16, 2015
In short: the best in britain. In full: hi my name is Jason I travelled from Plymouth to do this race I have done two marathons and loads of other race,s but this one beats them all this is the best race by far just one thing I would say is I wish it was a uka/ run Britain race or chip time apart from that I will be back to do this again as its the best I have ever done.

In short: seventh year and gets better everytime In full: excellent organisation as usual, the Marshalls are simply the best so cheerful. The interaction with the other runners makes it a very special race and will be back next year for number 8 Date of review: June 16, 2015
In short: great race to marshal In full: I never get tired seeing inspiration in front of my very eyes when these events take place - everyone was brilliant , faced their demons and came away bigger and better for the challenges they overcame - amazing !! Date of review: June 15, 2015
In short: Hill running or stair climbing ? In full: I prepared for this by hill running, I should have maybe done some sprints up and down my stairs at home - never anticipated such brutal steps, but this only added to a huge sense of achievement at the end.
Really well run, apart from the bottleneck at the start, loads of fuel stations, beautiful scenery, great marshals, and welcoming for runners of all levels.
Highly recommended, one of the best races I've run, can't wait until the full version next year. Date of review: June 15, 2015
