In short: Brilliant race, beautiful scenery. In full: This is the second time I have done this race (having previously done it in 2011), the course is challenging, with a fair amount of climbing alongside the Great Orme. The scenery on the climb is stunning though, and the castle finish is pretty good too. Definitely recommended. Date of review: November 24, 2013
In full: first time i have done it and loved it. Its not a beast but dont think that it has pb potential unless you never do a flatty. The announcer speaking welsh (how many of the welsh understand it!) gave the event a Gavin and Stacey feel!But this did give a certain uniqueness to the event! Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: Best Half of the Year bar None In full: Best race of the year, once again perfect weather. Tough as old boots as ever, The Orme and the sand make it a slog, but will book again next year for our annual pre Chrimbo pilgrimage to the Motherland
In full: Great race today in perfect conditions. Never done this one before if it's windy I can imagine the great orme being a real struggle. I don't think the great orme was too difficult except for maybe the last bit, but the run down gives you chance to make some time back.
My only gripes are: 1) no where near enough toilets at start 2) hate water out of those little cups with foil on 3) medal crap, and no goody bag Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: A nice Half Marathon In full: A good race again this year, well organised. However,no goody bag at the end? All that was on offer at the end was a bottle of Lucozade or water! The biscuit box was a nice touch last year. I was seriously low on energy levels at the end and something to eat would have been good! For the price, a goody bag should be included. I also don't think the medals are as good a quality as the ones given out in years gone by!I enjoyed this race though and the Great Orme was as brutal as ever! Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: Great scenic course and organisation In full: 4th time out and a new pb. Shows that although it has a hill it can be quick. Another beautiful sunny day for a stunning course with castle, sea views and lap of the great Orme to boot. great organisation. A cracking event all round Date of review: November 21, 2012
