In short: Great race and a PB! In full: This was my 1st half, last year - run with the dregs of man flu, so the time didn't stand too long. Figured I had to come back, some 'unfinished business'
Anyway, glad I did. Another runner with a new PB by 6:44
Loved the sick sense of humour around the 10 mile mark "last water for 10 miles", "Sponges 50p", wet sponges £1", "bike hire £5" etc - expected to see Jason Vorhees or Michael Myers standing menacingly with a machete 30 yards into the woods....
The runs great, parkings easy, 'T' shirts are a definite cut above the usual Date of review: October 31, 2010
In short: Undulating start but a quick course In full: Enjoyed it last year so I came back for more!
Well organised and they used the Halloween theme to good effect culminating in a nice t-shirt (in a sparse goody bag). Love the finish with the downhill and great support. Most of the marshalls were good too. Another PB for me, as I did last year too!
In short: Loved it In full: Well of course I am going to be happy because I set a new PB on this run, but apart from that I was pleasantly surprised. I really didn't expect it to be as good as it was. I will definietly be back next year. And yeah it did seem hilly in the first part, which I should have known really as I used to drive that route into Worksop everyday Date of review: October 31, 2010
In short: Great organisation, semi tough hills and beautiful scenery In full: Some challenging hills but the scenery compensates for this twice over. I plan to make this an annual event in my running calendar, Date of review: October 31, 2010
In short: Don't miss a trick, this is a treat In full: This race killed me last year. Seriously. They had to send my body back to my parents after it was found in a ditch at the side of the route. It took so long, even my clubmates had gone home. This year... the plan was to take 1/2 hour off that time. I managed 35 minutes. But that's not the point. The race overall was very well organised; the route is rolling hills through Clumber Park (woods) and town... The tshirt is halloweeeny and has my name on it (and those of several hundred other people!). The chip and pin part worked well and the race really was a treat! Date of review: October 31, 2010
