In short: A friendly race, but some organisational problems. Encouraging marshals and great weather! In full: The Start HQ - the Village Hall, quickly seemed to struggle to cope with the number of runners: long queues for loos (men and women) and long queue to get baggage into secure area. Im sure some people missed the start whilst still standing in one of the queues. But it was a great day weather wise and course was scenic with only a few undulations.

In short: Great location, fast and friendly. Hope to see it back next year! In full: Very strong field, perfect conditions, and gentle quiet lanes make this a classic. Fabulous cakes, friendly marshals, great morale boost. Please run this again!! Date of review: February 4, 2007
In short: Flat as a pancake and good organisation In full: Had a great half marathon, nice and flat on country roads, friendly marshalls, and a very nice medal. Only slight moan is that a few more loos would not go amiss Date of review: February 4, 2007
In short: A definate contender for the fastest half marathon course in Britain. In full: Good size field with many distinguished runners from the world of marathon running.100 club marathon club represented and still flying runners throughout the world.Late entry desk open until a few minutes before the start. The courses largest incline is a hump back bridge.Farmers fields a great companion for most of the race.Marshalls with a cheerful disposition waving us on,even reminding us to smile for the camera.This is very fast course and the only thing stopping pbs is that runners might not be at their peak due to the winter season.The weather was a breath of fresh air.Running clubs throughout Britain represented.If you are just getting back in training as I was it was a real confidence lifter.
