In short: My first half marathon - I'll definitely be back In full: Super friendly atmosphere and pretty, non-threatening course made this an ideal first 1/2 marathon. Very nearly perfect - a few more loos and secure kit storage and it would have been flawless. Date of review: March 13, 2005
In short: Very good race - friendly & well organised. In full: Overall a very good race. The course is fairly flat, so not too difficult whatever your standard. Great atmosphere and well organised. Despite the large crowds there weren't really any major bottlenecks.
My only minor gripes are that there was no secure baggage storage and there was no separation of people by predicted time at the start, which led to more overtaking in the first mile or so than was probably necessary. These are only small things though and didn't detract from the overall race.
Well done to all concerned. Date of review: March 13, 2005
