In short: Great race, great occasion In full: Fantastic morning out. Beautifully organised. The uphills don't affect times too much as the downhills are lovely and fast. Really chuffed to finish in the top 20. Date of review: May 14, 2012

In short: Top race for a top lady In full: Enjoyed the race, well organised, and great support with very vocal marshalls. Only one or two gripes. 1st, why do the organisers use the chips that tie onto laces ? Last thing you want to do at the end of a tough half is bend down and take it off. Plenty of other halves have them attached to the race number (see Conwy, Rivington, Wilmslow) Bit chaotic at end, but bag retrieval spot on, water and energy drinks all over the course. Great t-shirt. Will be back, but please consider timers on bib ?
Text service outstanding, results in less time it took me to get my bag. Date of review: May 13, 2012
In short: Awesome support and challenging hills In full: This was my first half marathon so I was nervous, but the encouragement from the crowd and the marshalls really made a difference. People stood all along the route, cars with music playing loud, it was a great atmosphere!
Organisation was great, plenty of water stations, and you get a medal at the end. The first hill up Stonegate road was pretty tough, but the rest felt OK with plenty of downhill to enjoy.
Will definitely be entering next year! Date of review: May 13, 2012

In short: A great half marathon and all for a good cause too! In full: This is my 4th Leeds Half - I really like it (being a local!). It's a great atmosphere, fabulous marshals, very well organised and lots of local support. Slightly challenging route (which I like) but the down hills make up for it. Only slight niggle this year is that there were a few bottlenecks where we had to walk/jog. Shame, I might have shaved a few nano-seconds off my time!!! Date of review: May 13, 2012
