In short: Good race In full: Nothing especially unusual to comment on unfortunately, but it was a fair, well organised race with a relatively small field (just under 200). Friendly marshalls, a good finish line, tea shop, handy medal and a fast (though slightly windy) course. Could have put a clock at the finish line though! Date of review: April 12, 2010
In short: A well organised race with a good atmosphere In full: I was grateful for the reasonable weather and not too strong winds (but only for a few miles - the course did go in all directions, after all!. The organisation was brilliant and the results prompt. Only slight downsides were that the chap doing the prize giving didn't have the race commentator's microphone - it was hard to hear who'd won what! Also, more cakes for the hungry finishers would have been nice! Overall though, it was a great race and well worth the entry. Date of review: April 17, 2009

In short: Small field generated a big heart In full: Well organised by a club who obviously care a great deal about runners and running. While the medal did not mention the race itself or the date, the extensive number of prizes for the relatively small field made up for this. The race photos available on the day was an additional bonus. Note to catering staff - ensure that there are enough cakes left for the runners at the end! Date of review: April 15, 2009
In short: Flat, fast, low key and well-organised. In full: Small friendly village feel to the race, but everything you need was there - changing facilities, showers, plenty of marshalls, 3 water stations, tea and buns etc. And dead flat - quiet country lanes throughout, so times should be fast. Small field means running solo for much of the race, mind. Big up to Boston & District AC. Date of review: April 14, 2009
In short: My first half marathon race, enjoyed every minute of it, nice and flat, well organised. f In full: Great highlight to the Easter weekend. I cannot compare against other races as this is only my second. But the organisation and support was good. The medal was disappointing but lets face it they only collect dust, the memories are what is important, for me anyway! Date of review: April 14, 2009
In short: Dull weather but friendly atmosphere In full: Not as windy as before, so pb even more likely. Well organised and marshals were very encouraging. Good race for geriatrics like me. Date of review: April 13, 2009
In short: £10 entry warranted more than a 30 p Boston & District Athletic club medal In full: A very friendly race .Very flat .The majority of the miles seemed to be into the wind. The mile markers seemed very accurate ,bur some miles were very straight ,long and tedious I have completed over 100 1/2m or further races ,this was my wife's very first I have keptall the plaques,Special minted medals,Horse Brasses , Mugs etc Thia medal was BY FAR the worst memento How it can be classed as Commemorative,when it does not even mention the word Friskney or Half Marathon , I do not know.
I have been a race director or helped at many races , so I am not simply a selfish take / take runner.
To finish on a positive note , the water marshalls were some of the best I have come across , especially the guy at the last one , who insisted on running with us to feed us more water ,a throw water on our sore legs.He was a credit to the sport. Date of review: April 13, 2009
