In short: Excellent challenging race, 2nd time doing it. Well-organised, good support, the only downside is a lack of showers . Overall, an excellent race plus I got a new PB, despite the torrential rain and gusty wind! Date of review: October 5, 2008
In short: Good first time Half Marathon In full: Never sure about going round more than once but this was fun. Scenic,undulating, friendly and the last mile or two is down hill which is good for first timers.. Date of review: March 15, 2008
In short: Awesome race In full: Boy I enjoyed this race. The course is a double loop down the coast for a couple of miles and looping up into the rural areas behind felixstowe before heading back into town and finishing on the sea front.
The weather was near ideal which made the views out to see awesome, the course was quite flat with a minor 1km hill at about 5 and 16km and the crowds along the prom for the start/end of lap1/finish were noisy and enthusiastic.
The double act providing commentary was great, and the proximity to the town centre meant for some good post match grub and beers.
The one downside was the narrow promenade for the start finish which was made even narrower with the encroaching cheering crowds which made my sprint finish a little tricky. Apart from that a perfect day - Thanks guys! Date of review: October 1, 2007
