In short: A well organised race, hillier than I expected with some rough terrain. Easy to park, friendly marshallers and adequate water stations. In full: Perfectly timed to coincide with London marathon training, I really enjoyed this, my first experience of organised racing. The organisation was good, from start to finish, loved the jelly baby handed out just before the killer hill at mile 12! The ground was far more undulating and hillier than I expected - knees are really hurting now!Adequate water stations, nice drink/fruit/snack at the end and very friendly marshallers/ baggage storers. Only one minor flaw, no loo roll in the ladies and a huge queue. Thought the club runners would all be very elitey but was pleasantly suprised by the friendliness all round.

In short: Well organised, well marked and friendly marshalls In full: This was my first half marathon for 25 years. The organisation was superb with a well marked course and friendly marshalls. I did not realise this part of Lincolnshire had so many hills. Date of review: February 22, 2009
In short: Well Organised, with great off road section followed by senic roads, shame it was windy and cool In full: As I have not done this half marathon before I enjoyed my day out despite having a nose bleed that lasted the whole event and then to and insult to injury I blistered my feet still with 6 miles to go! But the true stubon runner in me got me round, okay not at my name sakes pace but at mine.
A big thank you to all especially the marshalls who possibly got cold waiting around for the slow animals sorry runners.
I would not put this up in the all time best races as I tend not to rate them like this, I just tried to enjoy my day out and run a bit more Date of review: February 22, 2009
