In short: The light drizzle didn't spoil a good race In full: I wanted to do a half early in 2011,so this was perfect. Despite not having done much specific training for it I was planning to use it just as a long run but I was delighted to have found I was running quicker than I thought, and with no specific time pressure I tried to actually enjoy it! That said though, if I had set myself a proper split per mile then I may have beaten my PB rather than be a paltry 57s away from it - d'oh!
Another good race - well organised as ever by Reg and Karen. Thanks chaps. Date of review: March 14, 2011
In short: Undulating, mainly rural route, well marshalled, friendly and on my doorstep - Excellent! In full: Enjoyed this one on 2 weeks of training after a layoff. Definitely back next year for a proper crack at this one. Thanks to all involved. Date of review: March 23, 2010
In short: Very nice atmosphere and well marshalled out on the course - a good day out! In full: A very good club race with lots of helpful marshalls. They just went a bit missing in the car parks as it got closer to the race time. Nice atmosphere around the race and when returning to the finish line. Some long drags out on the course especially 9 to 11! Enjoyed the run and worked hard. Well deserved few beers last night. Will probably be back next year to try and put in a better time Date of review: March 22, 2010
In short: Fantastic organisation - really good half, this one! In full: First time running this and really enjoyed it. It rolls gently all the way, but no major hills. Marshaling and police presence were excellent throughout. Date of review: March 22, 2010
In short: Great race! In full: Really enjoyed this race, my first half marathon. Marshalls and police presence was excellent, plenty of water stops. Well organised and a good atmosphere, would definitely do this race again. Date of review: March 21, 2010
