In short: Fun and friendly In full: Good organisation and well worth the trip. Nice to have your name and number called out at the finish for a final cheer. Excellent to a first timer like me. Date of review: September 24, 2004
In short: My first Half but I wish it had been my second - watch for the hills! In full: The course was described as 'undulating' which in fairness it is. However there are quite a few hills, not long but short sharp affairs that can take the wind out of your sails if you're not used to them. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even though I did not achieve the time that I wanted I'm sure I'll be back to make sure I do next time.
In short: Well organised, challenging event. In full: My first ever half marathon in 2003, I was back again this year and be there next year. A lot hillier than many imagine, the stretch from 8-10 miles breaks so many people. Have never run as well as I have hoped to so I'll be back to do better next year. This remains the one I want to beat! Date of review: September 22, 2004
