In short: Fantastic race and nice weather In full: This is my second year and as usual brillantly organised from start to finish (this included getting in and out of the car parks). The weather was really good compared to last year.
All being well I will make it round the whole course next year without cramp Date of review: March 10, 2008
In short: Phew first ever half but a good run! In full: 1st time at a half marathon finished in 2hrs 10, would've broken 2 hrs but had an injury when training, well worth the trip and fantastic value, I will be back for a sub 2hr run! Date of review: March 10, 2008
In short: Disappointed with myself, but not the race In full: 8 minutes slower than last year because i didn't respect the course and prepare well enough. That said well done to the organisers it ran like clockwork and it is a great run. Weather soooo much better than last year!!Only small critisism is the carparking was much further away than last year and 20 minutes with a cramped foot was painfull... Date of review: March 10, 2008
In short: where else can you run within such a famous track ? In full: fantastic organisation, brilliant marshalls (who knew what they were doing - how many times in the past have I asked marshalls at other events questions to which they reply "I don't know ask someone else !!!!!!!!!"A good medal , and the sheer thrill of finishing under the big banner Date of review: March 10, 2008
In short: Great race at a great venue In full: great to run in a traffic free zone, a little twisting in places but a great event at a great location, and I loved it. this is a potonital PB course depending on the weather as its a little exposed in places. Date of review: March 10, 2008
In short: Perfect for a 1st timer or an F1 enthusiast In full: Good stuff:- - The organisation was simple and straight foward. - No hassles - Plenty of space - Bag drop area very effective - Route was excellent (but i am a huge F1 fan).... running through the pit lane at 3 miles WOW! - Marshalls were encouraging - Goodie bag was ok, i only wanted the medal :-) - Speed of results on the web was instant. My partner relayed my position, official time, etc etc just minutes after i'd finished. - Plenty of cameras
Not so good stuff:- - Could have done with a couple more toilets at the start - As a person allergic to isotonic drinks, i needed more water stops - but that's a learning point for me really.
