In short: |Sould be called the 'traffic' half marathon In full: I have to say that I was very dissapointed with this race. Very little support added to the fact that the race is almost entirely on roads with traffic still flowing in both directions - at times pretty dangerous. Not enough marshalls either. When you add tio the fact that it is hilly, with horrendous wind (today anyway), this is not a half marathon that will be remembered fondly. Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: Excellant race, very good organisation, just a bit windy! In full: Ditto all the good things that have been said below. Despite the wind ran 3 minutes faster than last time I did this race, and it was bright and sunny! Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: a tough stamina builder In full: Plenty of parking, enough toilets at the start (shame the joining notes didn't mention them and the queue at the school could have been avoided), and a good start and finish area. A hilly challenge (Fetch hill score of 372) was made tougher by a fierce head wind which at one corner nearly blew me off my feet. Although this was my slowest half for some time it was the stamina builder I was looking for. Good quality tech shirt which I probably won’t wear due to the huge sponsor’s logo covering the front…less is more guys. Good support from the marshals all around the course and 3 water stops (bottles not cups). Thanks for a good event.
In short: Simple. Great race! In full: Good facilities, good start zone, great route, good finish! Nice t-shirt! Would like to see chip'n'pin timing though! Fantastic support from crowds along the route and especially from the marshalls Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: Excellent organisation. Marshalls, spectators and other runners were very supportive. An undulating course made more challenging this year by the blustery wind. Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: great race In full: well yet another very well organised race, well worth trying out even with the derbyshire hills. thank you Clowne road runners and see you again next year Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: Even the rain couldn't spoil it! In full: A lovely run with plenty of well positioned water stations and a great atmosphere amongst the runners. I somehow managed a PB. Rain and hills must suit me. Best T-shirt I've had from a race. Would definitely do it again! Date of review: December 7, 2009
