In short: superb, and just keeps improving In full: My fourth running; this has always been one of my faves and I was sorry to miss last year because of illness. The organisation is faultless: superb race website, chip timing. A great course. If you only do one half mara next year, make it this one. Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Wonderful race, very helpful pacers In full: Fantastically organised race, couldn't ask for more. The pacers were particularly helpful and supportive. Will be back in the future! Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Did the 3k fun run with my kids, absolutely fab! In full: Kids loved it, got their own medal on finishing! Extremely friendly and supportive marshals. Despite the early 9am start and the freezing weather an excellent morning out! Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: FANTASTIC race, when do entries open for next year? In full: First ever half marathon, and a great one to chose. Best marshalls I've seen at a race, and even the other runners were friendly (that's not always the case I've found!).
I will definately be back to do this again, hopefully next year. Well done to all the organisers, you should give lessons to other bigger organisations as to how to do it! Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: great race good unassuming organisation shame about the wind In full: Great course and chip timing withe results up quickly the "windulations" in th e ifrst half a bit tough but the last 3 miles down hill very welcome. PB even though hamstring tightened up after 2 miles. and it didn't rain during the race Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Deservedly popular race :o) In full: I entered this race because everyone raves about it, and I wasn't disappointed. The organisation is fantastic. The course is scenic, undulating enough to be interesting, and the marshalling and traffic control are smooth as can be. I hated the uphill start into the wind, but loved the gentle three-mile downdulate at the end. The finish shows just how efficiently a small area can be used, and I was delighted to get a well-made shirt which fitted me properly, a Mars bar, crisps and sweeties in my goody-bag . The speed at which the results were published was fantastic - why can't all chipped races do that? Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Don't change a thing about this fantastic race! In full: Excellent organisation, friendly and encouraging marshalls, great route. Nothing negative to say at all about this race, I will be back next year. Date of review: November 18, 2007
