In short: Nice n' Fast In full: Read the reviews previously on this race and the flat, fast course certainly lived up to expectations. On the ground, not the most picturesque but plenty of support dotted around and great marshalling... there were loads about.
Had a great PB for first 10K then pulled my groin at mile 8 and slowed up as a result. Despite this just about 30 secs off my half personal best so will give this one a go again next year.
In short: Fantastic speedy race! In full: Still buzzing from knocking 9 mins off my half PB, and setting PBs r 5k, 10k and 10 mies en route! Super flat and speedy course with more marshals than you can shake a stick at, and brilliant samba drummers. Loved passing the other runners through the air base as meant I could cheer on (and be cheered by) my HER team mates... Great distraction when it hurt! Thanks Gosport...see you in 2014 Date of review: November 17, 2013
In short: Great value and great atmosphere In full: My third Gosport and it never fails to deliver. Brilliant organisation, great marshalls and good support especially in the latter stages along the seafront. Entry includes a medal, chip timing, a fab goody bag with cake, crisps, drink, banana, chocolate...I don't know how they do it for the price. Must be one of the best value HMs anywhere! Coupled with course with great PB potential its one I'd recommend to anyone. The are some dull bits scenery wise, but the Samba band more than make up for it :-) only criticism is that the details about parking were a bit confusing as I couldn't see how to get to the £1 car park and went to a pay and display instead. But a minor issue and one that is easily resolved with bteer signage/info Date of review: November 17, 2013
In full: Took over 6 minutes off my time from last year, very pleased. Weather could not have been better, good organisation and great medal, goody bag and homemade cake, son did the kids race and got a lovely medal, also bought the race tshirts which are very good quality, will be back next year Date of review: November 17, 2013
In short: Be upfront In full: So many rules that you don't find out about until AFTER you book. Particularly irritated not to have known about the no iPod rule - wouldn't have signed up if I had known Date of review: June 23, 2013
