In short: A lovely sunny Sunday run. In full: To all those griping about drinking from cups then why not do what I do; walk through the water stations. I mean not all of you are going to win the prizes and you will lose only about a minute and half in time in total. Plus in the many races I have done runners tend to waste thier bottled water. It's a wonderfull course and that hill between 10 and 11 miles is just cracking. Nice T shirt as well. Date of review: May 10, 2010
In short: Nice scenery, well organised and a nice T-shirt at the end.Would have been perfect if the water was in bottles rather than plastic cups (had to stop running for water at water stations) Date of review: May 10, 2010
In short: Scenic , well organised, flat(ish) ! In full: A well organised event ,the start was a little slow because some runners chose to start ahead of their alotted time pens so much slower runners were in the way in what was a narrow country lane! Not the organisers fault! Other than that the race was excellent , flat most of the way except between mile 8 and 11 there were a few "lumps and bumps" but from 11 home it was downhill which was great. Nice T shirt to finish with nice smiling and friendly faces greeting and handing out Mars bars and bananas which were very welcome! Date of review: May 10, 2010
In short: Cracking Race. In full: I'll confess to the Hinckley Half being organised by my club. However, it's organisation goes from strength to strength. The route in the rural area south of Market Bosworth which makes it very scenic.
The race venue has opportunities for supporters to entertain themselves while the run is progressing in the lanes.
T shirt is good quality, and there's no attempt to provide a goody bag full of junk.
I finally put my apologies in about my dog making an horrendous noise around the 2 mile mark, I think the some runners might have added extra yards to the race to avoid being near him, he was a bit miffed that he wasn't running with me and really wanted to join in with anyone.

In short: Well organised, scenic and fun In full: Well done & thanks to all involved. Great organisation, super atmosphere and undulating run suited me. Two requests: more toilets and water in bottles, cups are not good to drink out of. Date of review: May 10, 2010
In short: a good day out In full: Disappointed to miss gun at the start due to being stuck in the toilet queue for an eternity.This resulted in me being right at the back of the field and unable to make progress to where I wanted to slot in due to the narrow lanes.It all got better until we were expected to run drinking from a cup and where was the lucozade (as advertised on information)? Liked the undulation-what goes up must come down-and I liked the enthusiastic chap at mile 11 where we turned a corner and as he promised it was all downhill to the finish. Date of review: May 9, 2010
