In short: well organised race with great local support In full: I have been trying to break 2 hours for my past 3 halfs without success. Having read previous years reviews about the hilly first 6 miles I was not expecting to get a pb. In reality I did not find it too bad as there was just quite a few steady inclines for the first half and then the downhill part just when you need it. So finally managed to break that 2hour barrier.
Thought the marshals and locals were fantastic - very vocal!
In full: Having finished at the back of the field (newbie runner!) I felt there was little support. Also the pack given out was pretty poor and only T-shirt size left was a medium, needed XL :( real shame as I enjoyed the run even though it was a killer, am reconsidering entry next year due to lack of reply from the organisation.
