In short: If you want to run a 1/2 marathon this is the best one to run In full: My favourite run of the year done this run 3 times now and enjoyed every one. Big thanks to organisers, marshals and fellow runners for making it a very enjoyable day. Date of review: September 16, 2014
In short: The most fun you can have running 13.1 miles In full: Brilliant, brilliant day!
I managed to beat my marathon PB by 30 seconds... over a half marathon distance! This was entirely due to the 15-20 minute wine stops and being so drunk by the time I finished, that I couldnt even walk straight, nevermind run!
See you next year! Date of review: September 16, 2014
In short: Absolutely marvellous. Great Atmos. Awesome Venue. Incredible Race In full: Brilliant atmosphere and great organisation made this race perfect.

In short: Gets better & better In full: 3rd time of running & having run it seriously, decided to enjoy the wine at the numerous stops. Fantastic organisation, incredible medal, great day out. About 12 people from my club entered the race, next year I suspect there will be twice as many. Thanks ETL. Date of review: September 15, 2014
In short: You cannot have more fun than this doing a Half-Marathon !!! Can't wait for next year. In full: It was simply fab! What more can I say. PB's are not on our agenda these days, so this was to do the distance and have a lot fun - and oh my, what brilliant fun it was! I'm sure the non-fancy-dressers would have felt they were missing something - so I'm very glad we made an effort to look silly. Will definitely be back next year. Date of review: September 15, 2014
In short: Fabulous Half, Fabulous Organisation, Fabulously Friendly! In full: Stunning scenery, brutal hills - it's definitely a challenge but just has to be experienced. The organisation is faultless, the people are so friendly & the whole festival is about having fun and enjoying the day. The water & feed stations blew me away, I've never seen such a selection of treats to help you on your way - let alone the wine on offer!! I was so very thankful that there were so many water stations on route, it was a hot day and I don't run well in the heat - I needed every water station to rehydrate without which I'd have crashed & burned!! Mile 12 is such a beautiful thing - down hill all the way, through the vines to the finish line. The two organisers were at the finish line to shake your hand and congratulate you on your run - so very lovely! Best medal ever too - makes my others look a little sad, and a great technical t- shirt!! Food & drink at the end is included in your entry fee too, also beautifully organised. Will probably be back next year to beat the hills - will pray for cooler temps!!! Date of review: September 15, 2014
