In short: Friendly marshalls, nice scenery, some pavement running In full: Great event, this was my first half marathon and i was a bit concerned it would be for club runners primarily, and there was a lot of club runners but plenty of unattached runners too.
Marshalls were extremely friendly and supportive to everyone without exception.
Good support from the crowds around the start/finish areas, and along the seafront - less so when going through the town though.
Mostly pavement running once the bunching at the start has dispersed after 3 miles. There is the occasional impatient driver (but that's Gosport for you!) but these are more than easily handled by the many police dotted around the course.
Overall an excellent day out, good organisation, and i'll be back next year - a big thanks to everyone at Gosport Road Runners who made this a great event! Date of review: November 19, 2006

In short: Well worth the trip for the PB potential alone In full: Well done Gosport Road Runners - a lot of organisation went into this and it showed. Good to see the police there on some of the awkward junctions too. Pleasant enough course, well marshalled and very friendly atmosphere - helped today by clement weather. It was a 220 mile round trip for me, but well worth it for a 1.37 PB. And just £9 - I'll be back. Date of review: November 19, 2006
In short: Very enthusiastic and supportive marshalls. In full: A flat course, which was only really anything to look at by the seafront. The marshalls were great, which was very welcome as there isn't much crowd support. Very long baggage queue before the race but otherwise good organisation. Date of review: November 19, 2006
In short: Friendly marshallers, great weather. Good PB potential. In full: Friendly, supportive marshallers and great weather combined for a great plodders run. Good course but a little too much winding residential mileage. Other than that part, quite nice scenery and a good chance for a PB. Date of review: November 19, 2006
In short: Fantastic Race, really enjoyed this one. In full: No PB for me (by a minute) but not to disheartened after carrying an injury for the last few weeks and not training much. A really good race with friendly marshalls and a good venue.Showers were cold though. Only thing was a big que for bags at the end, answer run a bit faster and youll get there before the rest. Fantastic.
