In short: The most difficult physical challenge I've ever taken on; I'm still hobbling about 4 days after! Makes the London Marathon seem easy now. A great run (in retrospect!) Date of review: July 6, 2005
In short: Great views, and hard work up and down the hills - but you don't choose to do this one cos it's easy! In full: Only gripe is that I got lost twice which cost me a few places, but this is effectively a fell-run, so that's part of the challenge.
Despite being a very tough run, it has a mixed field so you can go at any pace Date of review: July 5, 2005
In short: Fantastic Race! Definately one of the hardest 1/2 marathons in the UK. I'm aching in places I never thought possible. The support from the other runners was fantastic. Well done to everyone! Date of review: July 5, 2005
In short: Longer and harder than last year and all I could do was smile more In full: A true great race; hard as nails, set to put you off steps for life but the challange and the people will bring me back year after year. Please reserve me a place for 2006 I would not want to miss it... Thanks Date of review: July 4, 2005
In short: Fantastic. Harder and longer than last year - must be the hardest half! In full: I've just looked at the photos. This is the only time I've seen myself smiling in every one. Although it may have been a grimace of pain!. Thoroughly enjoyed myself . Well done Dr Rob Date of review: July 4, 2005
