In short: Hilly...hot..... and hilly In full: This was my first half marathon. Blimey ! It was hard work. There are alot of hills and steady incline parts but thankfully we run through a great deal of shaded areas. Well marshalled, enough water stations and massages at the end!Oh and thank you to the lady with the hose.
A really fantastic event. Date of review: July 16, 2013
In short: A lovely scenic half In full: I did not think it was going to be that hot when I first entered earlier in the year but although it was tough it was a great run for my third half marathon. Really well organised and the never before have a looked forward to getting to a water station. There were plenty of them and great marshalling. Thanks ETL for a great day.

In short: Excellent race In full: First time for me, couldn't quite get myself up all the hills as I found them a bit steep, but loved it all and the marshals were superb, so encouraging. Liked the badger t-shirt and my dad got the beer! Will be back next year Date of review: July 15, 2013

In short: Hot and hilly In full: My stand out point was the marshals and support. Probably the best I've experienced outside London. They were so positive and encouraging, especially on such a hot day. The course itself was hilly but still enjoyable. I think the heat for me took away any chance of doing a good time but really enjoyed it. Minor point is to date the t-shirts to make it a little more special as it is the same from last year...or even the year before that. Date of review: July 15, 2013
In short: hot as hell but loved it In full: Phew what a scorcher, but what a lovely course even if it seems like the hill climbs never end. A very well organised race, lovely technical t-shirt , the only downside for me was the cost of on the day entry as i have injury problems i have resisted entering races in advance and the cost was a bit steep. That said i will be back gain next year. Date of review: July 15, 2013
