In short: Bad weather didn't spoil well organised first half marathon, managed to run it 7mins less than anticipated. Very undulated, diffcult first 3 miles to start. Great atmosphere! Date of review: November 30, 2009
In short: Dont get put off by rumours of hills In full: Brilliantly organised race, rumours of hills are exagerated, its undulating, but there are no major climbs really, just a combination of short uphills followed by flat areas. Bottled water greatly appreciated as was good support from marshalls. There isn't much public support although where it was it was great thank you.
A good run well worth the effort and if you haven't done it before give it a go, it really does deserve your time. Date of review: November 29, 2009

In short: Lots of twists and turns with a good mix of of town and country In full: A great run which would be improved a lot without the section on the main road or if it had some cones to protect runners. Good scenery with a few steep but not long uphills to add to the variety. Date of review: November 29, 2009
