In short: A challenging course, the wind and rain today made a change from the usual scorching heat. Organisation was excellent, as was the support from the marshals and spectators. The medal, plate, t shirt and goody bag was a very generous for finishing. Date of review: June 12, 2011

In short: Wet, tough but great fun!q In full: Second time running this race and it was just as good as 2010. The weather did have the potential to make this a miserable race but the supporters and friendly marshalls made a massive difference. It is appreciated, especially as they were stood in the pouring rain.
The course is not the easiest and Milton Rd hill is a killer!
The day was organised well and the plate was a nice touch this year, didn't expect that!
Overall a tough track but great support and decent medal, well worth the money! Date of review: June 12, 2011

In short: Ouch! Who put that bloody big hill right at the end?! In full: My local Half Marathon, a real tough cookie! Well organised at the start, fantastic support all the way round, great marshalls and a great finish right in the city centre. The course is a real challenge, lots of hills, seemed like the were all uphill as well! The final hill at Milton Road is an absolute heartbreaker but once that's done its an easy cruise into the city centre for a glorious finish! Date of review: January 29, 2011
