In short: Excellent race again In full: Another excellent race on a beautiful day! I really enjoy this race, it's fast and flat on open but very quiet rural roads. There's little crowd support outside the villages but when you go through them the spectators were very good and there are friendly marshalls throughout. The scouts handing out water were doing a great job making sure everyone had as many cups as they needed.
This is a great low key event with no issues around parking or toilet queues and a nice bit of grass to relax on after the run. I also like getting a mug rather than another t-shirt or medal that has no practical use.
In short: Beautiful route, fast, flat and friendly In full: Just got back from White Horse HM - first time at this one for me - definitely be back next year. Matched my PB at 1.39 - not too fussed about beating it since it was a SCORCHING hot day so conditions weren't exactly on my side.
Three well-manned water stations and eager crowd support through the villages made it uplifting and the peaceful quiet country lanes made for a lovely HM at this time of year.
ALMOST flat except for two small inclines at the end - weren't that dramatic though really.
Only thing I'd change is that I'd prefer a medal instead of a mug as I'm sure most runners would. Date of review: April 10, 2011
In short: Great Race, low key, no hassle, it did what it said on the tin In full: First timer on this course after reading previous good reviews and seeing it in the top 10 Half Marathons list. It was the start of a perfect day, managed a new PB and then dashed across to Wembley to watch PFC win 2-0 in the FA Cup Semi Final. If I am being picky would prfer 1) Bottled water as most of the water from the cups ends up down me, 2) A medal over a mug & 3) Chip timing. However, even if no changes are made I will still be back next year! Thanks for all the hard work in organising this race. Date of review: April 17, 2010

In short: excellent all round - friendly and efficient and thoroughly enjoyable In full: great value for money and a wonderful course, spectators a little sparse but not unexpected given rural route! - low key but charming and will be back next year Date of review: April 12, 2010
