In short: Excellently organised, if a little exposed for windy November days. 9/10 In full: I thought this was a very impressively organised race, surprisingly scenic. It dies undulate, but noting traumatic and up followed by decent downs. A fast course, I think, though be warned - it is exposed and on a windy day you'll feel it!
I thought this was a great race and CONAC can be rightly proud of it. Excellent medal and goody bag too. The pre-race materials can sound a little officious, but that pays off in a race that runs very well.
If I had to make one suggestion it would be a switch to water bottles. I know they have issues, but in the wind, the cups were almost undrinkable if not stopping. However, I can totally understand the argt against.
Overall, a great race. Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: A good race to cut your teeth on. In full: My first Half, so not much to compare it to. But excellent support on the way around, pretty villages, nice course. The last bit in the showground is deceptively long on tired legs. Date of review: March 23, 2011
In short: Well organised event. In full: As I live in Norwich had to do it. Its not flat more undulating. Glad it did not rain this year as this brought out the crowds which is nice. Id stick to the March date! I had no trouble with the car park. Not sure about the bag with the leaflets in given out at the end I would ditch that idea any maybe give the t shirt away instead!

In short: A really good race but there does need to be a serious review on car parking some people ran the half marathon faster than it took us to get out of the car park. Date of review: March 16, 2011
In short: Best organised race I've seen (out of a fair few), both for runners and supporters. Great atmosphere, and the two loop format was much better than expected - a good crowd booster half way. Undulating rather than flat, but still pretty fast course. In full: Notice several people complaining about problems getting out of the car park afterwards... Was fine when we left, but there was a surprising amount of traffic coming the other way off the A47 and Dereham Road - so expect this caused the congestion rather than bad management on behalf of the organisers.

In short: Enjoyable race made better by a PB In full: A good race even though I'm not too keen on running laps. The car park needs looking into for next year. The word shambles comes to mind. Date of review: March 15, 2011
In short: Great race, get's better each year In full: Fantastically well supported race and the atmosphere this year was superb. The good weather obvioulsy brought out many people to come and watch. Completely disagree with those who say this is not a PB course. This is about as flat as you will get for 13 miles, there is one hill and that is a gentle incline long. I've run 11 half marathons and my quickest two times are around this (new) course Date of review: March 15, 2011
