In short: Has potential to be a great race in the future In full: Organisation and communication could have been better and lack of prize ceremony meant that it all fizzled out at the end. The prize list was a bit dire too given the entry fee. Still, an enjoyable event and a great venue. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: Lovely run not got the Tshirt In full: I must say I really enjoyed this run. Got a kick out of running on the circuit and nice twists and turns in field. A few tweeks and this could be great. There really is no excuse for lack of mile markers especially when doing laps. Not sure why people are complaining about the lack of water. Two stations seems about standard for the distance. Drop price or improve goody bag. Will do next year because I expect them to impove. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: Glad I did it but not really impressed. In full: This is a famous old curcuit and well worth worth the journey to get onto the track itself. You'd think there was no chance of getting lost but I know of at least one unfortunate who managed it.
Three laps gave an oportunity to have more water stations, surely two on each lap was possible.
The registration, which everone had to complete on the day took an age with very long queues and after that we were left to make our own way to the start with no aid from any of the officials. A simple direction sign would have been nice.
£16 gets you a pair of socks and carb gel. Hmm not exactly fantastic value, do these poor triathletes have to pay through the nose for every event?
As I said, glad I did it but for me it's a definate one off. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: good pb potential in interesting surroundings In full: obviously you guys dont do much running! even london marathon doesnt have water stations every mile. what do you want the organisers to do run for you? enjoy the scenery and the weather this was a decent half. goody bag/tshirt would have been nice though!

In short: Interesting course but not enough water! In full: The course seemed a little short - 12.8 according to my GPS but otherwise it was a decent enough course with a couple of steep hills to challenge the legs. With more water stations & a goody bag it could have been a good event. I'll give it another try next year. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: The route was nice but the goody bag was rubbish. In full: I enjoyed the run, but nearly took a wrong turn a couple of times due to slack marshalling. I was gutted to see the goody bag - there wasn't a medal (or even a bag). We did get the socks, though. I would do it again, but expect organisation to be improved next year.

In short: not what was promised need to work on organisation. In full: this was my first half marathon and the course was good but the lack of mile markers and water stations was a big disappointment and the organisers need to look at there marshalling or lack of it in places. i would do it again if the people who made the promise's and organised the whole thing, did what they promised on all the advertising.definitely,definitely could do better. i hope they do cos i enjoyed the course.

In short: No water ,no mile markers, no medal,must try harder!!!!!!!! In full: The organisers need to work on this one.I expected water stations every mile not every 4.3.A goody bag would have been nice considering the price!!!!!! Date of review: March 9, 2008
