In short: An enigma In full: Great race, and managed a PB, even with the wind:d one of those courses that keeps you working hard, not too many long straights or boring sections, can tell how much hard work goes into the race too. Looking forward to 2013! Date of review: January 26, 2012
In short: Loved it, will be back In full: Very windy, rather undulating, but everything just felt great about this race which contributed to a PB. Only areas for improvement would be the start not being in the car park amongst the cars. The shuttle bus from the parking area worked really well. Date of review: January 25, 2012
In short: superbly organised, a great race In full: This is a very good race to do. It is challenging enough to be interesting and though it has some climbs the downhills seem to compensate so it is a quick course. It was windy this year so PB's were hard to come by, but that's life.
This was my third time at this event and I intend to do it again. Date of review: January 25, 2012
In short: My first time at this one - won't be my last! In full: A very pretty run through the charming Cheshire countryside. The supporting crowds were sporadic, but very encouraging and the last 2 miles downhill make the climb in the 2nd half of the run worthwhile. Date of review: January 25, 2012
In short: I love Helsby Half! Got a 7 minute PB despite the wind and the little ups. Marshalls very friendly and encouraging. Parking not a problem if you take a few runners with you and get there early-ish. They do warn about this -read the information! Date of review: January 25, 2012
In short: Blew the cobwebs away In full: Pleasant course. Really friendly atmosphere. Could not quite get under 1:40 with the high winds, but still great fun! Only issue was the half full paper cups at the water stations....bottles next time please! Date of review: January 25, 2012
In short: Great course for a January Race In full: Great race, will defo be doing it again next year. Organisation was pretty amazing, no complaints. Can't was to do it again next year!! Date of review: January 24, 2012
