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
