In short: A great race if you're not to worried about time. In full: Pros: Scenic course, good value, good atmosphere, nice t-shirt. Cons: Little chance of a pb, Water in cups only half full. No bag drop-off as advertised(unless I missed it).
In short: The BEST Half Marathon in BRITAIN !! In full: Great organisation, friendly & very well marshalled event. for me this is the best half marathon I have taken part in over the last 16 years, the 200 or so volunteers make this a memorable day & one that will make you comeback year after year. At mile 8 just when you start to flag is probably the best / funniest sponge station at any half in the world.... we should raise our hats off to Dennis from Clowne Road runners for the nice finishing touches... ps "any one caught stealing a sponge will be prosecuted" Date of review: October 27, 2013
In short: Very undulating course, tough in places but scenic. Enjoyed reading the words of encouragement along the way and seeing some of the marshalls/sponge givers in fancy dress! Date of review: December 1, 2012
In short: maveluusssssssssss In full: back again for this great half best time for 20 years so really enjoyed it will def be back for next year. will just be 50 so it will my first as a vet. recommend this to friends who havent done it Date of review: November 4, 2012
In short: Excellent well organised event In full: One of the best organised half marathons around and although not flat, the downs compensate for the ups. Makes a change to enter a race on the day (personal circumstances meant I couldn't commit until race day) and Worksop Harriers should be proud of all those who helped stage this race. One comment I would like to make is how selfish the lady wearing a Moorlands vest was in deliberately throwing down her empty gel packet on one of the roads within Clumber Park...she should be ashamed of herself in not carrying it to the next water station.

In short: Undulating but fast course, great organisation, nice spooky touches... In full: Managed a PB by 2 minutes woohoo! The course is definitely undulating but with nothing too long or too steep. The first mile is the biggest uphill - once that's out of the way it's great running and you get to run down the same hill at the end. The race village is great and friendly with good facilities. The Halloween touches around the course are amusing and usefully placed for detracting from the pain! Date of review: October 30, 2012
In short: up and down route, very well organised and welcoming In full: A friendly very well organised race with an interesting route. No negatives apart from I was a halloween carrot not a pumpkin! Running as a pumpkin would have been silly. Date of review: October 30, 2012
