In short: Challenging in places, extremely well organised and excellent value In full: A good mix of runners and everyone made to feel welcome. A hilly course in places, well marshalled and a welcome ice-cream van at the end! This was my third year at Bracknell, and definately back next year. Date of review: May 8, 2011
In short: A big THANK YOU to all Bracknell residents who turned out to cheer us on ... In full: ... and to all the many marshals. A testing but pleasant and safe course plus excellent goody bag made this a special race. Thanks very much. Date of review: May 8, 2011
In short: Well organised and great value In full: Second time run and for some reason felt much harder this time. The uphill from around miles 6 to 8 seemed to go on but maybe I'm just getting older. Great marshalls and good support. Very good value for money ane will be back next year. Weldone to all involved. Date of review: May 8, 2011
In short: Fantastic organisation In full: A really great race. It was our first half marathon and we found the organisation and marshalls brilliant. The course is much more hilly than expected but maybe that's just my fitness levels. Special thanks to all the marshalls. They really encouraged you at all time. Date of review: May 8, 2011
In short: Brilliantly Organised as Ever In full: Another great Bracknell Half - thanks to all those involved - the organisers, the marshalls, those on the water stations, the children with the 'super soakers'. Found the last two miles tough going but snuck home in just under two hours so happy! And what a goody bag and it is all useful. Date of review: May 8, 2011
In short: Well done Bracknell In full: Undulating oh yes with a nice little hill around 7miles i think. But Great race Not just organistion and wonderfull marshells, But the Spectaters and surporters the whole way round. Bracknell should be proud of its self. Date of review: May 8, 2011
In short: Enjoyable race In full: Good race and the course was well marshalled and signed. It was a good job because the course was mainly on cycle ways and footpaths. The marshals did a terrific job where we had to cross side roads.
The course was certainly "undulating" and the hill at about 8 miles made it quite challenging I thought.
The start/finish location was quite nice and spectators were able to get a coffee while they waited.
Only minor criticism was over the marshalling of the car park that meant people arrived later and left their cars in silly places. Minor detail that I think could be improved for next year.
In short: Not Easy! In full: Found it tough going today - not sure why - it actually felt like 3/4 of the race was uphill! By mile 9 I was barely moving - most odd. Anyways, always good to return to my an old stomping ground, and mostly enjoyed the race (aside from my lack of fitness!) The local support was outstanding, and the marshalls and organisers were brilliant. I should also mention that the goodies at the end were the best I've ever received - I was actually pretty chuffed - shame I couldn't provide a performance to match! :) Date of review: May 8, 2011
