In short: **Flat course, Very well marshalled, Mile markers missing, Glastonbury-esque toilet scenarios, Dodgy commentator, Good fun** In full: +++POSITIVES+++ Well marshalled, plenty of water, flat course (managed a PB), obligatory 'amusing' middle-aged commentator
---NEGATIVES--- Mile markers missing (2 + 3 missing, 1 in wrong place), not enough bogs (please get some more), obligatory 'amusing' middle-aged commentator
It also rained, perhaps in response to another gag about someone not wearing their race number. Overall recommended.
In short: Excellent In full: A little hilly but worth the scenery.Fantastic through the forest and fields.Nice twist!!! Thank you to the children at the water station for the sponges!!!well organised Date of review: July 25, 2005
In short: One of the tougher halfs, but at least not boringly flat In full: Even though the hills were tough, especially the one between 11 & 12 miles, there was something about this race which makes you say, I would probably do this again. Water stations plentiful, and all had sponges as well. Overall a very good event in a very nice setting, with a nice show and a few beers to finish off. Also makes a change having a Saturday race.

In short: This was the hardest thing I have ever done - it was harder than the London Marathon. I'll be back next year to see if I can go all the way round without walking. Date of review: August 24, 2004
