In short: Lovely run along the river with great african drummers In full: A well organised race, friendly feel and very pleasant scenery, but tough being off-road. Some choke points prevent a PB, but a lovely Sunday morning out. Very encouraging marshals. Pity the hot drinks ran out. My first off-road half marathon and I really enjoyed it.

In short: One of the nicest routes - if not the best route - for a HM In full: Second time that I did this HM - loved again every minute of it - even knocked off 2 minutes of my time from last year! Just love the running in the meadows of the Thames Valley and the view. Pity the weather wasn't as nice as last year - but still this is probably the nicest HM that I have run - apart from maybe one that I ran abroad in Austria! Well done Purple Patch - superbe organisation as usual - and the marshalls were all really supportive and cheery!
