In short: Well organised, flat, good value "local " half. In full: It's all been said - well organised half through (almost) flat countryside, good value. Would echo earlier comment re water sation at end of the race - needs to be further away from the finish funnel. Well done to organisers and all the supportive marshalls. Well worth my 150 mile trip - could be back! Date of review: April 11, 2010
In short: Very good race, well organised and well marshalled In full: Quick start, but soon spread out to plenty of room for runners, marshalls all very friendly. Course well marked with mile markers in correct place (unlike some recent races) Many thanks to WHH Date of review: April 8, 2009
In short: Great little race In full: Nothing flash or fancy. You get a road (flat and quiet) and a race (perfect sized field and well marshalled). No carnival. No trinkets. Has the feel of luxury food packaged as Tesco's own brand. True quality without the hype. Date of review: April 8, 2009
In short: Easy to see why this sold out so far in advance In full: It's easy to see why this race is so popular. With some of the big city half marathons charging an entry fee in excess of £30 it's no surprise more people are preferring an event that only costs £8 in such straitened times.
Very flat course, disappointed I was a few seconds outside my PB but enjoyed the run which is the most important thing. Very well marshalled and supported for a small local event.
Liked the design on the mug more than the last two years and the option of buying a race t-shirt is excellent, I nearly bought two as they were of a very high quality and again a steal at just a fiver.
Thanks WHH for an excellent event, see you again next year. Date of review: April 7, 2009
In short: Wonderful 1/2M, was lucky to get a returned number as it was sold out! In full: Parking ok, though not ideal - well instructed in the handbook/flyer sent out though. Beautiful route along country lanes. Only compliant - Putting the post-race water station at the end of the 'funnel' leading race finishers out of the area caused a bit of a queue, given a warm day. Could be moved for next yr! Date of review: April 7, 2009
