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

In short: Very enjoyable well organised run. In full: This is what it's all about in my view. Great value, great course, really good organisation and good support from the marshalls all the way round. Will most certainly be back. Thanks to all involved in making this a hassle free event.

In short: Cracking race - very well organised, low key but nice and friendly. In full: My first half but ran faster than expected. Flat as a pancake with great weather which helped the miles whiz by. Marshals did a great job, seriously happy bunch! Slightly weird with start,finish & HQ in different locations around the village but well done WH Harriers. See you next year.

In short: This is the race to do if you want to do a personal best. In full: I ran Reading HM the week before and achieved a PB in that race. Having done the White Horse yesterday I beat that PB time by a minute. I would have been quicker but my legs were still sore. A great race, nicely organised, very friendly and with around 500 runners not over crowded. A friend of mine did it with me and it was his first race and he loved it. Date of review: April 6, 2009
