In full: very fast run,runners not very friendly. Would have hated it as a first time half...but organisation, marshals and scenery excellent. I love off road and don't mind being at the back so for me, it was great. Still can't get used to the runners in the UK and surrounds that are so unfriendly though. Date of review: September 7, 2010
In short: Great views, big hills, hard but rewarding In full: Doing this as build up to Berlin Marathon, was going to do another 4 miles afterwards but running this hard it was never going to happen! Great goody bag - beer went down well later on too. Well worth doing. Date of review: September 7, 2010
In short: Ye gods, i am glad i did some hill runs in training In full: Fantastic race .My first half .Are they all this good? The bar has been set high for my next one in a couple of months.I would wear trails next year tho as i found the stones on the way down a bit hard on my poor feet. Date of review: September 7, 2010
In short: Fantastic race In full: Best scenery ever in a race. Hills painful but a real test which is what I needed. Close to pb but couldnt quite manage it. Overall my favourite half, and expect to be back.
Also should just mention my wife did (and loved) the 3k fun run Her debut as a runner and she got the bug! Date of review: September 7, 2010
In short: Brilliant - friendly/well organised/good fun In full: It was very hilly so wouldn't recommend it for a first 1/2 marathon but it had a great atmosphere and was really well organised and friendly.
