In short: Good PB potential course (with added cachet of F1 circuit for petrolheads)) In full: Brilliant weather meant I came back with mild sunburn (much better than the hailstorm 2 years ago). Increased numbers of runners also swelled the support (whch was great), BUT the helpful parking marshalls disappeared when we (all) tried to leave (took aaages), which kind of took some of the glow off the day.

In short: Good event again, still can't make up for dullness of service roads! In full: Enjoy this event, its always quick and well organised. The only downside is that the special feeling of running at the iconic track is let down by the relatively dull view, especially on the service track... Date of review: March 22, 2009
In short: Great value and very enjoyable race In full: Second year run and cant realy fault it. No problem getting in, just arrive early. Plenty of room on the wide track and set a PB so very pleased. Trick with the car park at the end is to head staight there and not hang around the finish area.
Dont understand the negative comments on value as at £15 it is one of the cheapest events on the calender. Nice medal and good T shirt (no so if you are of smaller build)
Will be back next year. Date of review: March 20, 2009
In short: traffic jam in and out spoilt the day In full: hadn't done this half for a few years after the car parking fiasco so was gutted to spend almost an hour getting in AND out. Being 5'2" I got a bit freaked out at the start being jammed in because of the delayed start and even though I was running under 9 min miles couldn't keep track of the pacer. Got my random goody bag and the biggest T shirt in the world and limped off - Never again!!! Date of review: March 20, 2009
In short: More stewards before the race please In full: Never done this race before and probably wont again. There was no one around to ask where the start was, there were signs but didn't seem to be very clear. Delayed start not sure why as we all had chips. Name incorrect on the time listing, took ages to find it. Did love the times above the miles and the miles were very clear. Date of review: March 20, 2009
