In full: I ran this race today - 25th Sept 2011 - but couldn't select 2011 in the options.
Nice place to run, great finish and hills were not too bad. The marshalls were helpful and the hospitality area was ok.
Start time of 1pm is odd and I think I ate too late!
Main complaints however are the water cups used instead of bottles - despite warning us in the runners pack not to pour water 'bottles' over us, which indicated that we would be given bottles. Cups either slow down or soak, and I really feel that with so many runners, the organisers could have stretched to buying bottles of water for runners. Especially on a hot day - which it was today...there were no extra water supplies or the showers also promised in the runners pack.
The goody bag was shocking - in fact no bag... a medal, mars bar, sports drink and finally the bottle of water! I even had to buy my own race T-shirt....
When I compare this all to the Cardiff half marathon, there is no comparison. It is for these reasons, that I will not be entering this race again. Date of review: September 25, 2011
In short: friendly atmosphere, great marshalls,plentiful drink staions, beautiful scenery- what more do you need? In full: This is my second Windsor Half ( it's my local training ground, lucky me!) so no hassles with parking, etc as I pretty much live next door. Expensive yes, but in aid of worthy charities so really if you are only runnning for the goody bag, best off save the entry fee, and go out and buy your own! You get what you need at the end of the race- cheers from the onlookers, a medal, drink and a mars bar.Drink stations frequent and always some had sports drinks available for mid field runners like myself. I have run in too many races where I am lucky if there happens to be water left, let alone sports drinks!A pleasant run, friendly atmosphere with loads of encouraging marshalls and raising money for charity to boot.And those hills? Try a few runs around Sydney and then talk to me about hills.... Date of review: October 6, 2010
In short: Definitely undulating, but not nearly as bad as some make out! Marshalls were great, only problem was people stopping mid-path to walk in the first 2 miles..... Date of review: October 6, 2010
In short: A nice traffic free route with great scenary In full: better conditions this year than last year and took 5 1/2 minutes of last years time and just missed a PB. Agree with others about the cups of water, however took a camelbak and didn't need to pick up anything on route. Date of review: October 2, 2010
