In short: Great organisation, great atmosphere, great race. In full: Very enjoyable despite the weather. Also felt easier than last year's race day mini heat wave. Faultless organisation and crew. Good support where the course lends itself to it. Nice medal and goody bag. Maybe slightly biased as this is now my local half, but it's also my personal favourite and I'm already looking forward to running it again in 2010. Date of review: October 17, 2009

In short: Swindonia has a few hills to make it a bit more of a challenge In full: Well organised, great support under the circumstances. Pleanty of Marshalls/water/aid stations. Course a tad tight in places, especially 7-9 miles. Wellorganised at the start and finish, adequate loos, good parking,good on-site activity. Bananas, curly wurlys, water and lucozade at the end, quality medal, naffish t-shirt but can't fault it for vfm and will be back. Date of review: October 12, 2009
In short: One of the best organised 1/2s in the country In full: I have run Swindon for the last 5 years. Every year the event is better organised. Bigger races like Bristol and Bath could learn alot from the swindon Team. Well done swindon Date of review: October 12, 2009
