In short: Great Race - Another well run event In full: I just wanted to say "well done" to the organisers. A well run event with good support from the locals. A goody bag, medal and a bananna to boot. A cold day so the cup of tea afterwards was a nice touch. And a PB for me ! Date of review: February 16, 2010
In short: Always a great starting race for the year In full: Even better this year, it might have been cold but at least the wind stayed away. The organisation and support was great with water bottles and great prizes as a bonus. I always bring new runners getting ready for London and will continue to do so. Thanks to everyone involved.

In full: My first half marathon ever. All fine, but I didn't even know there were T-shirts until I read the other reviews, so I missed out on one of those. Definitely need to signpost those better. Date of review: February 11, 2010
In short: Excellent fast race but a couple of improvements In full: I echo everyone else's comments about the course and the marshalls, and overall this was an excellent race. Just a couple of grumbles
1. I specifically asked about water and was told "The water stations are, approximately, at 1.6, 4.9, 8.4 and 10.2 miles". I was planning to take a bottle at 1.6 and no one was offering any although bottles were there. Not a disaster but it did mess up my plan.
2. PLEASE if you are going to "ban" Ipod wearers, ENFORCE it - fed up with people tottering out in front of me in their own world. Disqualify them.
3. I got my t-shirt but I can see how people could walk straight past, better signs next time?
I hope these comments provide constructive feedback, it was an excellent race and so happy with a massive PB. Well done GBRC Date of review: February 10, 2010
