In short: Still the best, most friendly half marathon I know. Recommended if you don't mind hills. In full: Not one for PBs. Very hilly! It's on road the whole way, but good scenery. And a really fantastic atmosphere, friendly club (Hogweeds) massages pre and post race. Highly recommended.
Small too - 300 maximum. It'll likely sell out in advance for 2008 - be warned. Date of review: April 20, 2007
In short: Tough hills in a great landscape with super support In full: First time I've ever run round a race with someone -- my sister and I did it together. Great fun to race in company. Wonderful organization and super support and marshalls round the course. It's my sister's local half marathon so we'll be back to break the 2 hour barrier next year -- our 2 hours and 1 minutes was harsh!! Date of review: March 19, 2007
In short: Surely this must be the hardest half marathon in England. In full: Will definitley be back next year. Nice marshalls and great support on the way round. Massage at the beginning and at the end of the race was very good. Followed by lovely tea and cakes. Date of review: March 18, 2007

In short: The best half marathon around - bar none! In full: Challenging course, the friendliest most welcoming people you will find, glorious scenery, wonderful home made food, encouraging marshalls at every stage of the way and a lovely downhill finish! Downside - you'll have to wait a whole yea for the next one!! Date of review: March 14, 2007
In short: If you pick one half marathon to run in March - make it this one! In full: Well done Hogweeds, a great race, in great scenery with great organisation! Ok, it may be hilly, but the encouragement of the marshalls, the atmosphere and the sense of achievement at the end make it well worth the effort! Date of review: March 14, 2007
