In short: A really nice race, and farily beginner friendly, but they could at least have waited for the last one or two to have crossed the line before packing things away. Date of review: March 9, 2012
In short: Watch out for The Orme! In full: Apart from The Orme the route is almost completely flat but I still don't see how anyone can set a PB here! This is a great race but there's a few minor problems; there's nowhere near enough toilets for the amount of runners, the first couple of miles is too narrow and the sand in the last couple of miles is a nightmare for tired legs. I'm sure there was no sand in 2010. I'll be back for my 3rd go in 2012 though! Date of review: March 9, 2012
In short: fantastic, loved every minute of it In full: they need to set people off in stages, as it was a little packed on the cycle path, that spoils your rhythm and pace. the only way to get ahead of the crowd is to get to the start line first. apart from that i loved every minute, and got a PB which was a surprise.

In short: Great Orme, Great Run and a PB what more could you ask for. In full: A great event overall, my few grumbles would be water stations were not as advertised, the type of container the water was in and the quantity of it was difficult to manage, and finally the sand on the bike path maybe could have been removed.
Looking back at it I have no idea how I managed a PB. This was my 3rd Half Marathon in 6 weeks and the 3rd PB knocking 13 minutes off my Royal Parks Half time set 6 weeks ago, that being a relatively flat course in comparison to Conwy.
