In short: A lovely scenic run which was very well organised. The only negative was the weather but that made it all the more challenging. Plenty of drink stations and Marshals along the way Date of review: December 1, 2012
In short: As always a challenging undulating course, very well organised with friendly marshals and runner. Particularly windy this year but it wan't unexpected. I'll be back again next year. Date of review: November 26, 2012
In short: Great Organisation as always In full: Well done to everyone at Clowne for another superbly organised race.Must be the sixth time I've done this now and it always seems to be windy!! Finished in 1.33 Will be back next year Date of review: November 26, 2012
In short: Windy In full: Windy, but I knew it would be, didn't like the main road section with the traffic at about 11 miles, tougher 1/2M than I've done in the past but I will be back nexst year. Date of review: November 26, 2012
In short: Well organised, challangeing run In full: Clowne Road Runners do a super job of organising this (and their other events). There's good parking, its very well marshaled, there's the offer of jelly beans at around 10 miles, and when you finish there's biscuits, flapjack and power drinks.
The course itself is a challenge, the wind hinders at times and helps at others. From my point of view hitting the wind at around 11 miles hurt!! Scenery was great.
I did the run in 1994, so its been awhile for me. I'll put it in the calendar for next year though.
Very well done to everyone involved. Date of review: November 26, 2012
In short: best half sround In full: my 2nd clowne half marathon, and for me it still remains the best on the half marathon circuit. well organised, well marshalled, great water stations, good parking, good community centre at the start providing all you could want for pre and post race hospitality. free lucozade and flapjacks outside, very reasonably priced (and massively portioned) cakes and bacon sandwiches inside. i am not being sarcastic when i think that the price for entry to this race should go up - its one of the cheapest around at the moment, and clowne road runners deserve the extra couple of quid per person for the super efforts they put in to making the simple things work so well - and no, i'm not their treasurer! Even the mementos are great - shirt last year, good quality water bottle this!!! Date of review: November 25, 2012
In short: Great value, well-organised half marathon In full: Congrats and thanks to everyone at Clowne Road Runners for putting on a really well-organised event. From parking up to crossing the finish line, everything was how it should be in a road race. Date of review: November 25, 2012
