In full: Good course,with a hill from about 9 to 11 miles that i didn't really notice until i realised i was tiring and slowing. It crept up on you! Thankfully the last 2 miles were downhill so i was able to pull myself together for the final push. Well marshalled and organised though if the weather had been like 2 weeks previous the car park[an uncut grass field] would have been impossible to use[organisers are you listening?].Nice looking t shirt as well. A good day. Date of review: May 15, 2012
In short: Well organised, friendly, beautiful route In full: Great race, lovely friendly atmosphere, well organised, very supportive marshals and water stations.. Car parks busy but organised. Undulating route, uphill miles 10-11 but that allows a lovely downhill 2 miles at the end. Got a PB too so very pleased. Thank you to the organisers. Date of review: May 15, 2012
In short: Great race once again In full: Another great Hinckley Half. Well organised and a delightful course. Plenty of drinks, good crowds, nice energy bar and tshirt at finish. A bigger event than previous years - possibly nearing its numbers limit, as course was tight for first 2 miles, and car park was at capacity. Will definitely be back Date of review: May 14, 2012
In short: Well organised, great course In full: organisation was very good, course was well marshalled and excellent number of drinks stations. Although some comments refer to a hill it was more like a little bump and they seemed to come up at just the right stage each time to fractionally change your running style which helps with the overall muscle usage. Would I do it again - definitely if I am in the area. Date of review: May 14, 2012
In short: Great venue and course In full: Very tight for the first few miles, which turned out to be a positive as it stops you going out too fast. Plenty of drink stations, good mix of runners, somehow managed a p.b. so I'll be back! Date of review: May 14, 2012
In short: Lovely run in the sun In full: Having not done this for a couple o years i gave it another go. New course PB and very well organised run, i'm sure the hill seemed shorter n not as steep as the last time i did it either.
