In short: First Half Marathon and loved it! In full: This was my first Half Marathon and I really enjoyed it although the last 6 miles on road were less pleasant than the first 7 on tracks/paths.
Although it is predominantly downhill there are some uphill bits which I actually enjoyed.
Two things that are worth knowing is that the markers count down i.e. 1 mile to go rather than 12.1 miles done and the water stations do not use Mains water i.e. private water supply but treated but can mean odd colour! Date of review: October 21, 2012
In full: Despite the chilly morning and the distinct lack of ladies loos at the start it proved to be a fabulous race. Lots of interesting scenery, one particularly nasty hill, a muddy, lochside single track which made meant that you had to spend a lot of time jumping over big puddles, followed by a lovely, long, mainly downhill, final 10k. Very friendly people, well organised and a superb setting. Only one small negative...I did not like the slippery grassy bit at the finish line! Date of review: October 17, 2012
In short: Awesome Scenery, high lPB possibility a must do HM In full: The views were stunning from start to finish, the first half of race was off road and then onto the road for the second. I'll be back next year that for sure! Date of review: October 17, 2012
In short: Beautiful scenery and almost all downhill!! In full: This race was amazing! The route was really pretty and even the road sections were fine. Support was patchy but lovely when it was there. And it is actually nearly all downhhill - definitely PB possibility!! Entry was a bit steep because we had to take a charity place but I think if we're organised enough next year we could save a bit on this. Organisation was fine, no problems collecting numbers or finding buses. Would definitely recommend this :) Date of review: October 15, 2012
