In short: Grest SUpport In full: Great course, ever changing profile keeps it interesting - there are moans about the hills but they are what makes this half special - nothing worse than running along flat dual carriage way.
Great support from marshals and the "village people" out on the course. Great organisation and for a "big" race good value - will be back again for next year. Date of review: October 10, 2013
In short: Love it - will keep coming back for more In full: Superb organisation, easy to access car park, speedy and efficient number, chip and t shirt collection, encouraging marshals, fantastic support from those lovely people at Cliddesden and Ellisfield, and the final four miles wipe out the pain of the earlier hills. Definitely recommend this one. Date of review: October 9, 2013
