In short: An excellent event, whichi just keeps getting better In full: I'm local to Fleet, and have run this race many times. There are lots of other half marathons on around this time, but I keep coming back as it's just such an enjoyable race. It is a wonderful event, brilliant atmosphere and support during the 2 laps of town. Beautiful countryside. It's always a well organised event but I thought that F&C had managed to up their game even more this year. The extra water station was most appreciated, plentiful supplies of water and the new water pouchers were fine. The new finish line much better placed. Nice goody bag at the end of the race. Extremely well marshalled and very friendly. I also like that F&C are always open to feedback and you can see they try to improve the race each year. How refreshing compared to other races in this area (e.g. Windosr). The only minor grip would be that the medal this year was again a bit dinky and rubbish. Proper bling next year please :-) Well done Penny and all at F&C on another fantastic job! See you next year! Date of review: April 2, 2015
In short: All the the great things you'd expect In full: On the same day as Reading Half, and if this happens again I'd always stick to Fleet. For runners, by runners and you can tell. Date of review: March 26, 2015
In short: Nobody does it better!! In full: Faultless organisation.
Fleet has always been great event, but credit to the organisers that they constantly strive to improve - e.g. pouches this year and straight run to finish. Super atmosphere too.
And great value for money - there are so many events springing up where you're left with the feeling that organiser was only in it for quick buck - Fleet couldn't be further from this as you know that they put event on for the right reasons. Well done Penny and all her crew. Date of review: March 25, 2015
In short: Great race, weather and a bar at the end!!! In full: Great atmosphere in Fleet town, quiet scenic country roads, through lovely welcoming villages and a bar at the end! After rehydrating properly a chilled vino was brilliant. Fast course bar that cruel incline at mile 12 but great race all round. See you next year Date of review: March 25, 2015
