In short: Undulating is the word to bear in mind! In full: A good run; rather a late start and packed in with the 10k bunch (would be nice if they could split the two races). One lap of the very pretty village then out onto the long roads; bearing in mind when you're running downhill at one point you'll be running back uphill when you turn and come the other way! But a PB for me so very pleased. Date of review: September 18, 2013
In short: Well organised countryside race but underlating verging on hilly! In full: Nice well organised countryside half along mostly traffic free roads with lots of marshalls. The relatively small field can result in gaps between runners so a bit of a time trial feel.
The route is underlating verging on hilly - my garmin recorded 670ft of climbing - so not the easiest place to PB
Entry fees went towards Hospice hence my comment on value
Probably would run again if not clashing with other events Date of review: September 17, 2012
In short: run for the hills... In full: WOW..they wasn't joking when they said undulating. Especially liked the start of the race round the village, past the houses and the residents. Seemed like lots of runners in the race until I turned right for the HM route and then seemed liked hardly anyone. Shame there was no goody bag at the end but then again, it is for a good cause. Was only 3 mins off a PB..even with all those hills :) Date of review: September 19, 2011
In short: Nice introduction to half-marathon running!! In full: Pros: Seemed a well organised racing venue with the half-marathon runners starting with the 10k runners for first 3-4 miles. First half for me & would do it again. Cons : Challenging hills (do not underestimate them) and lack of a Goodie Bag for the half marathon runners - it appears only the 10k runners and the inital few half marathon runners got one.
