In short: Inspirational! In full: I did this last year - it was my first half marathon then - it was wonderful in every respect. This year it was a all a bit bigger and better except the course which could notn be surpassed. The weekend was a real package - the Saw Doctors, pre-race Pasta, a wonderful race and a Ceilidh that we will remember forever. Well done to Campbelltown. Date of review: June 22, 2007
In short: Just Brilliant In full: I always worry when I run a race one year and love it, that when I go back the next year, it's not as good as I remember. Not so with this one - fabulous from start to finish.
The trip across the dunes was tough, but the breathtaking scenery once you got out there really took your mind off your legs.
I've run lots of races where you pass locals who don't have a clue what's going on - not so in Campbeltown where everyone had a cheer and a "well done" for the runners.
Another one to add to the Permanent Fixtures list on my racing calendar! Date of review: June 5, 2007
In short: Contrary to the weather forecast the sun shone for the second year in a row! In full: Did the 10k and really enjoyed. A great view all around town with spectators to encourage you on your way. Nice out and backs along the coast path meant that no-one was on their own for very long. Was able to encourage pals as we crossed paths. Date of review: May 31, 2007
In short: What can i say, fanatastic event. In full: We travelled from West yorkshire for this race and were not disappointed. Well worth the trip, everyone should do this race once. The marshalls and organisation were brilliant. The pipe band at the start was a great touch. It was if the whole of the town and given it their full support. Well done!!!!!!

In short: Second time I've run it. Hugely enjoyable once again and I broke my pb by over 4 mins. Off-road/Beach section tough but otherwise undulating roads. Fantastic party atmosphere at finish and organisers do a fabulous job. Date of review: May 30, 2007
