In short: PB potential and free beer makes a perfect combo! In full: Fantastically well organised, Flat (therefore Fast) course along quiet roads in beautiful countryside. Nice momento (a branded half-pint glass), better still the 2 x 70 kegs on offer to finishers afterwards.
Definitely recommend this race to others, fast and definite PB course. Not too congested either with little under 300 runners.
Will be back for more....beer :) Date of review: September 16, 2014
In full: Love small and friendly races like this. My second Wissey HM knocking 2 mins off my PB (unchipped) and 11 mins off my first time round in 2010. Special thanks to Ed (Mr Motivator) and Mark from Fakenham for keeping my pace going in the middle stages! 1.45 next time guys!! Date of review: September 2, 2013
In short: Flat, that is not a hill at 8 miles people of Norfolk, and friendly race In full: Have run this twice and it is a very pleasant race. Well organised with good marshalling. Flat course which will definitely give a few a good PB. Quiet country roads so the occasional car & tractor is not a problem but means little support out on the run. However a good welcome back into the finish. Worth a look for anybody. Date of review: September 3, 2012
In short: Excellent course , very scenic with a PB potential In full: Having been running for 4 years and entering races within Norfolk, I had yet to give Wissey Half a try and I was certainly not disappointed. Excellent organisation, a delightful scenic course using all country back lanes, meaning I hardly saw a car! The course had a couple of climbs, but it is definetly a PB potential. Cost of the race was only £12 and all runners who completed got a given a bottle of cider. What do again! Date of review: September 2, 2012
In short: Superb, in every way! In full: First time at this lovely event. Everything was absolutely super: Very friendly & encouraging marshals, a very scenic and slightly undulating course, very fast race result, and some very yummy cakes as well!! I will most certainly return in the future. A BIG well-done to Ryston Runners! P.S. Don't really like Ale though!! Date of review: September 2, 2012
In short: A fast, flat race with excellent organisation and a beer at the finish In full: This was a very well organised race with fabulous scenery, lots of sunshine, an extremely flat course (my training is in the Yorkshire Pennines so this was a really flat event for me) with friendly competitors and really pretty Norfolk scenery. I took nearly 15 minutes off my previous PB which I had only set 4 weeks earlier at Newark (another flat course) so was extremely pleased. The dedication at the start and 1 minute silence made me really reflect on how lucky I am to be alive, fit and healthy and to treasure every moment with my family and friends. As a mum with a youngest of less than a year my heart really goes out to Jo and her family. Thank you for organising a great race. Date of review: September 8, 2010
