In short: Grotty weather made it feel like more of an achievement! In full: My first half-marathon. Friendly marshalls and excellent goody bag. Downside was that we only just made it to the start line in time because of the shuttle bus from the showground. Unfortunately there were others still waiting for transport after it had started.

In short: Lovely, friendly town and a nice run In full: The weather was awful, but all those involved were very positive. Lots of encouragement from on lookers. Thanks to the local man who let me park outside his house. Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: Definitely has PB potential and very friendly marshalls and supporters In full: Wet and windy today, otherwise PB must be on the cards. Nice easy route, lovley village for start/finish. Car parking distance from start was off-putting, but apart from that a very good first race. Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: A swift half indeed! In full: Despite the heavy rain and strong winds a good flat swift cause with excellent support at the end but less in the preceeding miles. Lovely t shirt but a slight gripe with the organisation of the "shuttle bus" to the Car park" Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: Great debut for this race! In full: The weather was that bad that I rang up the organisers to see if it was still on!
I knew it was pretty flat and quick but there were plenty of `professional` surprises; lots of signage, good base at the Youth Club, an abundance of cheerful helpers, bottled water at stations, a loud welcome at the finish and a really top goody bag including a much better than the norm t-shirt. And somehow I squeaked a PB!
Hepworth looked like a lovely village and I hope that this event is held again next year and is rewarded with better weather! Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: Very friendly, fast course In full: Good, fast course with a few undulations, mainly at beginning and end. Support around the course despite the conditions was appreciated. Children handing out water and t-shirts almost immediately after crossing the finish line was a nice touch. Date of review: October 3, 2010
