In short: Great PB potential and great atmosphere In full: Really flat race, few corners, cracking atmosphere and great potential for a PB. Maybe recommend the event organisers don't have the bag drop all the way down near Concorde 2 though Date of review: March 2, 2014
In short: Another fab Brighton Half In full: Fourth time I've run this race and it never disappoints me. Fab weather again this year and great local crowd support. Fantastic medal as well Date of review: February 28, 2014
In short: Fast course - on a day with good weather! In full: Enjoyed the race as hit a PB - in part because the weather was ideal, and also the course works well with undulating in first 4 miles - and of this, downhill from 4m turn which gets the legs turning over for a straight 6m along the seafront. As with most races, need more loos - but compounded by a bottle next area between bags and start Date of review: February 28, 2014
In short: A favourite! In full: This is the third time I have done this race and it continues to be one of my favourites. The route is fairly flat with a few undulations mainly in the first 4 miles. Support is fabulous and the organisation and marshalling was also good.
Only slight criticism is the start area gets very crowded with queues for the loos and people walk to and from the bag drop area. There must be a better way of arranging this, maybe by barring non-runners from the start area.
Otherwise a great race. Date of review: February 28, 2014
In short: My second favourite half In full: I love this run. I'm probably jinxing things by saying that the weather has been perfect every time I have run this. I got to the start quite early so didn't experience problems mentioned in other reviews. This is my third year and my second PB on this course (we just don't mention last year ...). I'll be back!

In short: Great weather, nice run, poor start organisation In full: The organisation this year didn't seem to be as good as 2013, the loo queues were ridiculous and lots of non runners in lines. Not easy to see how to get in the right pen and no-one to help. Once the race started the water/drink stations were better this year and all the volunteers on the course were great, especially after mile 8. Weather couldn't have been better. Distinct lack of toilets along the course this year. A good second run, got a pb but I think I'll try another half in future. Date of review: February 20, 2014
