Great race. Yes not cheap, but much better value than the GNR. I would prefer the fantastic scenery of this race any day, than the dual carriageway running of the GNR.
(Camio and misfit), the flower finished in a time of 1:42:42
The jelly babies were lovely
The race was superb but the goody bag was just pointless. It somehow detracted from the race but it's a minor point at the end of the day.
A fantastic day, agree on goody bag, which was a little limp. towards end the thought of the goody bag (have paid £17) pushed me on a little (yes i am shallow) to a 1.33 finish for my first Hm.
Did see a couple of ambulances, hope everyone was ok, any news?
A great day, my first half marathon. Managed 1 hr 56mins which I was pretty happy with. Got the bug so am now looking at potential races over the next year. Any recomendations?
I liked the way the spectators were caged at the end.
That t shirt was a disgrace for £9 though, the printing is really poor and should have been rejected. But the names thing is a brilliant idea, more races should do it.
It's quite a nice race, but I found it tough going having run only a handful of times in the three months preceeding it.
Unsurprisingly I ran out of steam at 11miles, but still finished in a reasonable (for me) time.
I would be happy, in some cases, if all races charged for T'shirts and then this money being ploughed into the race charity.
But I know not everyone feels the same.
I may be back next year, I may not (as I'm getting married that weekend), but will probably do it again in the future.
Have a look on the Oswestry Olympians Website
