Great race, my first half-marathon, but I came in well ahead of my expected time.

I was wondering whether the drizzle contribute to so many people getting PBs. I find it lets you go that little bit faster before you start blowing up...

Sorry, posted against the wrong event - ignore me!

Congratulations on an excellent event. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Very well and cheerfully marshalled.

Constructive criticism? Your funnel at the end should have narrowed and run on longer so that runners arriving together are pushed into single file. It would have helped the poor ladies on the finish line no end

Looking forward to next year

What happened to the proposed photographer?

Was this suposed to be the guy from Prosport photos?

Alan, Unfortunatley the photographer let us down at the last minute and it was very dificult to get another with less than a weeks notice.

ok cheers... least I didn't get a photo of shock horror as I hit the water... maybe next year then. It was good!

If you enjoyed running "Over the Hills" then you may like to try the "Shaw&Whitley Stampede" that I am organising with Avon Valley Runners over one of my six mile training routes around the village. More details can be found here and of course online entry from Runners World.
