I ran it the year before last as my first half and really enjoyed it. As above, it's not flat but most of the climbs are gradual rather than steep (if memory serves me right) and it's a beautiful route going through little villages. Not the biggest race out there but I really liked it. I seem to remember getting a mug as a race memento instead of a medal or t shirt which made a nice change!
thanks guys that's great - I'm happy with hills! glad to hear it's a friendly race, atmosphere is really important! just did the Bath Half and looking for the next challenge. so, just the training to get round to now ;
Ive done it a couple of times. Pretty course, with hills, but the field can get strung out and it was lonely one time. BUT.... it's the British Masters' 2014 HM championship race this year, so expect a few fast old gits!!!!
