:Looking for a swift half to get into the marathon mode, anyone tel how underlating this is?

How does it compare to The Turkey Trot, Wroksop, Hose, or Robin Hood halfs?

Hilly maybe a strong word but it is quite undulating and testing. theres a 2 mile off road section too. However ive done it 3 or 4 times now and its a fab well organised race.

The 2 mile mile off road section is rather interesting if it's been raining. Very well organised race as well.

A good Half to start the year off , done it twice in the last 3 years and really enjoyed it, ( can be cold )

Seems to set me up nicely for the coming year, see you all there.

Hopefully the snow will go about 2 weeks time and it may be colder still. But thats Ok that Lincolnshire for you.This race is so easy until the fields of mud otherwise its pure speed?

At First we start on the field then on to the road through the Villange then 2 miles of mud(DRY)then all the way on the road towards home

I hope this will help you

I did it last year and the last hill about a mile out turned my legs to jelly.

 Looking forward to it this year.

Haha sorry, at least you're prepared for it now!

Overall it's one of my favourite races I ran so far. Really enjoyable, good atmosphere, and there's always someone up for a supportive chat along the way when the going gets tough!
