In short: My first half marathon race, enjoyed every minute of it, nice and flat, well organised. f In full: Great highlight to the Easter weekend. I cannot compare against other races as this is only my second. But the organisation and support was good. The medal was disappointing but lets face it they only collect dust, the memories are what is important, for me anyway! Date of review: April 14, 2009
In short: My first ever race, family loved it, everyone supportive, good way to spend the day. In full: Having just started running I entered for the experience so I don't have any other races to compare with. I was apprehensive to start with as I didn't know what to expect. My wife and son came to watch and had a great experience. My son who is 4 couldn't understand why I didn't win! Well I enjoyed it and came in around 52mins which is a PB based upon my training runs. I am still waiting to see the results as the website hasn't been updated yet. Would have appreciated a race map up front, I did go to the cricket club to view the details but found it to be locked up during the day time.
Anyway a great day had by all, as long as I am fit I will be there next year to see if I can beat my time and place! Date of review: January 4, 2009
