In short: An expensive race, but well worth the money In full: I've never run a bupa run, so was looking forward to this. And what a great day, crowds were excellent, organisation was excellent, this may just turn out to be a favourite event. Look forward to running again. Date of review: October 25, 2010
In short: Went to windsor with a cold, come away with a newPB In full: Apart from the nightmare getting out of the carpark, a good day. Pratically flew around and knocked 4 minutes off my half marathon time. Date of review: September 26, 2010
In short: love the jelly babie couple. In full: Great for london prep, and great seeing the jelly baby couple. I like crowds of people to give you that boost, very happy with time and ran 18.5 miles before i decided on a short walk run session. But i don't think i'll do it again, just too quiet for me. Good indicator though, and now looking forward to london. Date of review: March 28, 2010
In short: First half that involved shingle In full: Overall a nice race, was flying until i hit the mud and shingle but still managed a PB so cant complain. My only gripe would be, they need more toilets and another water station. The jelly babies were nice, so thanks to the marshalls, they do this at reading but they end all over the place, this time i actually had some. Date of review: February 21, 2010
In short: I wonder if organisers actually run In full: When i reached the first drinks station, and it was empty i feared for the worst. Then as we approached 16 and no water and when you noticed on the other side still no water you do panic a litte. Thankfully i hydrated well before and had my running bottle with me with energy drinks. I think they had enough water but it was badly distributed.
In short: the heat sapped me of any pb potential. In full: I will run this again, but in february please. I love the heat, but this was a killer. Good support all round, and a free shower as well lovely. Date of review: May 24, 2009
In short: Dodge the cars In full: A crowded start, so takes a while to get going. More marshalls needed as some cars were pulling out without a care in the world. Ran a pb so pleased with that, but will not make a return trip next year. Date of review: May 17, 2009
