In short: Not bad - could be better In full: Some nice scenery and a nice flat course - 2 laps not as bad as expected and the stadium finish is fantastic. Plenty of water & sports drinks available.
I think it probably makes a better half than full, spectators started wandering off second lap, some across the course. Its a bit annoying having to run round slow halfers towards the end, must be really bad for the v fast boys!
Some of the other complaints didn't bother me, congestion wasn't really a big deal & grasscrete & cobbles weren't too bad either. Date of review: October 24, 2006
In short: Excellent again In full: Could have done with more mud this year but it helped the times - I was 7 mins faster! Those who thought that was muddy don't know they're born! Special thanks to the man by the High Moor who told me the footy score. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Owwwwwwwwwwww In full: Fantastic. I even feel guilty about only givin 60 for PB potential as I got mine here. Everything is right out of the top drawer, except maybe that mountain at 21 miles but the view at the top even made that worthwhile (almost).
Great support from all runners and great crowd support for a small race too. I'll be back, assuming I've forgotten about the pain. Date of review: November 1, 2004
In short: Getting better In full: Some people are never happy! Challenging but enjoyable course & great atmosphere, plenty of spectators throughout. Tech T-Shirt is very nice for those who paid the extra. Date of review: October 11, 2004
