In short: Lovely run and well organised, encouraging support in the villages! In full: Very enjoyable run and glorious weather. Fast start probably caught a few out - a few slow climbs and was slightly caught out by the rise in the final mile but PB of 1:34 in only my 3rd half-marathon. Great preparation for Paris marathon in 3 weeks. Be aware of cars but no problems. Date of review: March 15, 2009
In short: Credit to the organisers and marshalls/volunteers In full: Very well run race and an ideal training route for those in pre-marathon countdown mode. Fast too - beat my PB by about 6 minutes and I was expecting worse hills than I got. Not sure if I will do it again but will certainly recommend it for beginners. Well done organisers.

In short: Great advert for getting into running In full: My first half-marathon & I loved it! Beautiful day, superb route, very, very well organised and just the right amount of people so had no problems with overcrowding unlike the recent Nike 10k.
Very pleased with my time of 1:43:30 though I registered 13.55miles on my garmin!
Definitely keen to do it again next year, the freebies and excellent facilities at the end just capped it off for me. Date of review: October 13, 2008
