In short: Great little well organised event, marshalls so very supportive, hills not so!!!! In full: This is a great event, but it is not easy (esp the heat and the hills) the marshalls were all so very encouraging with good clear directions and support too. This is no PB course, but has stunning views of the local area, all in all excellent race.... (did get a litle stressed as arrived late and had few directions in the sports centre as to where registration was, but that is a very minor point for improvement next year.... 9.5 out of 10 for me....

In short: The funnel marshall was abusive to runners..... Gone from being Chip last year to no chip this year, slow results In full: wish I had done my local 10k today. Could not believe the abuse the finish marshall was giving to runners to keep in order (hope the race referee noted this). Very little info on website, still no results on line.... not overly impressed with the orgainstion at all today, may have to think twice about coming back.... On a good note all other marshalls were excellent, and the route and location is great. Date of review: May 19, 2013
In short: Simple, 1 very big hill some flat with mud and water and ruts followed by another big up hill and a lovely downhill finish, great support, very well organised with great support from the marshalls too. Date of review: April 27, 2013
In short: Todays Marshalls MADE the race - it was cold wet and windy and horrible, but all the marshshalls were on top drawer with their support In full: Top race / plod very hard in the conditions but treat it for what it is and its a Spectacular race... Date of review: February 10, 2013
In short: Very good small club race, well organised, will be back again next year In full: One slight problem with the mailing of envelopes, all sorted via email and a nice apology from the RD on the day. Thanks all. Date of review: December 9, 2012
In short: Cannot argue with a 9 sec PB...... Chuffed, as usual Harldley Runners do not dissapoint with excellent organisation and fantastic marshals. In full: Do not be decieved, this is not an easy course, but it is a great course, esp if like me you like rolling courses, I run faster and better on these type of courses and love it.
The RD did a great job, thanks to you and your team for a great event, I will be back next year (again). Date of review: October 14, 2012
In short: small things like the MILE MARKERS 1 and 4 so out by a full .2m - unacceptable for a race of this quality - tried reporting it to RD who siad well done on a sub 5mm and siad garmins are always out.... Im not capable of a sub 5mm In full: Apert from this with the mile markers, this is an exceptional race with good PB potential, the memento was unique this year in a golden shoe, nice I like that.
Not sure about the compact start this year, but the finish area much better and less congested than previous years. As usual the marshall were excellent. Date of review: September 16, 2012
In short: All in all a very well ran club event for a decent half marathon.... a long (but not steep) hill at 4-5m and a drag at 10-11m, but still my overall PB course and favourite Half. Date of review: August 29, 2012
