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
In short: The non-optional extras of mud and water this year made it an even better race - marshalls were so supportive esp as they were standing in the wet and cold. Excellent event even with the 2 hills, will be back again next year... Date of review: April 15, 2012
In short: If looking for a fast time a good solid race with no frills, but did have one negative today, see below. In full: Usually there are pens / marker boards for runners to stand at... all the announcer stated was if you are elite stand at the front everyone else stand behind..... all well and good but when you have clearly got runners who are start out at a jog / hour pace they should know where to start or be directed to start futher back in relation to their time, esp club runners who should know better.... whinge over nad can we see pens / marker boards back for next year please (as may stand corrected but they have been used in the past at Eastleigh). Overall still a good race especially if you want a good time.... Date of review: March 25, 2012
In short: Another very well organised race, excellent marshalls, playful hills but still fast and one of the best designed T-Shirts for a long time, thanks you Salisbury for yet another great event. Date of review: March 12, 2012
In short: Seen better organisation and Brewery comes to mind..... Poor alll round today... In full: Fora UKA Bronze event should be better - Delays in starting..... only 1 person on combined late entries / on line entries.
Mile markers well out of position
Total confusion in the finish funnels... will be amazed if get the right result......
Very poor effort for the 65th anniversry race Im sorry to say Date of review: September 18, 2011
