In short: excellent race In full: First time running this race and I wasn't dissapointed, organisation and marshalls excellent, also supporters great. Could have done with more toilets as quite a long queue, even with getting there early. Great cakes. Date of review: February 24, 2008

In short: great way to spend a sunday morning In full: excellent course, plenty of mud, loads of puddles, great marshalls and organisation. The hardest bit is the flat section along the river bank into the wind. Date of review: January 20, 2008
In short: excellent race 10/10 In full: Always a great atmosphere at this race and a definate pb course, unfortunately not this year as the wind was slightly strong. A big well done to all and thank you to all marshalls for braveing the elements.
In short: a proper challenge In full: the weather added to the challenge, cold driving rain, very windy up to the monument, everything went a bit numb with the cold. Great race and a huge thank you to all marshalls especially the ones in the exposed bits. Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: WOW In full: My 3rd year for this race and I did get a pb this time. Everything fantastic, atmosphere, organisation, marshalls, course. I slowed down in the last mile or so as I didn't want it to end, should be twice a year, thanks to all.
In short: Great race In full: My second time for running this race and a definate must for your calendar. Organisation, marshalls, course, tea and cakes all excellent. Brought 3 friends for their first multi-terrain race and they loved it. Quite a hard race and well worth it. Date of review: November 4, 2007
In short: great race with a few niggles In full: Excellent course, great marshalls, superb support, a definate pb course, nice start and finish. Nowhere near enough portaloos, congestion in and out of City Hall very bad and not too good getting out of castle. Goody bag great, on the whole a lovely day. Date of review: October 14, 2007
In short: great race great course In full: Really great atmosphere, plenty of loo's in village, baggage storage excellent. Millenium Square great for before and after race, great friendly atmosphere. Well done to all marshalls and especially the young people who manned the drinks stations, you all did great. Goody bag was less than impressive, and the colour coded starting pens didn't work either, different colours all over the place. A bit congested for first couple of miles, but what do you expect with a big city half. Date of review: September 10, 2007
