In short: Hilly, scenic, well organised race In full: Great race and very enjoyable. Only fault was the tacky towel given as the reward at the end. I know many seasoned runners get sick of medals (not me) and T-shirts but a towel....please!!! Date of review: January 9, 2006
In short: Wet, windy but worth it In full: The bus to the start from the car park was a pain but well organised. The hall seemed a little small for the number of people.
As for the course itself, I really liked it. It was varied and interesting and I personally like all the underpasses and windy routes. It keeps me focused. The marshalling was top notch. There were loads of smiley people in yellow telling you where to go and giving encouragment. Thanks to all of them. Date of review: November 6, 2005
In short: A tough half marathon but well worth doing In full: Great race. Unique and well run. Highly recommended but not for the faint hearted. Some of the hills go on forever. Date of review: July 17, 2005
In short: Nice race with some interesting hills In full: It was very hot when I ran it and they managed to have plenty of water stations and didn't run out of water with everyone taking two cups and several sponges. Well done. Date of review: June 20, 2005
