In short: Not run here for four years due to other events.Nothing has changed.It's still one of the best ! In full: It's a shame this race for me has coincided with the KRUF,GNR and Cardiff Half in previous years.At last Welsh AAA seem to have things right and hopefully there'll be no more clashes. It is a superb race of outstanding quality. Well marshalled,organised,good water stations and a lovely view of Swansea Bay along the way. I'll be back !! Date of review: September 25, 2005
In short: Another well organised race. In full: Extremely wonderful day. Very well organised. More portaloos would be welcome at the start next year please. Crowd support wonderful and well run water stations helped make a great run even greater !. See you next year !! Date of review: September 6, 2005
In short: A lovely end to a busy week ! In full: I love these type of events as much as the big atmosphere occassions.A good mix of all abilities,some very friendly rivalry that sets the next race in the series up nicely. Roger and the team from Run and Become do an excellent job. Roll on next months 3 miler ! Date of review: May 21, 2005
In short: I know it's nearly time for this years "slog",but it's worth mentioning last year anyway. In full: A lovely run this,no mass start,no crowds but still plenty of support around the lanes of the second most beautiful part of the World !. Well worth doing,despite the climb that eems to go on for 8 miles. Excellent facilities at the start/finish and very well organised. It may sound a bit peverse,but I'd rather this "half" stayed exactly as it is,low key but still very worthy and worthwhile doing for a challenge.
In short: A good race and time,slightly disappointing with organisation at finish. In full: The one plus point is the out and back over the Bay barrage.Bit crowded at the finish.I heard a few unsavoury comments about having to queue for the paper cups of water this year.It was a pity that there was just one poor little girl on her own doing her best,maybe the organisers should go back to bottles in the goody bag ?. Any chance of baggage storage for next year please ?. I will be back for all that.Local races deserve local support !!. Date of review: May 2, 2005
In short: Great day again.Only ticked "No" because I'm not doing another Marathon.Honest ! In full: Yet again the greatest day out for all Marathon runners. Organisation,marshalls,First Aid,support from the crowd simply bloody magnificent. Thank you to everyone involved. Hello to anyone who remembers me (No 8082). Enjoy the rest !!.And enjoy the rest of your lives !!!. Date of review: April 18, 2005
In short: Despite some niggles,still a good race. In full: I agree with the comment about the confusion and poor segregation of predicted finishing times.Yet again the start of another class race was spoiled by some cretins who have no idea about where they should be starting and having to barge past some who were clearly only there for a walk is becoming a real pain.Perhaps for next year preferential places should be offered to sub 2 hour finishers from this year ?.I don't think that is an unreasonable request. The support was terrifc this year and a big thank you should go to all the marshalls and those involved at the drinks stations.Well done !!. Not sure about the pasta after the race,I still think Saturday evening is better. The runners village was a good idea and the abundance of toilets was equal to the Great North Run. Bath has a special place in my heart and I've only missed it twice in 14 years,once through illness and last year when my entry didn't get accepted. I do think this is now one of my all time favourites,easily comparing with the Glasgow Half for atmosphere and organisation.Not quite Great North Run or London,but getting there.

In short: Very well organised and very good support.Good to see some new faces as well. In full: Hopefully this will become a permanent fixture (I notice that a date has already been set for next year). Even got home in time to do some ironing ! Date of review: February 27, 2005
