In short: Loved it ! In full: ....As much as last years race (which due to oddities in the calendar was actually run in January 2005) The down side for me was that it was my worst time this year (all other races have seen me set PBs). The organisation again was wonderful and I look forward to starting the New Year by raising a glass of red to all runners everywhere,whatever their times and "abilities" !!. See you next year !!
In short: Another cracking morning !! In full: Yet again a wonderful time. The weather was just right and even the early start time isn't really a problem (except that my wife is working and now I'm back home I've got the evening meal to prepare and the ironing to do !.Bet Paual doesn't have that to contend with !). Hear a few dumb comments about the Stadium finish,it wasn't what they expected etc etc and so and so didn't get that right blah blah).Well to them I say wind it in.Mel James and all the crew involved with the organisation deserve a massive cheer for all their efforts. Well done and thankyou !. Made some new friends on the course and their pacing and mine got us round in PBs !!!. I will be back !!. Hello to all who have been posting on the forum page for this race.See you all next year and hopefully at other races as well ???. Date of review: October 9, 2005
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
