In short: Brilliant In full: A fantastic event, well organised and great support along the route - there was a real community feel with BBQs in front gardens and families bringing out jugs of water! I will be back next year.
I was terribly sad to read of the two fatalities at the race. My thoughts are with the runner's families and friends.x Date of review: October 11, 2010
In short: Excellent marshalls, organisation and momento, great morning out In full: Did the 10 miler but also couldn't find anywhere to rate it. This race had everything you could ask for - well organised, extremely happy marshals despite the rain, plentiful water/gel stations, chip timing, friendly fellow runners, varied scenery, nice medal, mars bar and massages. Thanks! Highly recommended Date of review: October 4, 2010
In short: Loved it! In full: The race lived up to its name and certainly was a challenge but the hills were made all the more manageable by the amazing marshalls - every single one friendly and encouraging. A brilliant run and will definitely be back next year - especially as its a few minutes walk from my front door! Thanks LBAC! Date of review: September 19, 2010
In short: Fast, flat and for a great cause In full: Really enjoyed this race - nice friendly atmosphere, easy and cheap to park and plenty of toilets if you walked a bit further away from the porta-loos and used the park ones. The course was a bit boring by the 4th lap but was very flat and fast and I got a PB so was very pleased, even though the course was a bit long (6.35miles!)
Goodie bag and t-shirt and great to get a text with my time before I even got to the car!
It was expensive but was all for a good cause and would do it again. Date of review: February 15, 2010
In short: Great fun, loved it...but no dogs please! In full: Really freindly, reasonably priced and well organised Boxing Day race, pleasant setting and well supported. My only compliant was that dogs were allowed to accompany runners - when a dog suddenly stopped to do a 'Paula' on the route it caused a pile up of runners behind it and we had to remember to dodge the resulting 'christmas log' for the next few laps! Yuck. Otherwise, fab race and I will be back. Thanks! Date of review: December 27, 2009
In short: Fantasic marshalls, well organised, great for a first timer In full: This was my first half and it was a fantastic event from start to finish. Race instructions were clear, free bus to and from the venue worked well, nice course (although a little more undulating than I expected!), enthusiastic and plentiful marshalls, good track finish and decent medal, mug and two bananas! Well worth the entry fee. Will be back next year! Thanks to all involved Date of review: November 5, 2007
