In short: Excellent in every department! In full: I thought it would be hilly but pleasantly surprised by gently undulating terrain. Marshalls were great snd so too were the helpers on the drinks stations. Very pretty villages and lovely scenery. Well done organisers a simply fab day. Date of review: March 13, 2011
In short: Really enjoyable half marathon In full: I had a great run so really enjoyed it. The uphill section in the last mile was hard on tired legs, especially as the course description said a 'flat course'(if its described as flat people expect it to be flat). If that part of the course could be altered to be flat then it would be perfect. It would have been nice to have an energy drink station on the course instead of having to carry your own all the way round. Marshalls were great - thanks it must have been very cold standing out there all that time! Date of review: March 8, 2010
In short: Over priced, inadequately marshalled and lacked atmosphere. In full: Way over priced at £15 and just a medal no T/shirt or goody bag and too add insult a hefty £2 parking fee! The race was inadequately marshalled, little to no support or encouragement along the way and some junctions only marked with small arrows so potential to take wrong track! As this is a new event I hope the organisers can improve as it does have potential. Date of review: November 1, 2009
In short: I'm sure next year's will be better, fingers crossed! In full: Good challenging course with plenty of support along the way. Great Marshalls, thank you. Notes for organisers: Would have prefered water at the 'water stations'instead of that horrible orange stuff which just made your hands sticky ugh!
The long queue after the finish needs sorting out for next year. Standing around soon leaves you feeling chilled and if it had been wet weather we would all be chilled and ill.
The goody bag could be better too!
As for the delayed start, I think there's enough comments so I won't add mine......
This race has potential to be a truly great event and I look forward to all the improvements at next year's event! Date of review: October 4, 2009
