In short: This race has lots of potential but is seriously let down by organisation In full: This race has serious potential to be excellent - the course is fast, the location wonderful and it's not too big. There are a lot of easy wins for the organisers - have a finish line, offer water at finish, more marshals on the course, organise the start better.
This race has real potential to be a pre-Xmas special. MKAC could make a real name and grow a very profitable race. Date of review: November 27, 2005
In short: Organisation fantastic, quick course and great T shirt. In full: This is a great event. My first time. I've run 5 half marathons this year and this is definitely the best. A very special race. Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Excellent organisation. Marshalling good and truly traffic free In full: A good race. Weather not excellent but well organised. The start needs sorting out - slower runners arriving late were joining at front. Date of review: October 30, 2005
In short: Grown too big? In full: The water stations need to be earlier. The first seemed to be around 5 miles. On a hot day this was too late. I think the procong is getting steep and the numbers too many. The atmosphere is great but don't expect a PB Date of review: September 19, 2005
In short: Some problems to work on In full: Two major problems. First, the start was delayed and then not delayed and we had to stand in sun for 15mins when called to satrt. Second, the water ran out. Not acceptable. Date of review: June 26, 2005
