In short: Poorly organised start In full: Very poor organisation at start, many runners didnt know which way direction the race was going. I paid on the day which meant it didnt get a commorative towel at the end, i doubt the towels cost more than a £1 so why not enough ordered? at end i was made to feel left out as i got nothing to show i finished. The course was ok but very little atmosphere and a little boring repeating the same course 3 times. I wont be running this again. Date of review: May 16, 2011
In short: Unusual course In full: A strange course spending much of it in and around an aerodrome, but it seemed to work ok as there was little conjestion during the race, except for the first mile which was very slow due too a narrow course. Parking was ok if you got there early but i imagine it could be difficult if you were running late. Overall i would be happy to run this again. Date of review: November 17, 2008
In short: Lovely course, dodgy organsiation. In full: There couldnt have been a better way to spend a Sunday morning. Lovely fast course and nice scenery. Slightly disorganised start with cars still trying to get up the road we were about to run down, start delayed by about 12 minutes. Overall though a very pleasent experience.

In short: The most perfect course, except for that hill near the end In full: This was the second time i ran this, normally i the weather can be bad but on Sunday it was perfect, the scenery around the course gave you goosebumps, i only wish i had taken a camera. Its not a big race in terms of runners, but just enough so you dont feel isolated. The spectators are quite thin on the ground, but when you do come across them they really make you feel special.
I dont really mind that hill near the end, it certainly makes a talking point after the race.
WELL DONE TO THE ORGANISERS AND THE PEOPLE OF NORTH WALES, i will be back. Date of review: November 1, 2006
In short: A good course but spoilt by the weather In full: A decent half marathon course but not suited for the weather conditions as the grass sections became pretty unstable under foot. Organisation was good and in better weather would have made it a better day. Overall though a tough day but glad i did it. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Fantastic race In full: I have only one complaint which was that i missed most of the mile markers because they were hidden behind spectators. Everything else was perfect from the warm up to the finish. Well done to everyone involved. Date of review: October 9, 2005
In short: Really well orgnised event In full: Good organisation, excellent drink stations, start and finish areas. Course is challenging but so that it should put off the first timers. Shame about the bit of the route that takes you into the narrow underpass near the end. Date of review: September 13, 2005
In short: Fantastic race In full: Yes it was hot, you all knew it would be hot, so stop moaning. True runners except the challenges and just get on with it. Well done to all those who ran with a smile on thier face. See you next year. Date of review: July 12, 2005
