In short: The race itself was great fun In full: But to hear people had died was terrible too many people as the abulances couldnt get through quick enough Way too big makes it dangerous wont be doing again as its too hard to get out the place Date of review: September 20, 2005

In short: My first 1/2 marathon - great race cannot wait to do it again!! In full: It is true what they are saying on here the dodging people etc is really soul destroying. They should have a seperate begining line further back in the same way that the people who have run for 10yrs or so have and be supervised by Marshalls. It could be done in stages e.g expected time sub 2hrs, sub 3hr, sub 4 and fun runners/walkers This should be explained when entering. I know it wont stop all of them but a little organisation in this area would be for the better. Apart form that its an excellent race and cannot wait to do it again!! Date of review: July 15, 2005
In short: would not advise for a beginner In full: The hills never ended, no time to recover from one before the next one. Parts of the course were unrunable especially the sand!!!!(horrible!)Not a race for the faint hearted the best bit was the last mile or so was able to run properly was able to enjoy that bit!! Glad it hadnt rained!!!!!
In short: This was one of my first races id ever taken part in as a beginner!! In full: Good race - nice to do some evening races for a change!! cannot wait to run this race again !! Date of review: May 31, 2005
