In short: Great run in the Derbyshire Countryside In full: Great run, if a little windy at timebut only to be expected. Marshalls were excellent as well as some supporters who kept popping up in various places. Only thing to watch out for are the few mindless mountain bikers who think they own the trail, but most were fine.
In short: Good run, great finish in Pride Park stadium In full: Good run, great atmosphere, good support around lot of the run, orange slices at the cathedral quarter was nice and welcoming. Only downside the main drink station bit of a shambles and the goody bag no goodies unless you like leaflets. Date of review: April 4, 2011

In short: Great race all the way In full: Great race, getting more popular each year, marshalling good with plenty of support all the way round.

In short: Great atmosphere, but people should respect it as it is a half marathon. In full: Great atmosphere to run in when you can get going, a lot of people though think they do not need to train very much, how wrong they are which probably shows in the sad deaths. Other than that what a run to be in the residents on the run encourage and cheer thank you to all of them. Date of review: October 3, 2006
