In short: Fantastic race In full: This was my first half, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The organisation was superb, there were friendly marshalls and cheering locals all around. Lots of water available, and a lovely momento at the end.
I was worried about silver street after reading previous years reviews, and although it was quite steep it wasn't nearly as bad as i'd imagined!
Thank you somerac for a fantastic day! Date of review: June 20, 2007
In short: Well organised, friendly, excellent day out In full: This was my first race, and I was very impressed with the organisation and the wonderful atmosphere (plenty of people cheering us on). The medal, t-shirt and (2) goody bags were fab.
The only complaint I had was people ignored the time boards and there were an awful lot of slower runners that started by the sub 45 - sub 50 min boards, which meant had to spend most of the race trying to get past people on a very narrow course, just to make the finishing time I was aiming for.
Overall though, i'd recommend this race, I had a really good day out :-)
