In short: This race just keeps getting better each year In full: This race is always an excellent and well organised event. Every year the Helsby team look to make improvements and the latest one was to get the chip for the timing attached to the race number. No more struggling to attach one to your shoe laces. The 30th anniverasay Buff in the goody bag was also a nice touch. Date of review: January 23, 2011
In short: One of the best Half Marathons around. Superb organisation, Great Support, Excellent Coursee In full: Having raced many half marathons up and down the country I can safely say this race has to be at the top of my list. Iâ€™ve competed in it for many years and it gets better every year. The organisation is excellent, the support superb and the goody bag keeps growing. This years bottle of Half Marathon Ale was the best yet.
Itâ€™s not the quickest race, with the hilly section in the middle, but once past the 11 mile mark you know itâ€™s down hill all the way to the finish. This fact helps both tired legs and mind. Once over the line itâ€™s back to the clubhouse for tea and biscuits or something a little stronger if required.
