In short: Loved it - back again next year In full: Second time running this race, and as others have said, very muddy and the wind particularly in the last couple of miles was challenging. I wore road shoes which added a bit of extra challenge, still managed a PB somehow! Back again next year - well done organisers and everyone else involved. If you want a big city tarmac marathon then this isn't for you. If you want decent scenery, a bit of mud, gravel, shingle and some tarmac, give it a go! Date of review: December 28, 2012
In short: friendly event, great scenery, well organised, can't go wrong In full: Second time I've done this, and it really is a lovely low key race. You're pretty much guaranteed of finishing in the top 100, and all the money raised goes to a good cause (a local hospice I think). Date of review: May 25, 2011
In short: Excellent first running - will do it again - thanks for organising In full: Really enjoyable, but very muddy in parts - added to the fun but not to the chance of a good time - I think, if it's dry, this could be a fast race. Friendly marshalls, nice route, definite one to do again. Date of review: February 21, 2010
In short: Lovely low key event with stunning scenery and 'interesting' hills In full: Really enjoyable low key event (no memento), friendly & efficient organisers at which all were welcomed. I finished near the back (not many hills to practice on in Portsmouth), but great fun, even with the steps and hills around the Pembrokeshire coast path, and with scenery like this, it doesn't matter what time you finish in!
Definitely worth doing if you're on holiday in the area - and guaranteed PB material - how many other 4.6 mile races are there?? Date of review: June 1, 2009
In short: fantastic again - and I got a pb! In full: Definitely one to do every year, lovely scenery, relaxed atmosphere and friendly marshalls, good course with enough slight ups and downs to keep it interesting - beat my PB by 5 mins! Date of review: March 15, 2009
In short: lovely scenery, really nice course, friendly marshalls, really nice mementoo In full: Definitely want to do this again, a really nice course, clearly marked, lots of friendly, encouraging marshalls, scenery along the solent, and a really nice paperweight as a memento - well done everyone invloved, hope I can be back again next year Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: what a great event - my first race for 26 years, really well organised In full: really enjoyable, lovely scenery, kids runs as well, bouncy castle, home made cakes - this was my first run, and despite the hill at the 3 mile mark, I'll definitely be back next year!
