In short: Expensive...and no water at end :( In full: Great race, but very expensive parking, and NO WATER at the end was absolutely appalling. They surely knew how many entrants there were, therefore have this amount of bottles of water at the end, simple eh? I was going to die from thirst but a very, very kind runner who had some water in his bottle kindly gave me the remains. Terrible...the organisers should be ashamed of themselves.

In short: Barrack o'bummer! In full: Come to the jewel of the South coast. Seaside, no, you don't want to look at that, we will make you feel like a genuine 'squaddie', 'round and 'round the derelict barracks. Seriously though, the Marshalls were very encouraging, clapping hand urging to the last ,somehow I managed a PB. Will be back next year if they haven't put me in a more secure establishment.
In short: Novice enjoyed the experience. In full: Those little hills just kept coming. Not enough to break the spirit but challenging and no long boring staights. Beautiful countyside. Felt safe throughout, away from traffic. Enjoyed every minute, thanks to the organisers and marshalls.
In short: Excellent in all aspects In full: Fantastic race, pretty flat and fast, great support and marshalling. All in all one of the best half marathons I've done - will defintely be back next year. Date of review: September 16, 2008
