In short: My first half-marathon. But certainly not my last!! In full: The good old English weather came out to play and the skies opened! Unfortunatly 10 minutes after i'd handed my waterproof over to Mrs. Darcy at the start line!
Nice course, based on everyone's comments about hills i was expecting this to be tougher than it was. Race was well organised, started on time (with the world's loudest starter pistol!) and the marshalls on the route all had an encouraging word to say. Date of review: November 29, 2009
In short: Worth it for the view alone In full: Great views, perfect organisation, chance to have a bag of chips afterwards to celebrate beating my previous PB by 1min 54secs. As many others have said, the cobbles made the run more challenging but not impossible. KM points were well signposted (except the 5k mark being the wrong way around!). Hope the race happens again next year. Date of review: October 12, 2009
