In short: Excellant hard race but great pre marathon In full: Well managed it was like clock work, the weather was hot for the runners, but recovered on the beach with some lunch made a change Date of review: March 28, 2012
In short: Over all well managed worth doing In full: Well managed, but is a same that at times you get people trying to cross the road with there dogs or bikes, also anyone that seem to finish after 2hrs had trouble getting a goody bag Date of review: February 29, 2012
In short: Well organisated, shame about the goody bag In full: Getting to the Baggage area for the pier was not easy as there was a lot people standing around the start/finish line making if difficult getting past them, then there was the charity tents to get past as well, to get round them the runners were moving the barriers to easy the bottle neck. The goody bag l would have expect a cereal bar instead of leaflets'.
On the plus side the route was very good, to get the hills done first when you are still fresh, but you still get a few people in the way of the course which can cause some problems when you are running in a pack.
In short: Very well managed, it gets better every time In full: The race is well managed, and the water stations and marshall's are as always joyly and supported, as for the hill at 7.5 it a killer but when you have reached the top you know at least the worse is over.I have done this half since 200o, its a good half and well managed.
