In short: Fun in the sun In full: Another triumph from Dr Rob.
I've raced the Leith Hill Half a couple of times so I (half) knew what I was letting myself in for. The 3rd quarter (from the turn back up to Leith Hill) seemed the hardest - maybe 20-30K of a marathon always is though.
I love the out and back nature of this event as its great to be able to see, and give a wave/thumbs up/grunt to one another. Date of review: October 24, 2011
In short: Perfect In full: Great weather again for one of my fav races. The new start was really good as it gave spectators the chance to see the whole field in all its crazy glory. I might have to vent my Spartan helmet for next year though as I reckon I lost a couple of Ks in head sweat alone. Class free photos too. Date of review: January 2, 2011
In short: great way to kick off the year In full: A great event run by an amazing family. Well done Dr Robert and Co.
This was my second time racing. My first was 2008 - which I loved but felt a bit bad as I wasn't dressed up. I was, however, fully fancy-dressed up this time in a toga and laurel wreath. Made it even more fun - despite trickier conditions underfoot and lack of stepping stones - which I'm sure makes it longer?. Did better this year too so maybe I should use the toga for all races...
