In short: First Half Marathon and loved it! In full: This was my first Half Marathon and I really enjoyed it although the last 6 miles on road were less pleasant than the first 7 on tracks/paths.
Although it is predominantly downhill there are some uphill bits which I actually enjoyed.
Two things that are worth knowing is that the markers count down i.e. 1 mile to go rather than 12.1 miles done and the water stations do not use Mains water i.e. private water supply but treated but can mean odd colour! Date of review: October 21, 2012
