In short: Super day, fantastic organisation. Great atmosphere! In full: Fantastic organisation, arrived about 9am to a real buzz around the racecourse, a real good vibe everyone seemed to be smiling. (was specail as was on my door step practically)
A great corse which is practically ALL flat and I mean flat. Managed a P.B which made me even happier a good size crowd at the start and finish, plenty of marshalls around the course. Really was superb.
Would like to see this race become a permanent fixture.
Also the brooks tshirt is fantastic not one of the cheap cotton ones a actual running tshirt. All in all a great day. Thanks! Date of review: May 13, 2012
In short: Good day. Great weather, and a p.b! In full: My first half marathon, so didn't know what to expect!
After reading last years reviews about the mile makers, I was abit anxious as was using this for my pace. They seemed ok, mile 10 to 11 are nasty a slow drag up hill. I think I used the expression FFS when I came round the bend and saw it.
I managed 1:22 on my first half so I don't know it it's quick or average but it wasn't too bad. Thanks! Date of review: March 11, 2012
In short: Not a bad race In full: Was an ok day. Organisation good. Only real problem is the course, when exiting the field. With this bring my first race, didn't know what to expect and found my self stuck in an alley way ( at one point I was actually stood still) will hundreds of runners squeezed thru.
Next time I'll be at the front! Date of review: October 22, 2011
