In short: Challenging In full: On a calm day it ticks the all the box's. The start was mild and sunny but at the top of the hills the wind was relentles and at times, the "sting" of the rain was painful. it's a tough challenge but not impossible (with a few up-hill walks) and the scenery is breath-taking.

In short: Great weather and fantastic support. Very nice T-Shirt and Medal In full: A great half marathon the crowds were fantasic -I would like to say that it was very sad to hear that a fellow runner collapsed and died near to the end, our thoughts go out to his family.
In short: Excellent red hot day - i'll be back to take on the tunnel In full: A really good time-trial format half marathon which should be good for PB hunters - me, I'm a plodder wh is happy to finish inside of 3 hrs. There are a few tests on the way - The Tunnel is 375yards of steady pace, the bridges look tiny but have a wicked side to them and this years special was a fire hose hurdle. Everyone was in good spirit, including SANTA and loads of helpful Marshalls (thanks guys) and what a finish line, just appears out of nowhere! See you all next year, it's already in my diary.

In short: Go Yeovil Go! Well done to all involved. In full: This was my first half Marathon. A big queue for registration was a bit off-putting but melted away in no time. The rock band was a nice touch to get you in the mood. As a first timer, the distance took its toll and the "killer hill" at halfway slayed me! Date of review: March 28, 2011
In short: Excellent first race and challenging enough to come back In full: This was my first experience of running with the pack. I will do it again. If there is one negative point it is getting away afterwards with 2000 cars and one small exit - make a day of it and don't rush to get off next time! Date of review: October 21, 2010
