In short: Hilly Half In full: My second Half Marathon, did last years GNR. The hill past Meanwood is a killer, it's worth doing some hill work before this one. Route was a bit confusing around the 7 mile mark but after this it's breeze into the city centre. Even with the hills I beat my GNR time by 10 minutes.
Well organised event although was a bit congested after the finish and took a while to pick up baggage.
In short: Good course but watch the cobbles! In full: Years of lack of investment means the transport infrastructure around Lincoln is woeful. We were stuck in traffic on the A15 and I thought I was going to miss the start of the race.
Quite a nice flat-ish course, lots of support, spectators line just about all of the 10kms. The cobbles at the end are a nightmare, I was glad the weather was good, can't imagine what they would be like in the rain.
Got to say the bit at the end was confusing, could have done with some signs after the finish to direct you into the Runners Village and the baggage reclaim.
In short: A bit hilly for a first timer In full: My first 10k, didn't expect it to be as hilly, should have done some homework. Nevertheless, really enjoyed it, looking forward to running again next year. Date of review: November 5, 2012
