In short: Fantastic Day In full: Fantastic day, how they get the organisation so good amazes me. My second half marathon and i ran a pb of 1:43:52 so very pleased. It's just a great day with a wonderful atmosphere from start to finish. It's a must do race! Date of review: September 19, 2011
In full: It was my first time over this distance and I really enjoyed the whole day.
Before the race I was concerned about the hills, but they were not as fearsome as some made out, I ran 01:50 which is about what I expected. Although I do agree that the latter section of the run alongside the traffic could be improved by closing the lane to traffic. There was plenty of water along the route which was needed as it was a warm day, but there was also more water and a sports drink at the finish.
I thought that the marshals and the overall organisation of the event on the day was excellent. The goody bag was not that exciting, but that’s not why I entered. I’ll certainly be back next year.
