In full: I ran this race today - 25th Sept 2011 - but couldn't select 2011 in the options.
Nice place to run, great finish and hills were not too bad. The marshalls were helpful and the hospitality area was ok.
Start time of 1pm is odd and I think I ate too late!
Main complaints however are the water cups used instead of bottles - despite warning us in the runners pack not to pour water 'bottles' over us, which indicated that we would be given bottles. Cups either slow down or soak, and I really feel that with so many runners, the organisers could have stretched to buying bottles of water for runners. Especially on a hot day - which it was today...there were no extra water supplies or the showers also promised in the runners pack.
The goody bag was shocking - in fact no bag... a medal, mars bar, sports drink and finally the bottle of water! I even had to buy my own race T-shirt....
When I compare this all to the Cardiff half marathon, there is no comparison. It is for these reasons, that I will not be entering this race again. Date of review: September 25, 2011
