In short: Very well organised and a good challenge In full: A very reasonable price for a superbly organised, demanding race. Good to see the organisers had taken into account the issues from last year where the baggage collection was quite a walk away from the finish line, especially as it was absolutely freezing! I really enjoyed the race (once I warmed up) and the great support throughout. The hills really took their toll though, not that any of them were particularly atrocious, just that there weren't enough flat bits for my poor old legs! Date of review: February 25, 2013
In short: An excellently organised half marathon which minimised the problems with the awful weather In full: The organisation at the start of the race was absolutely fantastic, the weather was truly awful but there were no problems staying dry and warm at the stadium before the race. The race director's did a fantastic job keeping everyone undercover until the race was ready to start then got everyone into position promptly and off to a smooth start.
The course itself was flat and so great for PB's, I managed to take 40 seconds off my previous best.
Special mention to the marshalls as well who were plentiful and very encouraging.
Will definitely do this again next year. Date of review: November 5, 2012
