In short: Good value for money however people running with dogs and also the thin width to run through at certain points and over roots and forest obstacles made it very potential to get injuries. Date of review: March 19, 2013
In full: Marshalls were really encouraging and friendly in and around the park, was wearing headphones so couldnt hear them but judgeing by there animation they did a great job.
Was a shame the roads werent closed off as doesnt help running into car fumes but were warned about this prior to the race. Unfortunately could have done with a few more mashalls in the more out of the way places and lanes though as i saw one women desperately trying running back on her self to find someone to try and get medical attention for her friend who had quite a nasty gash on her arm and a injured ankle/leg.
In full: Briliantly organised from start to finish with really good contact and communication throughout especially via email and twitter (loving the re-tweets). All water stations manned well and very friendly. Unfortunately i did have to ask a marshall for directions as i ran to him as not all being very vocal or animated in directions. Sadly thought the support on the way was one of the worst i have encountered :(. Only really disappointment though is still the lack of official race time coming to me (now over 24h) only ever had to wait this time once before all my other times are with me in a matter of hours so if anything i'd say thats the only thing that really needs working on.

In short: My first half marathon ran so will always be special. Well organised that captures the imagination of the whole city. Lovely scenery with a mixtures of different challenges . Date of review: September 8, 2012
