In short: Very hard going - but very good fun for it In full: The route is challenging, the majority of it was uphill, or at least it seemed that way to me and my legs. However, the inclines were not particularly steep, but they were long and varied. Thankfully the scenery and general supportiveness of other runners keep you going. Highly recommended, but do make sure you train first! Date of review: June 16, 2009
In short: Love the race, but where were the bananas? In full: This is the third time I have run this race (and my worst result - though thats entirely down to me). I think it is a great course, really challenging, and it always seems to have the friendliest fellow runners, very encouraging.
This year though I felt there must have been a lack of upfront money perhaps? Did the credit crunch crunch all banana's before anyone finished?
I've never been that fussed about goodie bags, but a banana at the end of a half marathon is something I really look forward to from about 4 miles to go
