In short: Fantastic organisation - great scenery - In full: Like others have said... Minimum Fuss and excellent execution. You don't have to be a big branded 12,000 participant event to have a great race!
Short toilet queues, no delays in getting my car out of the field afterwards (something I was very worried about given the soft ground), great sports massage afterwards, lots of enthusiastic support.
It is a real credit to the people of the area that they can put on such a great race. And put up with the inconvenience of closed roads - Thank you to everyone.
The course is a great mix of roads, hills, impressive school grounds and off road track. The closed roads are great too - never felt too crowded.
Fantastic stuff. My first BG half, but not my last! Date of review: November 3, 2008
