Having run hundreds of races over the years the worst i have run is last year's Run To The Beat, everything about it was shite a complete rip off with the main objective to make as much money as possible, i would'nt enter this race again even if it was free.Second worst is The Welsh Half Marathon, no actual start line you just join the runners running the full marathon as they passed by, mile markers all over the place, according to their markers i ran the first mile in under 4mins & the last over 12 mins, a absolute joke of a road race.
At fifty quid there is no excuse for it to go so badly wrong, everything about this race stinks about profits first.When i entered this race i honestly thought it would be something different with bands playing throughout the course but what you get is nothing of the sort, no live music just some awful crap from a CD. They're making huge profits under false pretences.
A Skoda race at a Rolls Royce price. Probably the worst race in Britain with the main aim is to make as much money as possible, dreadful music on a awful overcrowded course.The only answer for this shambles is for people to boycott it but as long as 19,000 mugs continue to part with 50 quid for this shambles nothing will change, i have run over 100 half marathons but this is the worst by a mile.
