This was my first ever 1/2 marathon, and I only started running March 2008 to keep fit.
I'm originally from the Black Country (bought up in Dudley) and absolutely loved the race from Wolvo to Brum.
I was a little disappointed in the tunnel not being lit as it posed tow problems for me,
1. Not knowing what the uneven surface on the ground was like
2. A passer by, cyclist was travelling in the opposite direction
I wonder if anybody else thought the same?
Notwithstanding what I have stated above, the experience of running from the Black Country into Birmingham, all along the canal path was truly awesome, and I can't wait for next year to beat my course time.
