I was excited about this race but I was quite disappointed. I actually thought the Blackpool half last year was better than this one. It was soulless, there was very little support around the track only when you past the 3 mile, 6 (ish I think) and 10 miles was there any support. I don't know what I expected but because its the half marathon most London marathon runners do I thought it might have a bit more atmosphere but it didn't. The tinny tannoys blurting out music we're awful, thank goodness I had my iPod which I don't usually like to use during these big races because I like to hear the support. It is a flat race, but again this added to the boredom. I think unless you're a proper serious runner after a pb, maybe choose a more interesting half to do with a bit of a view. On the positive side, it was very well organised, the traffic wasn't as bad as expected and I got a pb 5k and 10k time. I'm glad I've done it because now I know this sort of track race isn't for me, I like to see things other than concrete, but it's not a race ill be rushing back to do.
