Watford half marathon

PeggyG - It is quite normal for a GPS watch or app to not be 100% correct on the distance.  It is to do with the way they log your location (normally not continuous but every 5 seconds for example) and also the race line you take.  Normally people tend to run further than the actual distance as there are other runners in the way and they move around them etc.  I hope that helps.

MyFitnessArena - I've heard great things about Berkhamsted from a few people, I might add that to my to do list this year.

PeggyG - you are right, what comes up must come down and there certainly where some nice downhill parts as well.  I did track it with my TomTom and that came up with 13.4 miles.  Last year (the same route) my Timex came up with 13.2 miles if that helps as well

It is a great race, one of the only races I've done more than once and in fact the only race I've done 3 times!  It is very well organised, and such a challenging, but interesting course.  I'll happily do it a 4th time as well.

Very true Mark.  I had similar fears about it not have road closures when I 1st did it, I signed up pure as money was tight and I need to run a local half that weekend as part of my marathon training... & I love it, small, but vocal support, an interesting course with a bit of the 'ups & downs' and great value.  I'd happily recommend this race to anyone and will be signing up again myself this year.

I'm in!  I did it last year and in 2013 (I think).  Always well organised, interesting and a little bit up an down!  Really good fun and I'm looking forward to it - far too much considering I'm not really ready for it at all and it's pretty soon!

It is on pavements, and it certainly seemed to me to be enough space for the size of the field (It's quite a small field)

I've not signed up for this yet, but I will do after payday.  I did it a couple of years back and really enjoyed it, even though it was a cold day!

Hi Andy, nope must be another Matthew N -  I know nothing of Engineering!

It has the same price but the new dates on the packages page of the website, so I think it might be the same price.
