  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Everything was very well explained beforehand. My suggestion would be for the start. Slow runners just stay in the front of the runners, ignoring what that are told to do, that is to stay behind. Personally I lost alot of seconds by hanging around slow runners. Timings are known to the orgniasers ..... they should call out the fastest, not by name but by time to stay ahead, then runners who have a timing of 10 minutes more on the top runners ... and so forth.

    The course was interesting, yet not so fast.Start was too early and the buses arrived too early, we had to wait for almost 2 hours for the start.In general it was very good organized, great atmosphere, I would like to do it again. One remark - no food on the refreshment points. For the slower runners it is necessary to have at least 4 points with food, coke, etc, during the course.

    Well organised, read your race pack,

    know where to collect the bag after the race.. the route could do much nicer even if i know it is due to avoid blocking the whole islandnow you added the pacer which were too quick but it has been in all the races i did to be honest cant complain. next step would be to group people per time at the start

    I would like to have a runners bag with more devices (discount, protein samples ecc).
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    It very nice!Even during thr run I was quite comfortable with the cars going around, because thr race was well organized, even with the route chosen.However, when I went to get my race number I hoped to find some gadgets to remember that race but at least to find some articles about running.Thanks for the experience
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    I have ran this half marathon for the past 8 years, so this is nothing new to me. If there were better alternatives, I probably wouldn't take part in this race as value for money it is not worth it and in the past 8 years there have been no major improvements especially when it comes to quality of the races, experience, atmosphere etc. I find it ridiculous that they start the walkathon and half marathon at the same time, the goodie bag is just an empty bag with a t shirt and race number and it seems the organizers are in it for the money.
  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    The 2 loops at the beginning were mentally challenging as they weren't the most stimulating and I felt like I wasn't getting anywhere as I kept seeing the same landmarks all the time. The straight road back to Slima was fine except for a brief cut into an industrial estate. However it should be a fast course as it is pretty flat and if I had not been injured and trained sufficiently I'm confident I would have got a good time. Good support once you got back onto the waterfront but that is the last 3 miles - the rest did not have support other than the marshalls (although they were great). It was a hot day and I wish I had carried my waterpack as there was not a lot of shade.
  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    Before the race, I checked the route map and other details on the website and I saw that it was quite demanding. That's absolutely true. However, it was very interesting on this course, because there was really many musician bands who give you an incentive and an adrenaline. There were a lot of water and spontage stations, but I missed a few more stations with fruit, chocolate and other similar things. Nevertheless, this marathon was a pleasant experience.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Nice interesting and varied point to point course.Would have preferred the winners awards to be done soon after the race at the finish area with more prizes for the half marathon category as there were a lot of runners
