Did the race in 2020
I ran 12 half marathons the year I did this one and it was by far the worst. The medal was pathetic, there was a extortionate parking charge for spectators and no t-shirt or goody bag.

Did the race in 2019
I never heard so much bad language and aggressive abuse. If I had a penny for every F and C word coming from cyclists to pedestrians and drivers passing my home on Sunday whilst they were competing in the triathlon then I would have earned a fortune. Absolutely disgusting behaviour and an insult to the sport and the charity they are trying to support.
