Well organised straight forward low key event. Needed a few more portaloos and parking was tricky due to the park run before the event.

Good early season event. Nice course, picturesq and still fairly challenging considering it's a flat course!

Fab race. Well marshalled - some, who were at the start of the Matford loop were absolutely superb cheerleaders and really added to the race! Thank you!

A well organised local event, held over two days for different ability groups. A mainly flat course thats great for PB attempts, laid out on paths and pavements around the River Exe.Well marshalled with a really friendly atmosphere, Exeter Half Marathon gets a thumbs up from me.

The event is very well organised without any problems I could see. It went very well. The course is pretty flat. Great if your looking for a PB or you want to run rour first half marathon without overdoing it. The course is not the best if your looking for an experience with crowds and cheering you in. Its all off road and your unlikely to see crowds until the end. So it more of a runners half marathon and not for people challenging themselves and looking for an atmosphere.

It would have been good to know the route sooner. Also it was great to have somewhere warm and dry to shelter from the rain before the start.
