Easy to find the event., easy to park, walk to event HQ quite a distance but fine.Start hassle free, Scenic course, great marshal's with plenty of encouragement out on course, lots of water available. A few short uphill sections but largely flat.Enjoyed the finishing straight as it is straight.. Happy friendly greeting after crossing the line when handed medal and treats..

Having completed a number of half marathons the Great Bentley Half was without doubt the best organised I've attended. Everything was straight forward, volunteers were excellent especially around the baggage storage area. Throughout the course the Marshalls were brilliant. Given it was a tad chilly these guys and girls were happy, smiling, cheering and really made for the occasion. The only minor thing I would suggest would be a few more toilets at the village hall. Other than that there is nothing to complain about I can only praise the organisers and volunteers for putting on a well organised event and I will certainly be registering for next year. Thank you to all those involved.

Great Bentley Running Club organised a fab event. Flat course, well marshaled, plenty of water stations along the route. Almost forgot to collect my medal, mars bar and banana in the excitement of having PB'd! The bacon rolls, vast array of home baked cakes and hot tea were the perfect conclusion to a very friendly race.

Great race - marshalls did a brilliant job in the freezing cold - mars bar & banana at the finish line got my vote!
