No issues. Well organised.
Loved it, I found the warming up particularly funny
Seemed to be short of marshals in a few sections.T-shirt sizing bad - I took an XL and it is smaller than L from other events, also very thin/cheap material compared to previous years.Would be better to offer a discount on entry for those that do not want a T-shirt, or make the T-shirt an optional purchase. Extra charity donation is not really an incentive. We do need to be mindful of the environmental impact of producing 1,000s of low quality T-shirts that a lot of people may not actually want or use.
It was a fun dayEnjoyed itMore motivation to exercise
Great course, ran Bristol Half for a number of years & always love it. Well organised race event. Will definitely return. T-shirts are little small tho, the only negative factor.
It was all excellent, bag drop with buses wa brilliant, but they ran out of medium shirts.
Really good in most aspects but v v disappointed that you are using plastic bottles for water. So I am not signing up for next year.
There were not enough water stations around the course. And it was not clear how to get water at the end of the race
I struggled to find a water point to fill my bottle at the start of the HM. I had to scrounge some from a stranger!! The water point on the course was too far away to wait for
I enjoyed it, great atmosphere , the 10k course has changed since I last ran it, I didn't like it.Also the results only tell you your position and time in the race, it does not state how many people ran in the race.Its a shame the 10k and half marathon are run on same day, I used to run 10k and half marathon when 10k was in May and half marathon was in September.
