One of the best organised half-marathons out there. Big enough to be an event, but small enough to be accessible and not to be over crowded. Having it based at a Sports Centre is superb as you can change afterwards with excellent facilities. There's plenty of parking available nearby, and the course is stunning with a brutal, challenging and long hill at the half-way mark. Have done the last two and see no reason not to get a hat-trick next year. Crowds are fairly sparse, but will hopefully be back in force in 2023. Thanks TW Harriers, keep up the excellent work.

This is a well organised and fun race with a friendly atmosphere. The course is known to be challenging but other than ‘the hill’ it’s actually not too difficult. I’d definitely recommend this race to others.

The total elevation in my Garmin watch was 800 ft. A tough steep first 8 miles. Defenitely not for beginners.

As always, this event was brilliantly organised and wherever I was on the course, I was conscious that I wasn't far from help. More importantly, great encouragement at almost every step from stewards, volunteers and particularly the Rotary Club. The event was welcoming and friendly to everyone. Thank you to all those people who made it such an enjoyable experience.

This is a really well organised event, having a hall for bag drop, toilets and changing in the warm really make all the difference, we were lucky with the weather as there was a storm the day before and in the afternoon! The marshals were all great, cheering and clapping you as you past, as well as managing the traffic. With semi closed road and a killer of a hill I will definitely be back next year! Next year I may take my swimming kit to make use of the leisure centres steam and sauna for a post race recovery
