The course was great and the event fun and well organised. For improvement, I noticed that there wasn’t a drinks station at the 9/10 mile mark as advertised (and if there was it certainly wasn’t easy to spot!). Overall good event and will do again in the future.Ben

First half marathon. I found the terrain difficult. But it was still as enjoyable as it could have been. I would recommend as it was a challenge for me.

There were not enough markers. I took a wrong turn at mile 12. A runner also followed me. Then other runners called us back. I ran about 3/10 of a mile extra. There also should have been more markers between mile 7 & 8. and there were not mileage signs.
