A really challenging, hilly course but the views are worth it. Great marshals. Such a shame they didn't give you a medal after spending £32 to enter.

This was my first half so not much to compare with, but felt well organised, the course was really enjoyable and well marked, marshalls were great and the support from the locals was fab. Loved it!

Overall this was a great event. The course was in a lovely area and there was some great scenery along the way. It’s a challenging course with plenty of hills, but that just means lots of downhills too. My only criticism is that at the finish they ran out of both the finishers water bottles and long sleeve t-shirts (only S and XS available) which was disappointing
