Did the Half Marathon - Day 1 in 2018
I thought the information provided was helpful. I wore trail shoes and am pleased I did - the rain and mud made parts of it a bit slippery and uneven. Check the weather before you run!

Did the Half Marathon - Day 1 in 2018
I think everyone clocked it longer than 13.1 so don't worry too much about that PB. Although it is flat so if conditions are favourable

Did the Half Marathon - Day 1 in 2018
Lovely, flat route, brilliant unique medal! Really friendly race that wasn't too competitive, everyone who took part was really supportive.

Did the Half Marathon - Day 1 in 2018
The only thing I would say is that it measured at 13.9 miles! So be prepared for the extra mileage.

Did the Half Marathon - Day 1 in 2018
I didn't like the route, it was really hard going back and forth especially the last bit, having to run past the finish line to carry on another 3.3 miles. I believe the route was changed due to a problem on the canal at the last minute so it probably won't be like that next time. It was muddy in places but mainly ok.
