The start / finish village is very well arranged and was so welcoming to what were a few nervous faces. The warm up prior to the big start was really fun and the Marshalls throughout were excellent. Runthrough are just excellent and I look forward to many more events in the future with them.

Absolutely brilliant organisation and amazing atmosphere, a bit of incline through the woods but would recommend anyone to do it.

I really enjoyed everything about my first half marathon but was saddened when I couldn’t find my finish line photo after looking multiple times online. I have also reached out to you twice only to be ignored. I know it’s only a photo but really wanted it as a keepsake. Amazing experience regardless.

I loved the run in the Roundhay park. It was organised well with bag drop, runner pack collection tents and water bottles along the run with some energy packs. I felt the atmosphere could have been a little more electric with some group activities before the start like the warm up we did like Mexican wave it shouting a slogan may be. But overall I loved the course and have booked the Chester run already with you guys. Thanks for inspiring me to run more. Miles to go before I sleep.

It would be good if it made it clearer what the elevation of the course was as I was expecting a flatter course. But loved the event and was a great training race for London marathon
