Did the Half Marathon in 2021
Very well organised and marshalled run. Good course - all the way to Watermead Park and back. Didn't like the last mile going up New Walk though, that was just mean!! Great event overall (in spite of the torrential rain!!!)
Did the Half Marathon in 2018
Love this event as our big city half in Leicester. It's come a long way over the years and definitely one worth doing!
Did the Half Marathon in 2018
Bag drop a bit hit and miss- but well organised.
