The half marathon measured up short which is the ONE thing you need to get right if you are putting on races. There were no photos of the event and the water stations were inadequate given the 25 degree heat. A rip off a £25, but the route along the sea was nice, was well marshalled and the spectators were great.

Imagine viewer shows water at 5k but this was not the case. Water was at 2.5k and on returning 7.5k thé were no cups left. It was a hot day so probably more demand. Something to consider for next time.

Didn't measure half marathon distance. Was under. Not great when really the only real job is to make sure that the distance is correct.

The only small issue was that as one of the slowest runners, I got to the water station for the last time to find they had run out of cups. Not great when it was such a hot day but could easily be rectified in future races. Otherwise a fantastic experience, with a great atmosphere at the start/finish and out on the course everyone running back and forth made it feel great as I wasn't just on my own at the back!

No refreshments and nowhere in the shade for spectators. Think of facilities for runners supporters...they deserve some comfort while they wait for the runners to finish. Water station ran out of cups...poor planning.

This is the first fix events I have entered and I was honestly very disappointed with the organisation of the run. This is because it was 25degrees. The drink stations were cup, which isn’t great when you are running a bottle with a sports cap would of been more appropriate. When I got to the last station the cups had ran out and was told put your hand in the bucket to get any water. This is unacceptable when we are living in a world of covid. I have done many races and to get over the finish line to only be greeted with a medal and a cup of water Is a real disappointment especially after paying £25 to enter. Even previously I have paid £15 to run 5km races and have been greeted with unopened bottles of water, fruits and optional snacks.
