It was a great weather and that I was with my family makes me feel well. Track was good but less information about him makes some people didn't understand what the right route is. Organisation didn't care about that and accept the fact that you can cheat and come first. They truly believe in numbers from device and don't trust people's who noticed a violation of rules. For the future I don't recommend events by this organization only if you don't care about how to spend you're life time.

Not as much atmosphere as some bigger events but a challenge and a different feel having to run in between general public. Still a great experience and a challenging course.

Poorly organised by run nation. Start line was not set up for the half marathon resulting in starting the race later than start time. Marshall’s did not know how many laps you had to completed causing confusion throughout! Would not recommend using run nation!

Unclear start time, website said 930 an email said 945.Badly organised.No directions to the start of course.No warm up.Late starting. Freezing cold in shorts and vest. Laying down the starting panel after the race should have started with no urgency.Megaphone not working.Minimal stewards on route.Water given in cups - useless unless you stop.The finish was not clearly indicated so I ran past it and had to turn round.No one welcoming you in at the end.Worst of all, time machine had broken down on the finish line so I was unable to know my time.Amateurish event compared to previous half marathon held in august at the same venue.No photos

The face course was good. Given there were no official sponsors to the race they conducted it pretty well. They were running short of volunteers but still managed to do well at the the end. There was no warm up like the earlier races I participated and no energetic atmosphere too at the finish line. I wasn't disappointed with that. Overall a good silent pleasant outing.

Not sure how you could eliminate but I would love to see you get rid of single use plastic - so many plastic cups and bottles.
