More than 7 toilets needed. My other half #301 Julian Bedford has not had his HM time recorded. Staff were understandably cold and hiding inside hard to find. You had to find your own medal at the end, was not offered water at the finish. Marshalls on the course in the awful weather were FABULOUS!!! Cannot fault them!

Incredible. Will definitely be back. *not a complaint but was wondering if there are runs where there’s a 5k lap, could there be an option for a 15k as it’s a big jump from 10k to half marathon?

Hi My second time here and still as good as before the organisation was top notch with such a great atmosphere . The rain was non stop the whole race and still everyone made it a great event and the heavy rain did not get people down . Well done to all the poor volunteers out there in that awful weather , I really enjoyed the day

This was my second half marathon and despite the unfortunate weather conditions, this was such an amazing day! The organisation was excellent, the organisers mingled and spoke with the runners which was lovely to see, and the stewards maintained a positive and encouraging atmosphere despite being stood out in the wind and rain for hours. Thank you for an incredible day!

Very well organised. I prefer receiving race numbers in advance but it was quick and easy on arrival. Due to the wet weather it would have been good to have a changing area afterwards

Hi, Is there a Strava route for the marathon route, appreciate it is laps but trying to check elevation but can’t find anything. I ran silverstone last year thinking it would be flat but is was undulating for majority of the course. Thanks

Hello, according to my Garmin record, the total elevation was only 21m up for full marathon course. I has remembered due to nearly perfect flat course, it killed my same muscles and the latter half was a disaster to me.
Ben Coleman

Very similar to Silverstone. Looks flat but one pretty sharp hill in the back straight that’s hard work especially if the wind is against you.
