  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    I thought that for a lap race this was good. The staff were pleasant and friendly. I had questions before the race which were answered very promptly. Ive personally discovered that lap racing is not for me but it was nice to see people of different ages and levels all getting to run together. The atmosphere was friendly and non judgemental
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Really well organised, friendly staff, free parking for up to 4 hours, 1 mile lap course, thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Firstly I achieved several PBs running this course especially a half marathon PB. Everything was very well organised apart from a couple of things. Collecting belongings after the race took far too long, a single file line formed which moved far too slowly. More than one toilet near the start of the race would of been nice as well. The standout improvement needed though is the atmosphere! More music or people cheering dotted around the course would make for a richer experience. However, the positives outweigh the negatives. Well sign posted, easy to register, drop things off, good course, one water station, goodies afterwards, nice medal, excellent results breakdown online. I will be returning for at least another run and possibly a cycle as well. Matt Turner
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    I thoroughly enjoyed the race, a relaxed atmosphere and a good range of abilities. My only changes would be for the organisers to advise people who walk the race to move to the outside of the track, as there are a lot of corners so running along the insides of the curves saves a fair bit of distance overall, which becomes tricky with people walking 2-3 abreast along the apex of the bends. If you are running with a fitness tracker changes your units to miles to help track the laps better (its a mile per lap). The refreshments available afterwards were top notch.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Very well organised event. 1 mile course - I have done it a few times. Really good marathon/half marathon training course. Its hilly, windy and challenge you mentally. Even that it not a PB course, I have done a half marathon PB in 2018. Definite will recommend this race - for training but also for racing. I will be back in February.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Was good fun. Just a shame the chip system malfunctioned - apparently I ran the 7th mile in 38 seconds...
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Laps were a challenge for me and each mile was far from flat but plenty of communication from organizer and well set up for participants made for an overall good impression.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Superbly organised, the whole morning flew by without any visible hitch. Bag drop and registration seamless and the staggered starts had no visible impact on the course at any point. I must admit I was caught out by the continuous subtle elevation and 13 laps was a real mental challenge but all in all it was a great event
