Did the Half Marathon in 2019
The event was well organised with the exception of sending out the wrong start & arrival times via email, which were different from their website. Luckily we clarified with them beforehand as we would have missed the race start!It was a very fast paced course with a close time of 2hrs30mins, so my slower two run buddies raced their legs off to get around in time (there were many behind them) to collect their well deserved finishers medal. Some of the marshals were packing up 10minutes before the closing time, and we almost couldnt get a snack afterwards as the snack van was also attempting to close! It all felt very rushed at the end and geared towards serving the fastest finishers and club runners. I think if it were less rushed, giving even just an extra 15minutes for clear-up, the final runners would feel as important as the more speedy runners. I think this would also attract more participants. Overall, it was a good experience (as I really enjoyed the lapped course) and got a Pb of exactly 2hours! (5 minutes off my previous hm times.) Also, two of the course marshals were fantastic encouragers on the way around cheering on those who struggled!However, we wont be taking part in this one again due to the above.
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Marshalls were nice and helpful. Course was good for a first time but not wildly interesting. Id try it again to aim to improve my time.
