    As a slower runner I like to do the 10k race's that also run a half marathon, that way i'm not keeping the marshalls waiting for me to finish. this race is well organised and so friendly. I know if it is being organised by Nice Work I will be ok and run with a smile on my face
  • Did the Half Marathon – Sunday in 2019

    A lovely event that combines efficient organisation with a friendly, welcoming, low-key approach. The course is a bit undulating but very scenic. As someone who is nearer 60 than 50, I appreciated prizes in 5-year age groups rather than the usual 10 - although I still didn’t win one! Spotted a former world record holder cheering on the runners while his wife directed traffic - which speaks volumes for the spirit of the event.

    Lovely scenic route, not overcrowded. Might end up doing a longer distance due to route being open to public - playing dodge the dog walkers!

    I'm not the fastest of runners but I felt supported all the way round. It was great in areas where faster runners passed us. The scenery was astounding. Great medal.
