Loved the course, nice and flat, great organisation. Atmosphere obviously depends on how many people are there. Maybe greater advertising that it is happening?

Lost track of the laps on the way around so missed the final turning on the half marathon, but apart from that, it was great!

Everything about the course is fine BUT the finishing straight is terrible - because it's not a straight!The last 200-300m or so involves doing a sharp right turn onto a very narrow path, then another sharp right onto wet grass, then another sharp right onto a paved path (with wet trainers that have lost their grip), and finally a sharp left, again onto wet grass. Runners wanting to finish fast with a sprint will not be happy.I felt as though I was taking part in a cross country race at the end but wearing the wrong running shoes. Luckily it wasn't raining. Although I will take part again, I won't enter the race until I am sure that it hasn't rained prior to the day or if the ground is likely to be wet.

I really enjoyed the run. The marshals were fantastic and there was a great atmosphere. I especially enjoyed the man playing the steel drums.
