  • Did the Half Marathon in 2020

    If there`s something that you will remember for sure after this race is the "undulating" course, there is about 6 miles of climb and a total of 260M elevation. Over all was great but also expect some very good runners. with a time of 02:09 I came out 1016 out of 1300 (maybe is just my being slow but over 900 runners were under 2h)

    Brilliant but tough course. May not hit any PBs on it but it does go through some beautiful rolling hills. Wish medal was a bit more substantial. Would I do it again, probably, if I wanted to really challenge myself again.

    Surprisingly beautiful route and a good half to do in preparation for a spring marathons
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    I have run this race 4/5 times. Its normally pretty cold in early Feb, so tricky to get the gear just right unless youre a real pro and happy to run in a vest.The perfect first real race of the year to brush away those lingering new year cobwebs.There are some tough climbs in this run particularly between miles 7-8, so not ideal for a PB.Excellent marshalling and support along the route particularly in the residential roads.

    Make sure you have done your Hill training!!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Definitely prepare by running up hills!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    This was a good race that enabled me and my running buddy to get some miles in at just under race pace. Well organised with plenty of toilets, refreshments, and good baggage area. This is the second time I have run Watford, and I will run it again.

    Scenic route, a few hills made it interesting.Love the supporters along the way.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    The marquee at the beginning was too small/ crowded. Had to go from registration to info (for safety pins) to bag drop, would be ideal to have them in order rather than crossing over areas. Two start points were confusing for spectators if they didnt know which start to watch out for.
