      The race started in front of Paignton Pier in front of quite a large crowd and then the route went to Torguay. The course is a 2 lap course which i never like but the event was well marshalled and supported. There was adequate water stations especially on a warm day with bottles of water given and energy gels later on. The course is a little bit hilly in places but enjoyable since you are never far from the Devon coastline. In conclusion a very enjoyable event and i will probabley do next year.

      This was my very first Torbay Half. I had heard good things from friends who had run it in the past. And as they were running it again this year I decided to join them.Registering for the race online was easy. If you register with plenty of time the race pack is sent out to you.The event itself is well organised, the route is clearly marked and on closed roadsThe race starts in Paignton and you run once around the sea front before heading out towards Torquay. The course is quite undulated but the hills are not too steep so they are pretty manageable.I quite liked the approach into Torquay. Lots of support from the crowd and it was nice to see the big wheel in the background. Once around the big wheel you head back into Paignton. First lap done, ready to start the second lap. If you are not a fan of 2-lap races maybe this race isn’t for you. I know some of my running friends don’t take part simply because of this reason.The crowd in Paignton is out en-masse and they are really good at cheering you on especially when approaching the finish line.The finish line is by the sea. Not many races can say that. It’s great to take your shoes off and jump into the sea to cool off, especially on a hot day like it was this year. Having said that, my friends who have been doing this race for the last 3 years have said that it’s always been sunny and hot on race day.Nice medal, a good finisher t-shirt and a generous goody bag. All in all I think it is a great race and very good value for money – just over £20 if you are a UKA affiliated runner.

      On Arrival at Paignton station the start line is half a mile from the station next to the peir. Race village and bag drop right on the sea front. When race day come around you all called with plenty of time the start. On the off you have to run once around the sea front before heading out to of town towards Torquay.  There some nice hills to start but not to bad .You get a fast run in to Torquay, once around big wheel you head back to Paignton.  First lap done you repeat the lap. Its great running to the finish line you have so many  people cheering to the end. You get a great medal and finisher shirt and goody bag.  After race some great entertainment in the village and bars. Had great time jumping in to the sea to cool off. Paignton has lots of places to stay and lots of restaurants .Not a bad half  to do.

    About the event

    Exeter's Great West Run takes an exciting 13.1 miles route through the heart of Exeter. This half marathon has it all; a journey through the city centre, followed by pretty country lanes and stunning views across Exeter and a fantastic stadium finish.

      This is my local race and I've run it for the past 15 years although the route has changed over time (and up until the past couple of years it used to be a May event). The course is essentially one loop with a 6k section of out and back. It's all on road/pavement. There are several hills (nothing too severe) so unlikely to be a PB course for most people. It starts just outside Exeter Arena on the Eastern side of Exeter and finishes in the Arena. Most years there's a lot of support through about half the course: the section from near Exeter St Davids railway station and the out and back through Stoke Woods has few spectators. Good number of aid stations that are well staffed (and a couple have drum bands, etc), on-course toilets and an efficient bag drop. The Arena finish is special; lots of support and great to finish the race on a fast and soft track. Good quality T-shirt and medal for all finishers. The only thing I'd improve would be having more active social media for the event; very little comms until the race packs hit the mats. I'll definitely be on the start line for 2019.

    We would like to promote well being and happiness to all so we have started what may well be several more long distance races in the beautiful landscapes of the Westcountry. We are not a hardcore off-road assault course company although we greatly admire those that enter such races. We hope to offer Marathon and Half Marathon races that are sociable and enjoyable whist maintaining the respect and integrity of the event and the distance. Whilst we welcome Marathon Runners of various abilities, we recommend that you seek professional advice before embarking upon completing a distance of 13.1 or 26.2 miles.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Starting and finishing in the Devon village of Tipton St John, the route takes in the breathtaking scenery of the Otter and Sid Valleys and a section of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in East Devon. The event welcomes participants of all abilities and has a long cut-off time. Our 2017 finishing times were a broad spread from winner Elizabeth Dyson's stunning 3:20:28 through to the brave 261 Fearless girls who kept strong, kept smiling and kept going for over nine hours.

      I did this as part of a 2 person relay so we each did a half. The course is tough but well worth it for the scenery and fabulous support from marshals, organisers, and locals along the way.If it's on again next year, I'll be there and doing the marathon. Full review here: http://runningonfullblog.com/women-can-marathon-relay/
