A very warm day. Have only done 1 half marathon previously and this one looked like quite a challenge with the varying hilly terrain.
Stunning views took your mind off the heat and hills . Bit of a disaster at 10k when I turned my ankle. Pain!! Decided to carry on and the scenery once again came to my aid. Uphill was ok , downhill and flat painful but was determined to finish. Managed to finish under my estimated time despite the injury and claim my well earned medal. Happy to find physio and massage on offer at the finish. Really helped and gave me an ice pack too all for a nominal donation.
Great run and would sign up again. Surely one of the most scenic runs anywhere in the UK.
Dear festival organiser's
Both myself and my partner had a great weekend competing in the 10k and half marathon, I thought it was well organised and good value for money . The only improvement,s i could think of would be some mile markers and mabey some running gear trade stands .
Also a big thank you to organisers and marshalls
On a separate issue i would have liked to have competed in the the solent swim on the 4th of August , but find the cost including sponsorship to expensive.
A fantastic run, a little hot with a few challenges on the way around, a fantastic medal on the finishing line.
