I can't praise the organisation of this event highly enough - every detail seems to be taken care of from the moment you enter until after you cross the finish line. The warm-up was brilliant and the support from well-wishers around the course was tremendous. I intend to be back next year.

Great scenery

Any other notes?

I really enjoyed the course despite the up hill sections! They were tough, but it was very satisfying to reach the top of the Trundle and experience the amazing views, particularly as the weather was perfect.
My only slight criticism would be that only water was available, no snacks or energy drinks, unlike some other events I have done.
I would definitely recommend it to others and may do it again depending on my own personal goals for next year!

Whilst the course is difficult for beginners, the size of the field, the organisation and ambience will bowl over any newcomer.

A fantastic and challenging half marathon! The scenery was stunning and i will never forget the run up to the Trundle!

Any other notes?

A banana would have been welcome after the finish line - but that is only a small thing. Also, what about pace setters?

Any other notes?

You could really do with a controlled crossing point to the car park for pedestrians closer to the finish - currently people cross haphazardly nearer the road, blocking runners and dicing with single track traffic coming in and out!

Good race, marshalling was a bit poor!

Any other notes?

Lovely route!
I was running the 10 miler, we got sent the wrong way. The marshals at the roud field loop down centurions way sent the 10 mile runners around the loop even though that wasn't included in the 10 miles race.
Also there were no marshals for the 10 mile race from the top of chalk pit until you got down onto centurions way. This was okay for me as I knew the route, however for new runner this could have been very confusing.
10 mile race ended up being 17.1km!
Goody bags were amazing!
Organisation at the college with the bag drop was really good.
Thank you!

The only thing I would suggest to change is the use of plastic cups, paper cups can be used as a great alternative and much more environmentally friendly especially if cups are missed during the clean up.
