Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed yesterday's race. It's a tough one but the
atmosphere and particularly the support from the marshalls was amazing. Will look
forward to next year!
.......awesome race and look forward to competing again next year.
....... I had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the experience. The good weather
certainly didn’t hurt (how nice was that?!?), but the course was lovely and the organisation
was really fantastic. Thanks again for such an amazing race!
..... :-D The organisation and marshalls were great, hopefully I can bring more
from our club next year to enjoy the event again.
..... thanks to all the team and volunteers who made my first half marathon a truly
great and enjoyable experience. The experience has inspired me to continue to run
and train for a possible full marathon later in the year.
