Really well organised. With all the challenges that Covid presented them, the organisers of this event did a first class job. The course was flat & fast on closed roads. There were lots of clearly visible marshals and plenty of water on offer. I loved the whole event.

Great Event. Having never run in an organised event before I found it was great. Every aspect really. Only bad thing really was the walk to and from the car park field which was so wet everyones trainers were soaked before you even started the race!

Countryside Delight. The course for the Cheshire half was stunning. Lots of beautiful houses and greenery edging windy country lanes. A few 'undulations' rather than hills and a relatively smooth running surface makes for a potential PB race time. It was my first half marathon and I will definitely be back next year to improve my time.
Congrats on your first half!

Beautiful surroundings. My first official half marathon. Was very impressed with the location and organisation. The Marshall were very encouraging and the medal/t-shirt was spot on. I will definitely be signing up again for next year
Good work on your first half!
