Best Half Marathon

A fantastically well organised event - clear starters orders from the beautiful courtyard of Hampton Court Palace, plenty of marshals and water stations en route, a choir (!) and bands playing to lift your spirits too! Running into the grounds of Hampton Court Palace was a fantastic feeling at the end, and the event village and after-race experience was second to none. Bravo!
