Excellent event, just wee before you get there.. Really well laid out route, nice Hill in the middle to mix things up. Event village was well stocked with a variety of stalls. Good to have celebs at the start. Warm up routine could have been better but who really does these. The start was a little confusing and a lot if people started their watches too soon. But not a biggie. My only gripe was the lack of toilets. There were many but just not enough for 5000 people, most of which need a wee before they run. Thank god for bushes if you a bloke. Really recommend this half marathon. Better than Brighton by a long way.
