Very well organised

A great race, very well organised in a lovely setting. Challenging yet not impossible!
Loved the proper tracks & footpaths which gave sure footed conditions despite the torrential rain beforehand.
Motivational signs on the course, lots of spectator interaction & great professional photos.
Great medal & tasty snacks at the end too!

Well organised

I completed my first half marathon at Heaton Park and thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was well mapped out and all staff were helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.
