The first ones always hard..
A great rewarding and well organised event!
A reasonably-organised event, nice flat course
It was a nice flat course and quite pretty. A little repetitive with doing so many laps of the same course but that didn't really bother me.
The only major criticisms were:
- the general public was allowed to wander onto the course seemingly at will. This did not impress me at all. I don't expect them to get out of my way on my training runs in normal life. But this was supposed to be a paid-for, organised event. If they didn't get permission from the park admin authorities, why even run it?
-Much smaller gripe, but combining the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon courses made it hard to tell when I should go one way and when the other if offered a left/right choice of course. Mostly the stewards were helpful but occasionally they weren't on it.
A minor criticism is that some of the stewards who were presumably supposed to cheer people on looked miserable and didn't really do much.
I guess i can't blame them on one hand, since it was cold and it must have been cold and boring to stand there, but a shame since their colleagues did a good job.
The smiling musician with the steel drums did a very nice job of creating a good vibe in his corner of the race.
Overall, a good experience but I may try other places and see whether these were just standard issues with all smaller-scale half marathons or whether it could be done better.
On a positive note, minor gripes aside, overall, I was glad to have another opportunity to do a timed race with the feeling of an event and I'm glad I took part!
Great day - great event
2. Awful transport connections (hard to escape afterwards, too much traffic)
3. Hard to tell how many laps you had done and when to finish without watch
A well organized event
Well organised, fun event
Very well organised, though I got a bit confused!
First ever Half Marathon
First ever 10k run
Well organised quick course.
Really fun event with great course.
