Second time running my home town half marathon, first time was awful, this time round was a completely different story, superb run, great support, lovely weather and gold medal, my only complaint is why it took us close to an hour to get out of the carpark, it was an utter joke, no marshal supervision at all, it was a free for all. I know this happens but actually, it doesn’t really need to happen, why they didn’t just marshal the cars out one at a time from the 5 or 6 lines of cars al trying to get out at the same time is beyond me, anyway, that said, we got out eventually but it’s not really the ideal ending to an otherwise great day. 

Would I recommend this race? I guess I should say yes as it’s my home town half, if you like to run flat up and down a seafront 4 times then go for it, value for money and you do get what you pay for, it’s  got good PB potential with plenty of crowd support the water stations are well stocked and also they give you wet sponges which is great especially as it was really warm yesterday.
