Bez, I've ran the full marathon twice now, my first marathon in 2010 and again last year, and it's fair to say I won't be rushing back again.

There's plenty of support and people to run with in the first half, due to the HM that starts at the same time, but the second half is much more deserted (both in terms of support and other runners). It's also relatively undulating in the 1st half, if you're looking for a good time.

That said, most of the other commenters on this thread ( http://www.fetcheveryone.com/forum__58961__12__robin_hood_halffull_marathon_2016_Nottingham ) seem to be generally positive.
