What do you look for in a race? If you want a fast time you can't get faster than Scunthorpe, though it's a fair distance from you.

Define "Best"! ;-)

For me, the Yorkshireman Off-road Ultra-Half Marathon is the best, because I've probably had my best runs there. And it's a fell(ish) race. :-)

I have run only Coventry out of those three so I can't really say. I've heard Liverpool is a good PB course.

hi becky, I would say Liverpool.

I did cardiff half a couple of weeks ago and that was great.

You got some really good race times there. Keep up the good work.

I have done Liverpool for the last 5 years and I love it - it's a good course, fairly fast unless the wind is against you in the last section. There is good support and the goodies are great.

I've only run Coventry of those. The nice thing about the course is it's slightly downhill back from the furthest point, so you get a bit of a boost as you're getting tired

Got something to say?
