CD Very well organised race with a surprising variety of terrain due to part of the run being through Warwick University an a number of city parks. We effectively ran from Coventry University to Warwick University. Great set of cheerleaders at Warwick University who cheered us on our way. Great atmosphere and good support en route. Generous goody bag and good quality T shirt with an interesting design on it. Scunthorpe & District AC 1:50:41 2:04:10 2:08:56 50.53

DaveH Greatly enjoyed this race apart from the masive stitch in the Memorial Park - I blame the slightly contrived route through it. Unaffiliated 1:21:12 1:24:32 1:25:00 1:24:32 69.07

JAH First half marathon!!
Felt comfortable for most of first 8 miles - at just under 8:30 min/m pace.  Slowed a bit in last 5 miles, but stil managed an average of just over 8:30 pace.  Really pleased with my time - hadn't expected to get this much under 2 hours.
Didn't know Coventry had so many hills (although none were really hard)! Horrible hill just before 13 miles - why put one there!!!
Well marshalled, and planty of water stations - just wish they wouldn't put them at the bottom of hills - couldn't breath and drink! Unaffiliated 1:43:18 1:53:00 2:00:00 1:53:00 55.72
Johnny Blaze A PB for me, and really hard as well. Some quite hard slopes but really pleased with my time even though I did end up walking once or twice. Unaffiliated 1:51:02 1:57:32 2:00:00 1:58:32 53.57

Nightjar An excellent race with good atmosphere and support. Interesting route took in lots of green spaces so was fairly scenic. I took this race fairly easily due to some injuries so I was pleased with the time. Bedford Harriers AC, LDWA 1:37:01 1:42:51 1:50:00 1:53:54 53.92
paul the builder First time over 13.1, and going back to my home town to do it. 2 x 10 mile races point to around 1:48....
UPDATE - crikey, what a good prediction. And I'm really pleased to have my first HM under my belt, run pretty much as I expected. I ran first 5 miles with a mate who was always going to be slower (and came in about 2:05) nice and comfortable in around 42:30, then steady-ish 8:00-8:10 miles from there to home. The memorial park brought so many bad memories of school cross-country flooding back, and they made it tough by putting an unexpectedly snakey path through it - psychologically horrible if you know where the exit is, and then you have to run away from it...
Others have said, and I fully agree - this is a really well planned and executed event, and I hope it becomes bigger and bigger (from the c. 1800 HM field this year). Larne AC 1:21:53 1:47:44 1:48:00 1:47:44 54.46

Ricardo Very enjoyable, with a few steep hills especially the one right near the end, that was a bit of a surprise! Support was good especially from the University cheer leaders, they should be mandatory for every race!! Best goodie bag so far and a t-shirt to boot.

Seagrave Had serious energy issues on mile 9. Had to work very hard in last 4.5 miles, a bit of a disappointing time! Birmingham Running, Athletics, & Triathlon Club (BRAT) 1:28:36 1:43:09 1:45:00 1:47:25 54.35

taulpaul Was quite surprised by the amount of hills on this course and how mean putting one in there after 12 miles.  Great goody bag, medal and t-shirt.  Very well organised and would definitely recommend this one...
Happy with my time as haven't trained that much so was never gonna be that good Birmingham Swifts 1:33:28 1:33:28 1:40:23 58.63
