Alex B Last ran this in 2000 as my 4th ever half Marathon.  I remember it being hot and hillier than i expected and feeling exhausted afterwards. Looking forward to revisiting it.
*update* Beautiful day. A little on the warm side. Started at about 9mm pace, but gradually speeded up and finished strongly. Felt pretty good for all but a couple of miles, and pleased with time. Nice to bump into SiamesePete and Tabasco. Fareham Crusaders 1:38:26 1:41:51 1:50:00 1:50:30 53.47

dibbo New Route.  Had trapped nerve in left foot caused me to stop and take treatment at 11 miles adding 2-3 minutes onto time.  Insufficient training.  Passed 10 miles at 1.19.00 Unaffiliated 1:28:36 1:47:35 1:50:00 53.96

eMpTy Due to recent breathing problems decided to run within myself and try and keep the effort constant, despite the many lumps I think I managed it. A course PB, so can't be too disappointed. Denmead Striders 1:31:57 1:31:57 1:32:00 1:38:33 66.68
firekat First ever half.  Feeling slow however 4 hours is optimistic...
nice route and views (couple of hills nothing major).  lots of water and sponges.  not fast enough for the sweeper bus but allowed to carry on running as route was open until 3.30pm. Unaffiliated 3:18:31 3:18:31 4:00:00 3:18:31 32.84

MacDaz Not as bad as it could have been, not as good as I hoped. Managed PB pace on the flat bits but...those hills! Still lovely day and a nice run. Have to say that the organisers let themselves down from their usual high standards. Unaffiliated 1:35:34 1:39:43 1:45:00 1:40:49 58.87
mothrunner This will be my first half marathon. Hoping to do it in under 2 hours 15, but slightly scared by all the talk of hills!

Turned out to be a wonderful day, really enjoyed the race, the scenery was lovely, weather perfect, hills nowhere near as bad as I'd feared.  And the time was much faster than I had expected!!  Couldn't be more pleased. Headington RoadRunners 1:52:55 2:06:24 2:15:00 2:06:24 51.54

Twirlip of the Mists Ran with Katie to pace her. No idea what I would have done by myself. Very pleased that she is pleased with her result. 
Some beautiful scenery and a gorgeous day. 
Ached quite a bit afterwards. 
When you aren't pushing youself it's not that long a distance. Not that it's short; it's just not as epic as I'd imagined. Unaffiliated 3:18:32 3:18:32 3:18:32 29.41
