Em Not trained enough for this having found it difficult to get into running after being ill.

Had a mega strictch at 2 1/2 miles found most of the run up hill and when we had a down hill bit I was doubled over with bad stictch again, never had one like it before.  Personal worst but at least I got round.

Wore my fetch top and met 2 girls from Chepstow (I think) other than that fetch support was low!! Unaffiliated 1:55:05 2:22:00 2:25:00 2:22:00 47.15

KevR Excellent well organised race, really enjoyed the course although pretty tough (got to be worth 2-3 mins ?), uphill 1st half, downhill 2nd half, hill just after 11 miles is brutal, killed me and killed any attempt to get really close to PB.  Good support and will definately run again.  All in all really happy to get within 40 seconds or so of PB. Oxford Tri 1:24:35 1:26:27 1:28:30 1:27:13 67.90

Rach E Ran this untapered and knew the course was a toughie before setting out. A few evil climbs and I was very happy to come in first lady by over two minutes in 1:22:28. No stomach issues (isotonic gels are the way forward). Uphill first half (including climb up to the Ridgeway!) and downhill second half (except for 11.5-12.5 which killed me!!). Other people run +2-3 mins off their best here so sub-1:20 is still go :-) Probably one of the nicest races I've ever done. It's never going to be a quick course BUT fantastic organisation and great support. Thank you again Zoom for the most fantastic Welsh cakes this side of the Severn Bridge...

Zoom Just used as a training run before Snowdonia Marathon in 2 weeks time, and number 26 of my 40 half marathons before I'm 40. Aim was mp of 9.45mm, with the heat and hills pleased I did about that time. 
Great race, very well organised, great support from marshalls and crowds, will be back! Chepstow Harriers 1:55:49 1:55:49 2:09:59 52.43
