It was an early start for the Nottingham half marathon – with 13,000 runners due and a 9.30 start there was no time to be wasted building up pre race nerves. At £30 entry fee it wasn’t the cheapest event going but I think it was well worth the money…….it was well marshalled, plenty of water stations, loads of support throughout (thank you to all the people I heard supporting The Striders – you certainly gave me a boost), as well as a decent goodie bag at the end (including as many bottles of lucozade sport as you could manage to pick up)!
I did this same race last year and was warned with the change of route it was much hillier this time round – I needn’t of worried though – the main hill of the event was out the way by mile 2 and running through Wollaton park and part of the university campus made it a really enjoyable run. [Sarah]
