WHAT PEOPLE SAY:


“Wow, what an event; from online video promotion, well organised registration, the amount of marshals on the course and the course itself - simply amazing!  I’ve raced all over the world, and it is fantastic that my local Marlow Half Marathon has to be up there as a personal favourite..”


“I have done quite a few marathons and half’s around the world and I thought Marlow was one of the nicest and best run - great day.”


“Thank you for a truly well organised event. From start to finish, absolutely great. The marshals were so encouraging and the results were out immediately, both in text form and online. Well done”!


“Thanks for putting on such a great race. Really  well organized and the marshals were brilliant! Thoroughly enjoyed it (even with the hills), and will definitely be signing up for next year!!”


“Thank you for organising a great event.  Everyone I met and spoke with were incredibly helpful and friendly.The support and cheers of encouragement from the marshals and watering teams was exceptional

too.   I had a great time and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a really please race to run at. Lovely route through the countryside on very quiet roads.”


“May I take this opportunity to thank Marlow Striders for a great race, your marshals are great and the various signs along the route always make you smile. I have done the half a few times previously but have to say I think the 7 is great.”


“Thanks for a fantastic run yesterday, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The course was great and the foothills of the Chilterns were glorious. We were really impressed by the friendly atmosphere, with lots of support and marshalling.”













RACE REPORT BY DAVE PHILLIPS


All I can say (as I do every year) that this is probably the best organised half in the UK BUT it is BRUTAL. The Chiltern Hills may not seem to severe as you drive down the M40 with the Red Kites soaring above but try running up and down them.


The start is in the town but very soon climb one starts and this goes on for 2 miles. Then a lot of ups and downs ‘till 5 when we are on top of the Chilterns but what a killer of a start. At around 3+ the split came and loads of the runners turned left for the 7 miler so that left me on my own-well almost. Then more hills up and down to 6 and then a real crippler for ever upwards to almost 8.


Lovely signs on the road en route with these 3 that I remembered


It’s only a hill-you’ll soon get over it.


Smile - you did pay for this event.


Use your imagination and think it’s flat.


The marshals were superb, friendly and encouraged us all the time so well done Marlow Striders. Plus most of the roads and lanes were traffic free-probably because the cars couldn’t get up those hills!


8 to 10 was flattish and again in stunning countryside with huge views, hills and valleys galore and beautiful wooded lanes to jog along. Then at 10 the last uphill struggle came along until 11 when we were again on the top but it was downhill (well sort of) to the finish at the Marlow sports ground.


Was I glad to finish! A real crippler so I guess I’ll be back for the umpteenth time next year.


Super T shirt (long sleeved as always) medal and goodie bag made it all worth-while I guess.
