Quibell Park Scunthorpe
Wow what a day! We will be back in 2018, bigger and better. Thanks for all of your support.
Love this feedback…..
Just thought I’d take a few minutes to provide some feedback for yesterdays North Lincs Half Marathon.
I started running last year, and this is my 4th Half Marathon, having also run the Manchester Marathon this year. I’ve also run a few 10ks of varying size.
This wasn’t a target race as such but due to other commitments was the only HM I could enter before the autumn. The race was actually recommended by a fellow runner who’s a member of a running club, but didn’t appear on the usual searches I did looking for a race, so maybe something to look at there?
Please pass on my thanks to the race marshals, medics and volunteers without which I know these events can’t happen.
The organisation was good on entering and you helped get my name changed on the results and it’s the details here which help on race day – race number mailed out, timing chip on race number etc.. which make the experience less stressful on the day. Maybe a tear off strip for baggage but it’s a minor point.
I parked at the college and this worked well, plenty of folks directing and not too far to walk.
Support around the course from race marshalls and the event crew on bikes was great! At one point it felt like i had my own coach motivating me. On a par with much bigger events. Didn’t have the need for the race angels, but what a brilliant idea.
Water stations were well staffed and stocked with bottles (my preference) so again ticked the box and they were every 3 miles so perfect gaps between.
The course itself was as advertised, flat and fast and yes i did PB, so very happy with that.
There was only one section where the course was narrow up to mile 10 marker i think, but having all of the road closed prevents bunching and having to step round other runners. The finish was also good, finishing on a track was a nice touch and we all had our moment of glory!!
Thanks again, overall a great job!
Will recommend to others.
