I've had a fit of madness and entered this race as my first half marathon, and I've got four months to get from near 19 stone couch potato to half marathon finisher. Has anyone done this race? Is it a good starter half. I thought it was when I saw the wine and fancy dress bits, then I saw the word hill several times. I'm still looking forward to it immensely for some reason. Latest update. I've also entered the Silverstone half on March 3rd 2013. I'm going to do the Bacchus as a tester, not bothered if I walk some, but I want to run Silverstone. The whole distance. Hopefully I won't need to kill myself to do it!!
