Long time lurker, first time poster..

I came accross this event the other day and entered on a whim as part of my VLM training. Is it the first time the even has been run?

    I looked at this myself as I live locally, never heard of it before.  The route is more or less the same as the Kingston breakfast run/Kingston run challenge but in the opposite direction.  The first section will be nice, good views of HH and along the river into Kingston, after that it's a bit dull just alongside a fairly busy road (hence the early start). Nice and flat though.

  • I completed this run yesterday. There has been a lot of criticism of this race elsewhere in this forum. The busy road you mention along with narrow pavements presented a lot of problems. Too many runners in confined sections.Also race route was short by .4 of mile, so it was not a half marathon as advertised. The organisers admitted to the error. There were a lot of unhappy runners, disappointed that there times would not count as a half marathon time.
