Leeds Half Marathon (15 May 2005)

Conditions were excellent - cool and slightly overcast but dry. The race was well organised (except for a fairly chaotic start line) and although many roads along the course remained open the marshalling was very good. The course is undulating with some fairly long inclines, but well marked (including mile markers) and although crowd support was generally sparse the 5,000 runners (including corporate relay teams) created a good atmosphere. Recommended if you're in the area.
