Wolverhampton Half Marathon (07 Sep 2008)

'A full, half and relay marathon all in one race. Reasonably well organised, but could do with improvements at the start, where it took me more than a minute to get across the starting line (which all added to the official finishing time as there was no chip), and on a short part of the route which had not been shut off to traffic. The route included a couple of steep-ish hills, which would limit any chances of obtaining a PB. Organisers and local people were very friendly and helpful, which tipped the balance in favour of me deciding to come back next year (but making sure I'm closer to the starting line when the gun goes off).
