Review of Leighton Buzzard Dirt Half 15th Nov 2019 by Nicola Draycott

This was my first off road half marathon and I loved it! It is local to me and I was happy to find some new routes for future running. Well organised and despite only signing up two weeks before I was very happy with all communication and it was hassle free collecting my race number on the day. Great facilities at the start and well marshalled with support throughout. Nice bit of bling at the end but no T-shirt or goody bag. A great event which I will make a point of doing every year now and looking forward to my next dirt running event the Twin Lakes 20 in March. Thoroughly recommend this, especially as a gentle introduction to anyone wanting to try an off road half.

Rock N Roll Liverpool Half Marathon

Can’t rate this enough as a race! 100% epic!

Live music every mile, plenty of water stations, jells and lucozade. Loads of support, locals come out of their houses and cheer.

Always found it friendly, I’m a party at the back kinda girl. They have running angels for the last 2/3 miles to help anyone struggling or just to tell you your doing great!

Best bit is… You get a free pint at the end!!!

There is also a festive and live stage after party that had Toploader headlining this year.

All round a fucking epic weekend. Loads of bling too if you do the Saturday 5k and the Sunday 1/2 or marathon!

I nearly forgot about the goodie bags! You get loads of snacks, haribo, drinks, crisps!

I’ve entered for 2020 (3rd yr running) it’s my fav race of the year without a doubt!!
