    Well produced race through the city of Manchester. Not too many hills, wonderful support and plentiful aid stations. Swag was wonderful…a hooded pullover and a sweet medal (You get additional bling if you run the shuffle the next day)!

    Pretty unique course, really focused on Elm Street, the main street in Manchester, which is really good for your spectators. They can literally see you 5 or 6 times without having to move more than one or 2 blocks away.

    The finisher’s medal is very nice (Shamrock shape as you’d probably guess) although it seems it was originally meant to be on a plaque as the pins are still in the back of it. Millenium Running puts on great races, you’ll always get free beer afterwards. Age group awards are never anything special but you’ll walk away with a beer glass if you place, which is something.

    Entry fee is a bit higher than I’d like to see in a half marathon but not totally unreasonable.

    The course itself has long uphills and long downhills but it’d be hard to design any course at any distance in Manchester that wasn’t. That’s not to say it’s not a fair course..it’s very runnable and the volunteers do a great job at the aid station and you could run a very good time here which I was able to do (missed my PR by 4 seconds and that was with pretty severe shin splints)
