My slowest ever but so much fun. A super day out with great fellow runners and support. Thanks guys, I hope to be back again next year.

Sun, scenery & hills! What more could you want? Best Marshalls and aid stations I've had yet!

If haven't done this yet and you're thinking of doing it next year but are in two minds - Do it!! You won't be disappointed!

Thanks for a great race!
This was my 83rd half marathon and my third time around this beautiful course, and this was probably the hardest race I've ever done because of the searing heat... my energy just evaporated!
But before i could throw in the towel and collapse in a heap there appeared through the heat haze a table of water cups and wonderfully enthusiastic marshalls! Never before has a bucket of water and sponge been so greatly appreciated!! You guys rock!!
Gravity got me to the finish line,
And always lovely having the mayor and town cryer handing out medals and handshakes.
Thanks a million!

Slowest marathon ever and very pleased just to finish (of course now having to endure "so what was your time" enquiries from non-runners...). Great event as ever - see you again next year

Pete, Henfield Joggers , 09-May-2018

Fantastic atmosphere and a brilliant race, even if I thought I wasn't going to make it at various points!

Brilliant aid stations. Especially the Truleigh Hill one :)

See you next year!

Just wanted to echo all of the other comments. Superbly organised, lovely run and great marshals. Many thanks to all involved.

16 family and friends ran your well organised half marathon in memory of my son Justin on what should have been his 22nd birthday. We all wore butterflies on our vests. Most had never run anything like that distance before. It was a huge achievement for us all and the cheerful marshalls kept us going and the frequent water and food stops were a much needed excuse for a pause. Thank you for making the day an uplifting one when it could so easily have not been.

It takes great people to put on and support an event like this. It was a tough event made great by the people organising and supporting.Thank you.

Paul Chantler, Horsham Joggers, 08-May-2018

Thank you to the organisers and to all the volunteers - you did a fantastic job of keeping us all hydrated and cooled down despite the heat. It was very good training/rehearsal for Comrades next month.

Debra Bourne, Striders of Croydon, 07-May-2018

My first 3 Three Forts Marathon. Wow, a real tough one in 27 degrees (av) which peaked at 33 degrees. So glad for the more than plentiful water/food stations. So well organised - thanks to all the organisers and Marshalls out there.

Big thanks to the organisers for such a great event, and BIG THANKS to all the marshals, who kept us going with water, cheers and smiles.
Cant wait for next year

Mick Bahler, Vegan Runners, 07-May-2018

Really well organised event, easy parking, great snacks at water stations and so much lovely recovery food/drink at the end. Marshalls friendly and encouraging all the way round. Thank you so much to all the volunteers.

Great race. Did Half today but have done Marathon too. Fab feed stations, parking, marshals, cakes, and atmosphere. Faultless. See you next year??

Bob Pentland, Portsmouth Joggers, 06-May-2018

Brilliant event. Faultless organisation. Tough course but aid stations well stocked and manned and really appreciated all the drinks and cake at the finish. Thanks and great job to everyone involved

Great if slightly tough event. Loved the views, Marshalls and aid stations. Very well organised and supported. Thank you.

Excellently organised event! Plenty of friendly supportive marshalls at all the right places. Lots of aid stations with food and drink for much needed hydration. Amazing views all of the way around. Thanks to all the event team for making it so enjoyable.

A very well organised event wit lovely volunteers and marshalls. Plenty of well stocked aid stations along the course and the water was very appreciated on a hot day like today.

A massive thank you to all the support staff. They were truly excellent. Ensuring all runners were well hydrated and fed on such a hot day.
