I wonder how serious they take this half marathon as the top 3 marathon runners are out in rio and none of the world half marathon team showed up probably because they were aiming for rio,aai should really consider their dates......

A tough course but we shouldn't always be looking for "flat/fast" courses. The course profile (particularly 2nd half) along with the very strong headwind for pretty much all of the first 6miles took care of most peoples PB ambitions on the day. Still a day when your can run with a slightly different purpose, a championship race where focus turns to placings instead of times. Overall a good event put on by "Rock N Roll" and €35 is a reasonable fee for AAI member entry.
