Super race today, well done Clonmel a.c. Very well organised and marshalled throughout. Tough course with a killer climb around the 10 mile mark. Very humid too. Will definitely consider returning next year.

Hi John, just back from Clonmel. A great race, very well organised, before, during and after.Banished the ghosts of 2010 and definitely Clonmel AC, not the runners, Went the Extra Mile.
Agree with first comment tough course & very humid, light showers were a God send, imagine saying that this summer.

Great race, really well organised. Having the small bottles of water at every water station was great (cups are disaster). Three years in and Clonmel AC really seem to of gotten the hang of the half marathon business. Well done to all involved.

This was a great day, tough course but this amde it al the more enjoyable!! Marshalls done a great job and everyone of them took the time to urge me on with a comment or a clap. A lot of other over priced events could learn alot from this event.

I have ran alot of 10's and halves and I have to say that the Clonmel half is right up there.
Positives: value for money, goodie bag, technical tshirt, chip timing, well organised, food post race.
Negatives: Race is hilly but Clonmel is in a valley so expect nothing less. Doesn't impact on Dublin series and Ballycotton which are quite hilly.
Clonmel have definately learnt their lesson from last two years and I would expect this race to sell out over the next few years.
Vredit to organisers and helpers from Clonmel AC.

I was very dissapointed again this year with technical t-shirt sizes being only small left again.We had the same issue last year as well. Overheard a good few runners saying the same. The event is very well run by clonmel ac, just a pity it has happened again with tech top.

Fantastic day-well organised, nice t-shirts/ medals, relaxing grounds of college after finish line, nice tea and cake etc.

Negative- very poor Clonmel Half Marathon website

Well done Clonmel AC and Boston Scientific for sponsorship.
