In short: great set of races In full: I have already reviewed Saxilby. Having competed at Gainsborough and Market Rasen I cant add much more.
Gainsborough was a more challenging 5K with a nasty little hill right at the end.
Market Rasen was a great run, lap around the racecourse then a road section, short run around good trails then back along the road and around the racecourse. As before organisation was excellent I will definately do these 3 again next year Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: Fantastic but brutal hilly race In full: Wonderful charity event. Really well organised - such good fun. Fantastic technical long sleeve - best finishers tops of all the races I do - decent material, decent graphic, and everyone's name on the back! Fantastic :) Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: good weather In full: do this race every year and this year got 1h36 after flying the course and even the weather behaved its self this year will be back next year Date of review: November 24, 2013
In full: Needed better signage and parking prior. A bit chaotic at the start. First of a few hills after about 400m. Country lanes were muddy and slippery and there seemed a lack of marshals and spectators mid race. Challenging but mainly downhill in the last mile. No memento, but a bottle of water, mars bar, banana and complimentary calf massage if required. Date of review: November 24, 2013
In full: Not to many frills with this race, turn up pay your money & run. This is a flat fast 10 mile race,not as windy as some years & not too cold. Enjoyed this race and will run again in 2014 Date of review: November 24, 2013
In full: Great race today in perfect conditions. Never done this one before if it's windy I can imagine the great orme being a real struggle. I don't think the great orme was too difficult except for maybe the last bit, but the run down gives you chance to make some time back.
My only gripes are: 1) no where near enough toilets at start 2) hate water out of those little cups with foil on 3) medal crap, and no goody bag Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: Great race and a nice medal In full: This is the second time I have run this race and a second pb. It is a great mix of club runners and individuel runners slow and fast. Some people may moan about it being a two lap race but that is not a problem. A great well organised race. Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: Good Race ,Well Organised In full: A good hilly race ran in near perfect running conditions .Its a bargain race ,but I would happily pay a bit more and have chip timing .Will be back again next year . Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: Great race and would definitely run again. In full: Well organised and lots of freebies. Roads aren't closed and so this is worth a mention - there were a few irate motorists as might be expected. Running around Wimbledon and London in general is always lovely though. One big hill - down and then up but easily a site for a PB. I got one as it happens! Date of review: November 24, 2013
In short: A nice Half Marathon In full: A good race again this year, well organised. However,no goody bag at the end? All that was on offer at the end was a bottle of Lucozade or water! The biscuit box was a nice touch last year. I was seriously low on energy levels at the end and something to eat would have been good! For the price, a goody bag should be included. I also don't think the medals are as good a quality as the ones given out in years gone by!I enjoyed this race though and the Great Orme was as brutal as ever! Date of review: November 24, 2013
