In short: Great, well organised race. Good support from crowds. Enjoyed the city centre finish despite the hill at the end In full: Really enjoyed the race. Mainly flat course and really well organised. Plenty of portaloos at the start, efficient results service both on the website and direct to my mobile. Would recommend it to newcomers and seasoned runners. City centre finish was great especially as I had been able to park nearby. Date of review: May 14, 2013
In short: Excellent organisation, undulating course. In full: A great day out. Excellent scenery, brilliant organisation, fantastic marshals. If only the organisers could have flattened out the hills! Date of review: May 14, 2013
In short: Excellent, Friendly 10K In full: My First time running this 10K and certainly not my last. Non repetitive route with support all the way around. Excellent goody bag and treats as well as a good quality T-shirt and a medal specific to this 10K. Chip timing and numbers sent in advance. Free park and ride buses. Also family activities, live music, children's fun runs and stalls. A 10K suited to beginners and experts alike. Date of review: May 14, 2013
In short: Very enjoyable race as always In full: Look forward to this race every year and it just keeps getting bigger and better. Seem to get a new PB every year.

In short: Friendly Half with a few hills to keep it interesting In full: Nice run out on a bank holiday. Agree that the start wasn't great, walked through the start line as was very overcrowded, but after the first mile managed to get into my running.
Great amount of support along what is a very rural course, each village turned out to cheer people on which was nice.
Could do with more water stations and sponges to be able to cool daown as it was a warm one, but warnings were out for that a few days before.
Overall a nice friendly run which I will do again. Nice organisation. Date of review: May 14, 2013
In short: Good atmosphere as always In full: Its the key running event in Sheffield... brings the entire running community together, and introduces alot of others to the world of running which can only be a good thing - the whole city gets behind it and the atmosphere is great especially on Eccy Road. www.sheffield10k.com is also worth a look ( a shameless plug ) ... probably the best 10k course in Yorkshire? :-) ... Looking forward to next year. Date of review: May 14, 2013
In short: Well organised, great support, interesting course In full: I found this a great race. There are inclines and twists and turns but it did give variety to the course. Crowd support was great and the only fault I can think regarding the organisation was that I couldn't hear what was going on at the start. The stadium finish was icing on the cake. Not too crowded so didn't feel at any time that I was hemmed in. No queues for the loos at the start, now that doesn't happen very often! Plenty of water stations (bottles - yippee) and the people manning them were very efficient. A friendly race with a big marathon venue feel. I hope this marathon has many more successful years. This was meant to be my last marathon, but I managed to beat my Abingdon time and may be just maybe if the weather wasn't quite so hot I could just go a little bit quicker.... tee hee!

In full: Third consecutive time I've run this and after the hype and crowds and stress of London and other big city marathons, this is the perfect antidote......small, well-organised, friendly and boasting lovely touches like personalised drinks stations. It is a tough course but what goes up, must come down........ Date of review: May 14, 2013
