In short: Undulating 10k In full: Small race, about 300 runners, undulating course on quiet lanes.
Good points: Friendly atmosphere, lots of marshalls, great t-shirt for finishers.
Down sides: Start a bit chaotic as main road isn't shut - would it be possible to start it in the school car park next time? Also, last 100 yards across the school playing fields are hard work as are the sharp bends just before them.
Overall though, definitely one I'd look to do again.
In short: Lovely race, fab marshalling In full: My only moan is at the (some) runners, not the race. Who needs to eat gels on a 1/2? And then to drop the wrappers in lovely rural Suffolk lanes? I counted 12 from a mid-table position. Fuckwits! Date of review: November 5, 2013
In full: Was not able to run in the end due to illness. I helped by marshalling and handing out T-shitrs and bags. Really enjoyed the morning and the good comments by the runners Date of review: November 5, 2013
In short: Fab race and organisation In full: This really is a fabulous race, everyone is very welcoming and friendly. Organisation is first class with results published very quick. The course is mildly challenging but fast!! Yesterday's race and times hampered by the strong winds but you can't them the organisers for that!!!
Really is a great event and will be back again next year without a doubt.
Well done Billericay Striders Date of review: November 4, 2013
In short: First DDD for me, many more ahead I hope. In full: An excellent race, well organised, an interesting, challenging route. Marshals were encouraging and positive as was support from the locals! Will definitely be returning next year. Date of review: November 4, 2013
In short: Friendly event, challenging and enjoyable in equal measure. In full: Really enjoyed my first attempt at this race. Enough hills to make it interesting with flatter sections in between to recover. The marshalling and organisation was superb and the goody bag is fantastic. Great technical tee shirt with firework theme. Would recommend this race to everyone. Date of review: November 4, 2013
