In short: Another lovely run out in the Country lanes, saw 4 cars in 40 mins ! In full: Lovely run away from the smog, nice atmosphere and friendly crowd, must have been 50% Wilmslow runners, 50% others !
Not as undulating as I was led to believe, if not for the 12 mile run the day before, definately PB potential.
Bonus was unidentified club runner sprinting through the gate to overtake me, maybe not realising finish line was a small loop away and not right in front of you...caught him by the end, bliss !
In short: Good course. Mega quick to 5km point and then moderately quick to end. Overall definite PB course if you don't go off too fast. Changed finish line this year, prefered the previous finish line. Date of review: April 30, 2006
In short: Great race - nice to have chip timing In full: have done this race a few times before so know the route well - great idea to have chip timing - entrance fee was very good to include chip - bigger races take note - will be back next year thanks to all involved - very friendly all round Date of review: April 30, 2006
In short: Great race! In full: Nice atmosphere, very welcoming irrespective of ability level. Lovely route along winding lanes with no steep hills but lots of undulation, not one for a personal best! What a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Date of review: April 30, 2006
In short: Lovely run round the Queen's back garden In full: Warm day & a big hill did nothing to spoil what has to be one of the most picturesque 10Ks around. There was no water but they say on the pre-race pack that there will be no water so why are so many surprised? Same t-shirt and medal as last year - can we at least have a bit of a redesign for next year! Date of review: April 30, 2006
In short: Enjoyable. In full: A pleasant race through nice lanes, final mile up hill but very enjoyable. Not much support out on the course but friendly marshalls and good organisation generally. Date of review: April 30, 2006
In short: Lovely weather, lovely course, very well organised. In full: First time for this course, but really enjoyed it. Well organised and well marshalled. A nice friendly atmosphere. Only possible grumble was the number of toilets available - seemed a little on the low side given the numbers attending. I hope to be back next year. Date of review: April 30, 2006
