In short: Unusual to do 10K on airfield but nice circuit In full: Loads of parking and pleanty of room to run as track is very wide all the way around. says it is flat but is very slightly undulating. Quite windy as it is very open in parts. Well worth turning up although I think the race should justify the £15 entry when others do it for much less. And finally t-shirts not medals please!

In short: Excellent Race In full: One of the best races i've competed in. Wonderful scenery, lovely sunny day, quiet flat country roads, well organised and marshalled. Can we do 2 laps next year?. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Scenic route complemented with sun and wind In full: Enjoyable, varied route (why has no one else mentioned the Viking Ship amongst all the other scenic features?). Great sea views. And who would have thought that starting and finishing by a decommissioned Power Station would work so well (you certainly can't miss it).
Plenty of marshalls and signs. Thanks to the kids wilth jelly babies - helped keep me going. Organisation at start and end was fine - not casual, not fussy either.
Could do with a bit more support en route. But sorry if my kids chasing me down the prom in Broadstairs got in anyone's way. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: One of my all-round favourite races In full: A great race, challenging but fun too, with very good organisation and marshalling. One that I shall definitely return to again - great stuff! Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Just done my 8th in a row intend to keep on doing year on year In full: Only problem is the race may become too popular. I did the 5th race with approx 150 runners now its 800 and it will keep on growing. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Well organised and friendly , all in a good cause In full: Organisation very good for a new event, easy access and parking, and started on time. The course had some tough hilly bits but was scenic and had a good mix of club runners and beginners Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: hard on the knees-great scenery-not enough water stations -should replace the medal with a t-shirt stewarding on the main road should have been strickter. see you next year! In full: i got there early around 10.00 parked next to railway station-no problems-was already changed. the race was very challenging but extremely enjoyable-met an old friend who i hadn't seen for about 10 years-good to see you Nigel Henry! NOT ENOUGH WATER STATIONS-and there should have been more people helping. Otherwise a good event and i will definitely be doing this again-i actually enjoyed the hills-actually overtook lots of people-i am a gluten for punishment. Obviously!
In short: A great first 10k - will definitely be back next year. Great organisation, plenty of parking and good idea to have starting slots equating to predicted finishing times. Well done SiS. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: This race was a great London warm up. The locals including the marshalls were great. A crisp cold morning with a slight wind kept you on your toes - keep running or get cold. Will visit again next year. Well done to Thanet! Date of review: March 6, 2006
