In short: Fast, flat and fresh. In full: A very good event with a pleasant course and good mix of runners. However, passing the finish area with 3 miles still to go was a drag. Date of review: June 8, 2005
In short: Great Beginner Event In full: Good atmosphere and not bad pace once you get through all the walkers, some of whom were allready walking by the Opera House, blocking the road, i am a runner, I entered the G M Run to run, not walk. I didn't expect a fast time but the walkers are a bit much. will do it again for the fun of it. Date of review: June 8, 2005
In short: Simply a great day In full: Four weeks after London, this was quite a contrast - 250-odd runners instead of 35,000, glorious countryside instead of Docklands - and all the better for it. Very friendly throughout, well-organised and a few "undulations" to make you feel you've earned your medal! I'll be back for more next year. Date of review: June 8, 2005
In short: Great race for beginners and veterans alike. Really friendly and good fun! In full: Three lap race, each lap having a long downhill and an equally long uphill. Organisation is relaxed and spot on. Everyone enjoyed it from first to last, well worth checking out for a good fun race. Date of review: June 7, 2005
In short: Well organised 4 miler on a fairly flat and fast course. In full: I would recommend this race to anyone looking for a well organised, flat course which is designed for the PB seekers and the beginners. If you enter the series you get a really nice T-Shirt. Date of review: June 7, 2005
In short: Love this course, even though it hurts! In full: This is year three for me and despite losing 2 minutes(!) on last year, I really enjoyed it and am now motivated to lose those minutes! Date of review: June 7, 2005
In short: A good 10 miler In full: A challenging run that kept the hills till the end - nice move! I have to agree with previous comments about the start - being a mid-packer (who got to the middle of the pack) I wasn't affected, but I can imagine the front runners were a bit put out. Everything else,however, was well organised and encouragingly marshalled. Thank you. Date of review: June 7, 2005
In short: "gently undulating" was how the Race for Life lady described the course ....... she was having a laugh! In full: "gently undulating" was how the Race for Life lady described it ....... she was having a laugh!
The course actually involved some very uneven terrain, was really quite hilly with one monster incline, and required dodging of the general public out for a Sunday morning stroll/walking the dog/having a fag.
Nevertheless, it was good fun and all in a good cause.
