In short: A bit hilly but okay In full: That drag up the hill was a swine but plodding down the other side was a relief. Not a pretty route but the grey day did'nt help but I was grateful for the cooling rain. Might do it again as I am fairly local Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: I did the 3 mile fun run, and I hope to go back next year and do the race proper. Friendly and challenging, but bring a spare pair of shoes - you will get wet feet! Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: first timer but will definitely be back next year In full: Really enjoyed the run, perfect for husband and baby to investigate the park while I was plodding round. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: Not a fantastic event but not a bad event either. In full: Could have been better marshalled around the Sports club area. Too many people wandering around in the way of runners. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: A fast, well organised half with plenty of water/sponge stations In full: Plus points include excellent organisation and support from the marshalls. Plenty of parking. 5 drinks stations all of which had sponges (a welcome addition with the warm werather). Fairly flat so PB potential - I knocked 8 mins off mine! but there are some gentle climbs over the motorway.
Negative points include the lane at about 11m. Trying to run through a gate broke you from your stride a bit. Coming back through the town centre was busy with traffic and roadworks.
All in all a good, friendly, well organised half Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: Lots of marshalls and lots of water - who could ask for more! In full: As always this event is very well organized, and the abundance of water stations run by the local school children are great. Good support from the local crowd as well make this an enjoyable race with good PB potential Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: excellent In full: Rain stopped just long enough. Those tight packed stones for the trail are hard on the feet, but a good run. several short hard hills to wake you up. 4 Mins off last years time. nearly took a tumble on that down hill just off the fell and back on the track. That would have been some tumble. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: My first experience of this race: Great atmosphere and a good day out! In full: Although the first 6-7miles offer some long hills, the 2nd half of the race is down-hill or flat and could provide a PB opportunity. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: Need 2 start the runners at diff times,or have runners start at positions, was overtaking people who should have started way behind me, and it just slowed me down, became a bit frustrating!!!! Date of review: May 7, 2006
