In short: Nice race - but not Flat In full: Fee massage was great , the course is nice but there are one or two large undulations ( not so Flatchaps!) and tricky road crossings but I really enjoyed the course. Date of review: June 27, 2005
In short: What a friendly and well run day. To go to the effort of spraying potentially troublesome tree roots over a 30km route. Amazing! In full: As a minor aside I want to send a big thankyou to an annonymous Samaritan. Going through the first single file zone at the 1km marker before leaving the Cascades Centre a bottle of lucozade sport I was carrying in my waist belt came loose and fell out. With 400 runners right behind me I instantly had to decide that it was "lost" and carry on without it - otherwise I was liable to get trampled by impatient runners! About 100m later I felt a tap on my shoulder as one of the runners behind me had seen what had happened, picked it up off the floor and caught up with me to hand it back. Many thanks to that kindly Samaritan! In so many ways you saved my race!
In short: An enjoyable race. Beutiful scenery, but certainly not flat. In full: A very enjoyable event. A good atmosphere in a beutiful location. The weather turned out sunny, however it made running very hot. The hills were larger than expected and meant that my time was nowhere near my PB. But I thoroughly enjoyed the race and would recomend it. Date of review: June 27, 2005
In short: A mildly challenging course through some traffic free country lanes. Enjoyable scenery. Temperature was around 25 degrees at the start of the race & with the two water stations handing out water in plastic cups it was difficult to stay hydrated Date of review: June 27, 2005
In short: A great day out! In full: Thank you to all the organisers for such a fabulous race! I really enjoyed the whole race! Great goody bag and nice t-shirt! I also indulged and had a free massage before and after the race! The course had a variety of town and rural to keep you interested! I could find no fault and all for a fiver!

In short: A good turn up and run race In full: Really enjoyed it. Agree that water was not flowing too freely. Scenery ok, not as good as hoped given the semi-rural location. Start line was a little unclear. Excellent managing of route, esp stopping roads and signage (markers every km and lots of route markers). And I got a PB (although being only my 3rd 10k it's not surprising). The last hill is not that bad by the way. Date of review: June 27, 2005
In short: Great Event, if you missed it you missed out! In full: Fantastic event, great organisation from the parking right trough to course, water, sponges, venue, policing, marshalls - everything. Thanks to PLS. See you next time. Date of review: June 27, 2005
In short: Good course, very well marshalled with plenty of (much needed) water! Scenic finish. In full: Apart from the dubious distance (I heard it was 13.6 miles) this was an excellent, well-run event. The organisers have obviously learnt many lessons from their first go last year. Dundee has so much potential I hope they will be back bigger and even better in 2006 (and with a certificated 13.1 miles). Oh, and maybe not quite such a beautiful hot day, it was very tiring!
