In short: Very well organized race,superb goody bag. In full: Great atomosphere at the finish,lots of families about in fancy dress which added to a thoroughly enjoyable day. The course was testing but still managed a pb. Superb Goody Bag,see you next year. Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: A challenging but throughly enjoyable and friendly race. In full: Stunned I got a PB today as hills aren't my speciality! :o) Seems there were a fair few PBs though so maybe the glorious sunshine and scenic course spurred us all on! Was a great race and the best organised half I've done. Will be back next year. Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: thankyou to the marshalls... In full: ...you were really encouraging. My first time for the Bedford Half and very pleased with the organisation of the event. Pre race details were excellent with map and profile of the course. Nothing too challenging regarding hills - well worth the run!
In short: Well organised race over a testing course, very little support the whole way round though. In full: Overall a good race to finish the year with , some good hills to spread the field out and nice free running at the front. Very little by way of support during the whole 13 miles, suprising for a town that gave us the great Paula Radcliffe.But in terms of pure running, a very good race. Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Great for a first timer like me In full: I've never done a 10K before and this was a brilliant introduction. Almost pancake flat although the airfield seemed to go on forever! Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Enjoyed this one - back again next year! In full: I thought this was a great race, despite the rather endless hill, the icy fog and the finish not being in the same place as the 8 mile marker (an unwelcome suprise!!) I really enjoyed it.
Psychologically I felt fantastic - having got to the top of the Hogs Back without walking (I was a bit concerned about that) I felt like I could do anything - and despite having a few painful moments (that last hill up the drive to Losely House anyone?), it was all good.
Fingers crossed for a clear day next year - the views would have been spectacular. Date of review: December 11, 2005
