In short: A race you can make as easy or as hard as you choose / feel, great marshalling and adequate water stations. Please MORE TOILETS & water bottles not cups would be nice making drinking easier. Overall very good organisation definately do it again In full: Very well organised, Thank you it makes a big difference BUT more toilets please!!! A course you can make as easy or as hard as you choose / feel, great marshalling and water stations although it would be better if the water came in small bottles making drinking easier. Disappointingly not a PB for me today as awake with 2 young children on & off during the night but still enjoyed the fresh sea air. THANK YOU Date of review: December 4, 2005
In short: LOVED IT! Got a PB and the hills weren't so bad! In full: Did this last year and came back for more.. shaved 28 minutes off my PB so am well happy! The hills were a bit nasty but didn't really hit the wall this year and made it to 22 miles before I slowed. Organisation fantastic.. yes Luton isn't the prettiest of places and local support was ok - the kids through the housing estate were the best but I really enjoyed it and the relay adds that little bit extra. Will be back! Date of review: December 4, 2005
In short: Running as Santa - great fun In full: Good race but early start. Great goody bag and medal. Santa suits are very hot to run in so I didn't - walked it and got some great photos. Will do this every year. Date of review: December 4, 2005
In short: Beautiful day in a beautiful part of the world. In full: A couple of stewards not overly encouraging but a beautiful day in scenic surroundings made up for this. Prior to race our 14yr old son asked to use the toilets in the Mountbatten Centre and was refused entry, staff not helpful. Date of review: December 4, 2005
In short: Good race. In full: Lots of parking, good changing facilities, friendly bunch, fast route, marshalls urging you on, xmas pud as you cross the line, excellent refreshments for runners and supporters, and the town itself is well worth a look (good pub grub) Date of review: December 4, 2005
In short: good first 10 miler race In full: Today was my first ever 10mile run. Good weather no rain or wind. Every one was very friendly. Under estimated how hard the last 2 miles were. I'm proud to say we (TFF and Twiglet) maintained our usually 4 mile running pace all the way to the end.
In short: Tough windy course and according to my Polar a 1020ft climb In full: Well organised event with good and supportive marshalls. Course is very challenging as it covers tracks, wonky footpaths, roads and many twists and turns. It is not flat and is the hilliest Marathon I have run. I was absolutely wrecked when I finished this one Date of review: December 4, 2005
In short: So long and thanks for the chocolate Hobnobs! In full: This race improves each year - somehow it didn't seem quite as far this time out but that could just be me getting quicker. Lovely location, lovely marshals, lovely hills and lovely, lovely loads of mud. Thanks to a keen-eyed marshal, I was able to finish and collect my spot prize of chocolate biccies - they've all gone now but everyone really appreciated them on the journey back home! Long may the full monty continue as a freakishly weather-blessed pre-Christmas canter - you're all marvellous! Date of review: December 4, 2005
