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
In short: enjoyed the race, the course was very testing but that makes it more interesting,well worth doing bettered last years PB. Well organised race definately do it again next year Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Well done organisers! In full: Well marshalled/ good signage/ majority off road (disused airfield) good chance of an SB if not a PB. Worth parting with your hard earned cash. Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Fast, flat and well-organised In full: A definite PB course. Running around the airfield is slightly energy-zapping, although it helped not being able to see more than 5 metres ahead because of the fog this year. Great race with fantastic organisation. Will be back next year - can someone order some less freezing weather plenty of time in advance though?! Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Excellently organised once again. In full: I was hoping to do better than last year, but was about 80 secs off target. Got a blister after 6 miles which got very sore by the 9 mile mark. Plenty of marshalls, some local support. I started too quick and suffered in the last mile for it. Lovely day for running. dont like the last 200 metres up the slope to the finish.

In short: Great organisation, nice course but not really a PB race because of the beach! In full: This race is great for a good challenge without worrying whether you get a PB. For me that's fine, it's really well organised and great facilities at Weston college. Would recommend to anyone. Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Enjoyable race once you're up onto the Hog's Back In full: Climb for the first 3 miles then you can almost relax for the rest of the race. Pleasant scenery despite the freezing fog and icy roads! Will be back... Date of review: December 11, 2005
