In short: What a nice start to a Sunday! In full: Enjoyed this. Shame about missing mile markers between miles 7 and 10. Usual toilet niggles. Otherwise very well organised with good water and Lucozade stops. Nice mug to show off to visiting (tea drinking) friends!
In short: Good support, run spoilt by the less than scenic course In full: Very well supported through the city centre but the route took the runners out through the less than scenic areas of this picturesque City, meaning tht the more scenic parts went unnoticed. seems also to be getting more and more expensive each year with diminishing rewards.

In short: Very impressive in all areas - well done organisers! In full: I've smashed my PB, and gone sub-90 minutes for the first time, so I'm obviously delighted... and I've got to sing the praises of this race in all areas. Fantastic organisation, plenty of supportive marshals, accurate mile markers... Can't find any faults, and would recommend this race to everyone. Date of review: March 20, 2005
In short: Excellently Organised - Good Fun Half In full: A round of applause for all the marshall's round the course - they were fantastic, superb organisation. Testing latter half to the race but great support at the finish Date of review: March 20, 2005
In short: Pleasant course with a few ups and downs to test you. Mile markers only on a 10K race, bit strange - also not sure they were very accurate when I looked at my splits. Date of review: March 20, 2005
In short: Excellent run! Managed a PB with 2 mins off previous time. Hard work in places, but also had it's downs as well as it's ups!! Enjoyed the Lucozade drink - kept me going . Organisation was brill. Well done Ackworth!! Date of review: March 20, 2005
In short: Well organised pre-London event. Gives confidence that training has gone well. Course is hilly and largely traffic free. Will include Bedford in my Spring marathon training again IF I decide to run another after London!! Date of review: March 20, 2005
In short: Very well organised. Friendly and encouraging marshals. Liked all the special touches. In full: When you received the instructions for this race ( great colour map of the course and good local map of parking, start and finish)it appeared that this going to be a supremely well organised event. This turned out to be the case. Top marks to the organisers. Date of review: March 20, 2005
