In short: Excellent Race In full: One of the best races i've competed in. Wonderful scenery, lovely sunny day, quiet flat country roads, well organised and marshalled. Can we do 2 laps next year?. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Scenic route complemented with sun and wind In full: Enjoyable, varied route (why has no one else mentioned the Viking Ship amongst all the other scenic features?). Great sea views. And who would have thought that starting and finishing by a decommissioned Power Station would work so well (you certainly can't miss it).
Plenty of marshalls and signs. Thanks to the kids wilth jelly babies - helped keep me going. Organisation at start and end was fine - not casual, not fussy either.
Could do with a bit more support en route. But sorry if my kids chasing me down the prom in Broadstairs got in anyone's way. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: One of my all-round favourite races In full: A great race, challenging but fun too, with very good organisation and marshalling. One that I shall definitely return to again - great stuff! Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Just done my 8th in a row intend to keep on doing year on year In full: Only problem is the race may become too popular. I did the 5th race with approx 150 runners now its 800 and it will keep on growing. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Well organised and friendly , all in a good cause In full: Organisation very good for a new event, easy access and parking, and started on time. The course had some tough hilly bits but was scenic and had a good mix of club runners and beginners Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: hard on the knees-great scenery-not enough water stations -should replace the medal with a t-shirt stewarding on the main road should have been strickter. see you next year! In full: i got there early around 10.00 parked next to railway station-no problems-was already changed. the race was very challenging but extremely enjoyable-met an old friend who i hadn't seen for about 10 years-good to see you Nigel Henry! NOT ENOUGH WATER STATIONS-and there should have been more people helping. Otherwise a good event and i will definitely be doing this again-i actually enjoyed the hills-actually overtook lots of people-i am a gluten for punishment. Obviously!
In short: A great first 10k - will definitely be back next year. Great organisation, plenty of parking and good idea to have starting slots equating to predicted finishing times. Well done SiS. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: This race was a great London warm up. The locals including the marshalls were great. A crisp cold morning with a slight wind kept you on your toes - keep running or get cold. Will visit again next year. Well done to Thanet! Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Fantastic scenary, but very tough, especially in the near-gale-force conditions. Trails of grass, mud, rock, and a bit of sand.Not a running vest in sight as everyone is necessarily togged up to the nines. Friendly support from the drink stations. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Great Race. A lot of effort put in by the organisers. In full: A couple of small problems with organisation at the start, however a good race with friendly people. Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: Its a personal challenge over some difficult multi-terrain. In full: You do not have to wait for the "mass start", which was a particular bonus. The elite overtake you at speed a while later !!! Some difficult under-foot conditions - requiring some caution at times. Very well organised and marshalled. The end of event breakfast was also a BIG plus. Date of review: March 6, 2006
