In short: cracking day out, no complaints here. In full: to be honest i didnt notice the km marker problems. i had a great time on my first 10k, i live in coventry now (someones got too) but i was born and bred in incoln and i'd forgotten how lovely it is. did the great north run in 2004 for my first 1/2 marathon and both events are great for beginners and improvers and full blown atheletes alike. the lincoln race was my last for this year as i've injured my back so not gnr this year along with loads of other races this year but i will be back in lincoln in april, cant wait.

In short: A great race with stunning views In full: What can I say a very challenging course and 20ish miles instead of 17 very easy to get off track .very friendly and helpful Marshalls a great banana station, the flies yuck and very narrow ledge that was slippery and mountains not hills and cakes and sandwiches for those that wanted them.I can see this is most peoples caledar for next year.

In short: not even a bottle of water when you finish... In full: no goody bag, no water, no medal - a glass cup - for completing 50km on a 14 lap course. I wish there could have been signs like: 40km (12 laps) eg... Date of review: August 1, 2005

In short: I was well and truely smitten by the Gravy 6 In full: If you didn't experience the gravy 6 trail race in 2005 make sure you do it in 2006.
Primarily along the Longendale trail and taking in a loop of one of the many reservoirs in the area this race is perfect for those who like getting out into the fresh air of the countryside; away from the confines and the monotony of built up areas and traffic clogged roads.
Well done the Gravy lads it was a huge success, long may it continue.
In short: Good for beginners and fantastic local people!! In full: Good for beginners as you can hide amongst the crowd :) The organisation was very good with a water stop after about 2 miles. The local people are very welcoming! I've only done two races and they were both here. A must run for the beginner! Date of review: August 1, 2005
