In short: Excellent race! A very friendly atmosphere! Will be doing it again! In full: A well organised race with very good marshalling! The course is a mixture of road and country park and the conditions were as to be expected for a very cold November morning. I found the club members and officials to be very helpful and friendly. A good race and a good Pud! Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: A lovely venue for a half-marathon, but possibly not the easiest race around! In full: I would say that this was the hardest half I have ever run. Lots of uphill stretches, and even the 6 mile run along the coast road back to St. Helier was no picnic after the previous 7 miles. I was still tired though, having run the Amsterdam marathon last month, so I'm possibly not the best judge. However, it was a glorious day, and the view of Mont. Orgeuil Castle from the road down to Gorey Harbour was memorable. Great organisation and excellent quality medal and tee-Shirt (though I did end up with one two sizes too big). Currently trying to shrink it! Jersey Spartans very hospitable, and other runners friendly, making it an all round great day! Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: flatter than a flat thing with extra flat bits! mmm cakes too! In full: pure PB course, couldnt be flatter, shame the last 0.1 of a mile was on a mudy school field though. Well organised and good cakes and tea at the end Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: great race, nice challenging course and great cakes at the end In full: well organised and friendly race, some hills though nothing too tough. Free cakes and tea at the end and a nice mug memento as well. Do it next year! Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Very enjoyable race In full: After having to withdraw from the Great North Run in September, I entered the Llandudno 10 as I wanted to do something with the training I'd put in and I only live 10 miles away from Llandudno.
I didn't know what to expect of the course - especially as the route crossed the main roads in/out of town. The organisation that went into it was fantastic, and the stewards were exceptionally encouraging.
I really enjoyed the whole experience and have been inspired to seriously consider entering other races mentioned in the goody bag for my own satisfaction, rather than for fund-raising. Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Great organisation, great value for money, and even the weather was perfect! In full: What a brilliant race. The organisation was perfect, the t-shirt and medal are of a very good quality, the atmosphere was great, and even the weather conditions were perfect. In short it is my favourite race of the year!

In short: Flat, fast, fun. In full: The weather did make it really. But the course layout, with its 2 turns, is good psychologically - with a nice straight 3.5 k run back to the finish as the pier gets nearer and nearer... Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: freezing but gorgeous scenery In full: Really good race - very cold and starting in the long frosty grass made my feet very wet and cold! However pretty scenery and quite enjoy the out and back. Did not like the last bit over the rough grass, definately scuppered my PB attempt. Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Great public and Marshall support,, great location, brilliant race! In full: What a fantastic day that was, stunning scenery at this time of the day in November! Car parking added about 20 mins to the morning and there were a couple of stressed motorist on the last mile - they were the only problems I had - everything else was pure magic! PB 1:49 on 'undulating' course ... can't be bad, I'm gonna go for sub 1:40 next year. Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Excellent location, well marshaled & marked out apart from the start which I didn't think was very well marked out, in-fact it wasn't until people started running that we learned which way we was suppose to run. I didn't hear a start signal either b Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Excellent fast run in cold conditions (but it soon warmed up when you got going!) In full: Good flattish out and back course. Meeting the faster ones comining back the other way, us slower ones knew where we were in the pack! Well organised and marshalled. A good mornings run. PB just spoilt by the grassy bits. Will be back next year. Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Excellent, well organised race! In full: This was my first cross country effort. It was well organised and marshalled. The water feature was not as bad as the steps at the end!! I will definately do it again next year. Date of review: November 21, 2005
