In short: A good race, good course, but dont go off to fast first part of the race is fast down hill. In full: Good course, facilities, orgainisation, but be warned i've never done this race and it been cold - it can be very hot and there is little sun shelter - so take in the fluids. First few miles are down hill so take it easy, mild/hard climb from about 6 to 8. then down hill till the end. This race has been going ages and theres is always a great crowd even at my sluggish 75-80 mins for the 10 miles.
Its not that pricy considering how much organising a 10 miler takes and last years t-shirt was fab.
In short: 1/2 M Review: Potential to be a great Race In full: Only minor points. Price is a bit steep but then its similar to most big races these days. Only one gripe. Sort out the poor quality t-shirts - either dont give one out or ask people to pay. Mine lasted 1 week, before starting to disintergrate. Date of review: August 2, 2005
In short: Great organisation, flat but reasonably pretty course, definitely worth it. In full: Cheap, well organised, and I liked Victoria Park. Definite potential for PBs as I guess there isn't crowds there, and it's very flat. But also welcoming to beginners like me. Didn't like the lap structure as it's a little disheartening on your second lap to be lapped by men about to finish,when you still have a third lap left to go, but I guess that's more a personal thing! Really enjoyed it overall. Date of review: August 2, 2005
In short: Up, up, and up again. who said it was all downhill from Corfe Castle? In full: Brilliant day out, great cameraderie, and plenty of water all round. Car parking a bit pricey, I couldn't run fast enough to risk a short stay ticket. Date of review: August 2, 2005
In short: A very enjoyable race with a tough climb. Well organised, good support from locals in the town, would be good to see this race attract more runners in the future. Date of review: August 2, 2005
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.
