In short: Perfect run for marathon build-up In full: Enjoyed the course,ran a fast pace but it was a bit spoilt by lack of water and only given another t-shirt, would rater have drinks and snacks instead because they are useful at the end of a 20 mile run, but hope to be back next year otherwise.

In short: Some of the nicest scenery of any race i have done. In full: Its a puzzle how the wind seemed to be in my face on the outward and inward legs of this race. Great views and well organised by nice friendly people. Would reccomend it to anyone. Date of review: March 8, 2006
In short: Flat flat flat In full: What a good race. There was plenty of parking, plenty of facilities, plenty of encouragement from marshalls and spectators, plenty of wind!
Only bad point is that people wanting to leave before everyone has finished have to wait for a gap between runners and then go for it! I was one of those trying to get out and I couldn't help but think that it's not good for the runners left to finish.....they should have a clear run.
In short: First time I've run this 10K & really enjoyed it. Marshalls excellent. Quite difficult for a PB because of 3 times up the hill (which isn't steep) but at about 8K & 3rd time around begins to hurt. Date of review: March 8, 2006
In short: Well organised race over a very tough course. In full: Well organised race over a very tough course. Unless you've only done a few races it won’t be one for a PB. It’s not just the two long hills but there about 20 acute angled turns, which makes it difficult to keep any rhythm going. That aside, it is really well organised with a wonderful location. I’ll definitely be back next year. Date of review: March 8, 2006
In short: Good race will be back next year In full: Great venue, lots of parking excellent organisation and room to move. The course was flat and the venue exposed which meant no shelter from the wind on the day. The last 2k seemed straight into it which slowed the progress. Would be back to compete again.
