In short: Nice Summers evening race. In full: A very nice route, streches of countryside and rural, nice hills, great for stamina building, was a pain to drive to on the M25 but deffinetly worth it. Good organisation Date of review: July 14, 2005
In short: Enjoyable but I could have done much better. In full: The scenery was immense. I thought that it was a nice idea having it in the evening although travelling down the M25 in the rush hour is never to be recommended. Had I not messed up my pre race snack I could have PB'd in under 37 mins but nausea and two terrible stitches put a stop to that. I'll be there next year. Date of review: July 14, 2005
In short: Nice route, good spread of running types, good support at the end, whatever your time! In full: Hill at 7kms is hard, but checking with the forum had prepared me for this. Rest of run is very nice, mix of country lanes and residential roads, with a nice stretch at the end back in the park, round the lake. And orange segments at the end - fab!

In short: Surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK the run went along a dual carriage ways and through housing estates. It starts from a pub and holiday complex that looks like a Bulgarian Ski resort. Date of review: July 14, 2005
In short: great organisation, great weather followed by great beer In full: Nice to see a race start spot on time. I enjoyed the (traffic free) town section and was pleasantly surprised at the splendid park sections. The sharp down-hill turns were a bit tricky and the exit hill was taxing second time round. Water water everywhere... Nice tee (would prefer a medal) and the banana and orange at the end was a nice touch.
Many thanks to the organisers and people of Preston for closing their town for us.
Back next year, deffo Date of review: July 14, 2005
