In short: Flat and perfectly organised In full: Excellent, from the abundant smiley marshalls to the plentiful car parking, the flat roads and the perfect weather. All the good points of an intimate local race with the organisation and feel of a large event. Well done to all concerned, especially the marshalls who not only did their jobs well but looked like they were enjoying it. Very supportive ~ thanks guys. Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Challenging trail race for a worthy cause! In full: Well organised race, well marshalled and above all, friendly! Good presentation after, with the attendance of an ex-Vets world record holder, nice touch! Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Fantastic race In full: One of the best races I've done so far, and not just because I, plus about 80% of others I spoke to ran a PB. The course was interesting, the marshalls were happy, the weather was chilly but perfect and the down-hill section at the end was just what you needed for a quick finish. Will definitely be back next year. Oh - and a great top to keep you warm on the way home! Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Good race, well marshalled. Not flat! In full: I enjoyed the race but all chance of a PB went out of the window with the start. People just couldn't break up as the road funnelled people for a fair while.
Nice mix of terrain. Hill at the end took the sting out of a sprint finish! Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Nice fast course - always a good RW turn-out In full: Excellent race. The double out and back course means you see everyone else twice during the race. Only niggle is this year the water at the finish line ran out. Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Glorious morning and excellent fun. In full: Lovely race with good support and very well marshalled. Thanks to the lady runner who gave me a hard time for the last three miles, I think she saved me about five minutes ! Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Organisation fantastic, quick course and great T shirt. In full: This is a great event. My first time. I've run 5 half marathons this year and this is definitely the best. A very special race. Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Lovely flat route. Glorious weather this year. Well marshalled. In full: A great route to run, though a little cramped in parts - pedestrains in the last stretch. But well marshalled throughout. Invisible km markers a shame. No water at the end, terrible, but hey ho. Could have done with a water station at the 6.5k. Overall though a great run to participate in. Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Thank you Riverside - excellent again, with the frost making it beautiful In full: Very friendly, excellent organisation, good t-shirt, and for the second year in a row I set a PB! What more could you ask? Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Interesting varied route In full: My first ever 10 mile race, so I don't have anything to compare it against, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The route was varied, across country lanes, farmers tracks and residential estates, and the marshalling was good all the way through. It was quite undulating, but it certainly stopped things getting boring!
We were warned that parking could be very difficult but we didn't have too much of a problem finding a space. Thanks to the event organisers. Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: good for a laugh. weather fantastic. great cakes In full: Arrived late due to crash on M25 so no queue for number! no toilets open though! cargo nets and hay bales were good apart from the net on the pebble beach (knees hurt at the thought of it!). other than that was really good!
