In short: Good course, really enjoyed the run, though the wind in the face hurt me on the 2nd lap. Good atmosphere. Would do it again In full: Really enjoyed this run considering the old shin splints were kicking a bit yesterday. Nice view of the lakes going out and nice wind pushing you home. Shame no t-shirt but massive bling medal....
Big thanks to she warrior who got me home,without you i'd still be there. Your my shining star.... Date of review: February 26, 2006
In short: A new meaning for moderate hills! but a friendly well organised race In full: Going well till 12 miles then crashed and burnt but kept going by some great people. Many thanks to the surveyor from London without your help I would have been overtaken by the local ramblers! Date of review: February 26, 2006
In short: Freezing cold but fun. Had to run fast to keep warm! In full: Stood shivering at the start with the snow falling. Set off gently as muscles has ceased up! A nice paced run with beautiful scenery. The long part out of the village and back was off-putting though as you could see the faster people coming back the other way! Having to run one lap past the finish at the end was tough. Really nice medal - quality :-) Date of review: February 26, 2006

In short: My first half marathon, and I got a far better time than I was expecting. As well organised as shorter races I've run, although I'd have prefered a t-shirt to the medal. The scenery is OK, at least there's the sea all the way even if it's monotonou Date of review: February 26, 2006
In short: Ron is back! Thoroughly enjoyable race, well-organised and a fast course. In full: Enjoyed this one - just a bit on the breezy side on the way up to Bispham but otherwise great conditions. Big field too, although surprisingly only 1100 odd finished from an alleged 1500 on the start line. Enjoyed the views of the snow-covered Coniston Fells from the lower walk.
Well-organised and fast - Ron's back on form. Lots of water on the course - but hardly needed in the ideal temperature this morning! Date of review: February 26, 2006
In short: Nice flat course around Bute Park. Also for £7 or £8 (depending if you are a club runner) you get a running shirt and a medal, so great value for money. I will be doing this one next year. Date of review: February 26, 2006
In short: What goes up must come down fortunately! In full: Yes, it was very cold - hardly anyone's fault and that hill was unexpected. Intend to do it again next year. Amazing how Eastbourne iteself has developed in the last 10 - 20 years. Loved Sovereign Harbour despite the wall of wind! Date of review: February 26, 2006
In short: Cold day, but wind on ones back on the one long flat section. In full: I do this one because it's on my doorstep. Marshalling was a bit spartan. The start was a bit chaotic with traffic still moving through the line up 5 mins before the off. Date of review: February 26, 2006
In short: Tough run in the cold & wind, Great event." I'll be back" In full: Fantastic loved the mud a great challenge. Scenery great veiws once summits reached. Thanks to all who marsheld in the cold wind & Pewsey Vale Club for another great event. Date of review: February 26, 2006
