In short: Good fun for good causes In full: I was glad to be taking part in this, a non-aggresive race all done in great spirit and camaraderie amongst the cubs who take part. It is all for charity in the end and that leaves you feeling like you've done an additional something special. My leg went past Hampton Court up to Kingston up along the Thames, and you can't fault the scenery this end of the river. I enjoyed it and feel my Sunday was well spent. Thanks to all those who make it happen. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Another well organised Alice Holt In full: This one is always well organised...Again this year was no exception. The course is still challenging in places with a good few undulations. Nice to run almost completely off road though on firm tracks.
Will be back next year. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Hot weather can't be helped, crowded in some places but good day out at the quay. In full: The start was very crowded but a good atmosphere but it must have been 30 degrees celcius that day and it sure felt hotter. The delayed start meant we were stood scorching in the sun for too long. The quay is a great setting and you can have a nice ice cream afterwards! Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Beautiful scenary, challenging course, great organisation. In full: After reading the course description as 'some gentle slopes' I did not expect the mighty hills we climbed and decended today, (so watch the course descriptions in other CancerResearch 10K's.) I enjoyed the race as it was multiterrain and support and organisation was excellent. I will do it again next year for sure. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Flat, fast fenland, fantastic organisation, friendly with fabulous support ........... that must make this race "f" ing brilliant. In full: Rates as my best ever event, everything you could want, the finishers medal is brilliant, if its within a 100 mile radius of you - do it next year. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Great atmosphere, fabulous freebies but long toilet queues In full: A flat easy course but suffered from too many people making it very squashed and slow further back. Goody bag was the best I've had yet and was full of food, samples and lucozade! I will do it again next year, the medal is top quality. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: nice route, well organised, weather just about right , pretty fast field though In full: was dreading the race if it was up to the beacon, thankfully it wasn't.Pretty flat in the end (odd hill over the motorway. Marshalls were excellent, and every k signage helped. For only my second race, i enjoyed this one again, but there were not many behind me, and I did a sub 50 time (first 10k)...
Well done Angels, nice race and will do again... Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Friendly atmosphere, pleasant mostly rural course, well-organised, goes through lovely N. Yorks, you get a mug, & raises funds for local hospital - can hardly fault it! Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Good, friendly marshalling, well-organised. Great route (if you don't mind hills) In full: A friendly event, with a picturesque route (never mind about the weather!) and some challenging hills. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Just a note to say I REALLY enjoyed this race, my and my husband had a great time. Well done, worth double the entry fee just to run the excellent route traffic free! And a Tshirt fruit and medal - I felt very spoilt after that, well done! Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Excellent 10k, good pb potential In full: Great bunch of people, very friendly. For a first time race the organisation would put some city races to shame. Loads of marshalls. Nice route, some off road, rest on country lanes. Mostly flat (very slight undulations). So impressed considering joining the club as a 2nd claim member. Well done folks.
