In short: First ever race for me - If they're all this good I can't wait! In full: As my first race I can only hope that my experiences here were average, because if that's the case I will have many years of happy racing ahead of me. The marshalls, the crowd, the course and the weather were all excellent. I also managed to beat my target time of 100 minutes. Parking looked tricky for anyone arriving late.

In short: Excellent marshalling, local friendly race, with a well organised fun run attached. In full: Am very familiar with the course as it starts from where I used to go to college and goes past the scene of my first ever x country race! The marshalling was excellent, although I hardly saw any police the visible marshalls were proactive and totally in control- couldn't all be down to the delightfully polite nature of Cheshire motorists. In spite of the fact I never have a good run here I will keep doing it. Date of review: April 1, 2005
In short: I've competed several times. Organised by the Rotary Club so it's all for charity. The course includes a good run up Barr Beacon (if ever there was one!) and being a 12k event it's fairly unique, so plenty of chance for a PB! Date of review: April 1, 2005
In short: No better way to start a Easter weekend of pure indulgence! In full: One complaint, the single file path that went on forever and stopped any kind of overtaking probably cost me a PB. Date of review: April 1, 2005
In short: A good short work out around Mugdock Country Park In full: A good challenging 5K. A short hilly trail with pipers playing at each kilometre. It was really warm last year? If you are a beginner then this is a friendly run to do Date of review: March 31, 2005
In short: Didn't run the race myself, did the organising and results etc, but this is my rating for the 2004 event In full: Event was an overall sucess, an overwhelming majority of competitors enjoyed the course and its scenery. A few had comments with regards correct size T-Shirts and Water running out towards the end, toilet facilities and signage at HQ. Rest assured these points are receiving our upmost attention. We look forward to seeing you all in October 2005.
In short: Excellent race In full: Throroughly enjoyable race along the promenade linking Hythe and Folkestone. The only downside was the bottlenecks in the first mile, but I still did a PB, by almost 6 minutes. This is a very fast flat course. Date of review: March 31, 2005
In short: should have trained more but possible PB course - well organised and marshalled In full: A very scenic route which helped to ease me round with only 2 smallish inclines. Marshalling was excellent. Some of the early lanes were a bit narrow for the number of runners if you were near the back like I was at the start. Nice and flat so a good course for your first half Date of review: March 31, 2005
