In short: Fantastic , but hard In full: Most runners I spoke had already run the race a number of times which says a lot about the race. The atmosphere was great but the route will punish those who go out to quick as it is very demanding. The Chalk messages on the roads like on the tour de france was a nice touch. Thanks to the organisers on this one, even though there was a slight mix up on the start times. Great race had a real laugh on the way round and managed to beat the monkey!

In short: Lots of vasriety, the 2 and a half mile hill is over at the beginning, exhilarating In full: I have run this three times and love it - the small but skilled and experienced field, the well thought out route, supportive local people, police and marshalls. One minor criticism - there should be some "Caution runners" signs up as the route is shared with lots of traffic (well-managed by marshalls) the whole way. I suggest runners wear bright clothing for drivers' benefit. One lady insisted running down the middle of the road - not very safe for anyone! Date of review: November 23, 2005
In short: good effort by all In full: the km markers could of been better sighted for all to see and at least one more feed station at the half way point maybe for next Brighton 10k (2006) Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Ice puddles and more hills than expected - but lovely marshalls In full: Great race - only 81 people as it was very cold and icy but the marshalls were lovely helping us poor peeps at the very back. Will def be back next year with the aim of not being last. Date of review: November 22, 2005

In short: Excellent race! A very friendly atmosphere! Will be doing it again! In full: A well organised race with very good marshalling! The course is a mixture of road and country park and the conditions were as to be expected for a very cold November morning. I found the club members and officials to be very helpful and friendly. A good race and a good Pud! Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: A lovely venue for a half-marathon, but possibly not the easiest race around! In full: I would say that this was the hardest half I have ever run. Lots of uphill stretches, and even the 6 mile run along the coast road back to St. Helier was no picnic after the previous 7 miles. I was still tired though, having run the Amsterdam marathon last month, so I'm possibly not the best judge. However, it was a glorious day, and the view of Mont. Orgeuil Castle from the road down to Gorey Harbour was memorable. Great organisation and excellent quality medal and tee-Shirt (though I did end up with one two sizes too big). Currently trying to shrink it! Jersey Spartans very hospitable, and other runners friendly, making it an all round great day! Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: flatter than a flat thing with extra flat bits! mmm cakes too! In full: pure PB course, couldnt be flatter, shame the last 0.1 of a mile was on a mudy school field though. Well organised and good cakes and tea at the end Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: great race, nice challenging course and great cakes at the end In full: well organised and friendly race, some hills though nothing too tough. Free cakes and tea at the end and a nice mug memento as well. Do it next year! Date of review: November 22, 2005
In short: Very enjoyable race In full: After having to withdraw from the Great North Run in September, I entered the Llandudno 10 as I wanted to do something with the training I'd put in and I only live 10 miles away from Llandudno.
I didn't know what to expect of the course - especially as the route crossed the main roads in/out of town. The organisation that went into it was fantastic, and the stewards were exceptionally encouraging.
I really enjoyed the whole experience and have been inspired to seriously consider entering other races mentioned in the goody bag for my own satisfaction, rather than for fund-raising. Date of review: November 22, 2005
