In short: Enjoyable barbeque with added running In full: Enjoyable day out, with about 25 miles of running between our team of 6 to build up a hunger for our bbq.
I took a long leg (5.41 miles according to GPS) which I soon regreted due to the uneven nature of the course aggrevating my knee injury. The long leg has about 4 hills which are worthy of note. Surface varies from flattened grass, longer, uneven grass, sand / gravel & a small strech of road. Date of review: June 26, 2005
In short: First time I have ever done a 10k, only running I have done before is to get last orders in at the local. Have converted me and have already entered my next 10k and doing the London Chest Hospital 10k... beter get training. Date of review: June 26, 2005
In short: Hills + hills In full: Nice race, lots of hills but its something different for a race in Essex! Makes me want to go back to the drawing board on my hill reps! Def worth doing again! Date of review: June 25, 2005
In short: A wonderful community event In full: A very hot day, but along the course the local population were treating us to encouragement and extra showers from hose pipes. Freckleton is a very friendly place. Date of review: June 25, 2005
In short: Worth another go In full: The problems with the late start and lack of water have been discussed thoroughly in the forum pages. Flat, fast route although a tad dull at the top end of the course where there were very few spectators. However, those elsewhere on the course were conspicuous by their silence. Real PB chance and with next years scheduled for 3 weeks earlier, I'll have another go, perhaps the full 26.2 Date of review: June 25, 2005
