In short: Friendly and well organised race. This is a race for runners organised by runners, with all those extra little touches that make a difference. Definitely worth doing even if a PB is unlikely. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: Uninteresting race In full: I found it difficult to find my way to this race. As some one who doesn't know Plymouth again it would have been helpfull to have some directions from a couple of miles out. Also once in the car park I had to ask people where to go. very nice massage and decent medal. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: A February race, so you take your chance with the weather... but that's really the only downside. Well organised and enjoyable. In full: Hail, snow, rain, freezing wind, and the odd little hill (primarily the last one before the finish - ouch!!)... all worth enduring for the beer :) A bit lonely out at the back with the ~2 hour people, but the marshals were all very encouraging.
It was rather unfortunate that the scheduled 8am decision on the race's fate (possible cancellation due to weather) was not put on the website as promised, at least not by 9am when I imagine many runners would have had to leave home to get to Bungay. This would have taken some of the load off the constantly-busy phone lines. Possibly the only black mark for an otherwise excellent race. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: Good race this. Nice atmosphere, fairly well organised. Several sneaky inclines and lots of turns made it challenging. Housing estate bit rough, but nice run. Would do this again. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: Mud,water,ditches,cold and a bit more mud!! In full: Excellent race even though it was cold, well marshalled,testing underfoot with water splashes,ditch crossings,stiles and muddy fields but it was great!!!!!!!!!!! Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: Great run In full: Really enjoyed this run - nice to see no cars and only nice views during the race. Only things that I would have changed to make the day perfect was the cups of water at the stations, I personally prefer bottles so that you can sup the water on the way round also Im not so sure that the markers were very accurately placed and the start line wasnt very clear. All in all a fantastic race that I would not hesitate to recommend to friends. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: New course, which was more like cross country at some points. Snow and hail, big muddy puddles, but still a very good race. In full: Very well organised, bottle of beer, banna and hot soup when you finish. My favourite 10K race of the year. Date of review: February 20, 2005
