In short: Great flat course, friendly and well marshalled In full: 2nd year doing this and achieved PB. Generally well marshalled but start was not as well organised into timed groups as last year. Date of review: January 9, 2005
In short: A good course poorly organised In full: No defined start or finish point, no medal as advertised.URL for further information not valid. Number not sent out and had to be picked up on the day . Was told to be at venue by 2:00pm only to find the race venue was different to that of the venue where the number was to be collected and the race started at 2:00pm sharp, subsequently myself and others missed the start of the race and had to guess the first 1.25KM. By the time we got back to the start positon there was no one there to record times, an absolute shambles. The course itself was fine and on the plus side was adequately marshalled and policed.
In short: Certainly a quick course ... In full: ... however, I failed to achieve my target of 43mins by about a minute - must have been the effect of last night's blow-out!
Very well marshalled course.
Pre-race information would have benefited from confirmation of the start time and a simple map showing route for the benefit of supporters. Car parks were full when I arrived at 0925, but was very lucky to find a space quite close to the start. Date of review: January 9, 2005
In short: Deserves its RW rating as a top 100 race. In full: An excellent local race. Well organised, parking well signed, start clear, clear distance markers, enthusiastically marshalled. Will definately do this one again. Great PB potential. OK, so some of the roads were busy with cars but didn't seem to effect the pace of the field (atleast the bit around me!). Think the mug is a great idea, will use it at work! well done to all involved. Date of review: January 9, 2005
In short: Have run this event over many yrs, always enjoyable and a fast course with excellant organisation In full: The prizes list could do with better definition since although the paperwork clearly states first 3 males & females 35 / 45 / 55 the results are split into more 3 groups leading to a misconception that some have won a prize. i.e f45 includes f50 unlike that stated on results sheet posted on wall in the hall.

In short: True flat course. Well Marshalled. Will do again next year In full: Didn't like the single file running next to moving cars at one point, but it was great running faster than them! Date of review: January 9, 2005
In short: Good race overall In full: Second year I've done this and second year with everyone lining up before being told to move back. A simple sign with 'START'on it would remove the necessity for this shuffling.
Above a tiny complaint as otherwise race well organised. Date of review: January 9, 2005
In short: Good race. Got a PB. Weather much kinder than forecast but a bit breezy on the sea-front. In full: Could not really fault the organisation. Some traffic in second half of the race, but this is unavoidable - didn't really affect the pace.
Very enjoyable morning's work! Will definitely enter next year. Date of review: January 9, 2005
In short: Good event - well organised, nice part of the world, fairly flat In full: I think the starter said it was "slightly undulating" just before we set off - words that normally fill me with dread, as runners are terrible under-estimaters! But it actually is. There are a couple of climbs, but not severe. Very well organised and friendly - I will add this to my race calendar for next year and will look forward to it.

In short: A tough m/t run but with exciting bits and a good atmopsphere. Loved the rope climbs and seeing people opt out of the ropes and going for pure slide on your ass on the descents!! Will have achey legs tomorrow!! Date of review: January 9, 2005
In short: Fabulous race all round In full: Thoroughly enjoyable. Traffic was a bit close at one point,but we were going faster thanthem so it didnt matter. Well done SGRAC Date of review: January 9, 2005
