In full: Fantastic race, fantastic organisation and a fantastic gift at the end! Knocked 10 minutes off my time from last yr! Jelly babies and Jaffa cakes at feed stations were a fantastic addition. Can't wait to return next year!! Date of review: March 10, 2013
In short: Excellent In full: I've done a lot of 20 mile races over recent years and this was a good one. Parking and directions etc to HQ were easy to follow, no fuss picking up number, reasonable toilet queues (and for proper loos!). The race briefing was great and helped everyone relax a bit. The marshals on the course were lovely and so smiley (they must have been freezing out in the rain for hours). A great course, nice countryside scenery, a few inclines but no really significant hills. I have enough t shirts / medals etc so a water bottle was a nice touch and something different that I may actually use. Well done WAC I will definitely consider this again for a spring marathon training run. Date of review: March 6, 2012
In short: A very well organised picturesque race with PB potential In full: Although it was a wet windy cold march morning the atmosphere was great with fantastic organisation, helpful marshals, quick and easy collection of race numbers/chip and a cosy club house to wait in before and after the race, the course was fantastic with very picturesque views and was well marshalled with definate PB potential. My only criticism was there was no medal for finishers only a plastic water bottle for a 20mile race, which was disappointing as this was my first 20miler and would have been nice to have something better to remember it by> Date of review: March 5, 2012
In short: Superbly organised and marshalled local road race In full: My first time doing the Wymondham 20 and I was very impressed. Nice to have a clubhouse to shelter in before the race and very easy to pick up number and chip. The run itself was much flatter than I was expecting, even for Norfolk and this is definitely a quick course for 20 miles. The marshalling is some of the best I have come across, numerous in number and all giving fantastic support, a big thank you for so many of you giving up your Sunday to make such a successful race. Many thanks to Lucy and Kim (on the bike) who pulled me through the last 10 miles so that I ended up breaking my 3 hour target by a massive 16 minutes!! Those expecting goodies at the end may be disappointed but at £12 i don't know what you can expect, it's great value and perfect for spring marathon training. Will be back another year for this great local run Date of review: March 5, 2012
In short: Very well organised ...... well worth doing as a spring marathon warm up race In full: A very friendly race over a slightly undulating course (that's flat compared to Ashby20 & Oakley20 standards). ....and as one of the many smiling marshals on a water station pointed out to me you see more of the lovely countryside doing their race then running round in the dark in RNR. Well worth doing as a spring marathon warm up 20 or if your keen on 20 milers for fun.
In short: Excellent race, well organised, great preparation for a Spring marathon In full: 3rd year running this, and it never disappoints. 8 minute PB as well which can't be bad! The marshals were excellent, always encouraging....and I loved the comment from the little girl who handed me my mug at the end "You were awesome"!!! Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: Excellent organisation. Frequent water stations. Superb marshalls with a smile and genuine encouragement despite standing in the cold for hours. All for a reasonable entry fee and a useful prize (mug) at the finish. Date of review: March 6, 2011
