In short: Good race well organised. In full: Very good race over a slightly undulating to flat course. Doesn't make it a pure speed course due to the time of year and time of race. The race H/Q was excellent and kept the family well entertained while I was pounding the tarmac. I thought that the organisation was good. The goody bag - in my case a pair of Thorlos made the race gool VFM. Date of review: August 7, 2006
In short: Fairly flat course. A nice run. In full: Hot weather made for difficult conditions. Why don't summer races start earlier in the Day. I know that they want to make these 'family' events, and so want to give people a chance to get up a bit later on a Sunday, but at this time of year, you risk it being very hot (as it was yesterday).
9.30 or 10.00 start would be been better.
Will be back next year, as long as it's a cooler day!!!! Date of review: August 7, 2006
In short: Good race, well organised In full: Good race, although given the temperature another water station would have been good. Perhaps an earlier start time next year? Great marshalls and well organised. Will be back next year Date of review: August 7, 2006
In short: A dull race unfortunately, with misleading directions given in advance, causing us and others to be late - and then to find out it was a 10 min jog to the start!!!! In full: The directions to the race were misleading (promised that there would be signs everywhere for the race location as "car boot sale" - but there were non at all) and inadequate. Why not start races earlier in August? It is too hot at 11am. The race start was 10 minute jog from the parking. Date of review: August 6, 2006
In short: Good course, but extremely hot! In full: Generally not a bad race - but very hot day for it unfortunately. Given the heat another water stop would have been good. The event needs larger more visible signs on the road to make the start easier to find. All the marshalls were VERY supportive and gave lots of encouragement - thank you!
