In short: Cannot fault the Organisation and a great finish in the football stadium In full: Really enjoyed the race plenty of surport from the spectators and marshalls and a band playing all helped to make a great atmosphere Date of review: May 14, 2006
In short: First time I've done a race twice - it wasn't what I remembered. In full: Lets get this straight this is a really well organised mid to largish 10k. There can be no real gripes which the organisers could really do anything about.
The only minor whinge I had was that in the city centre the course tape could be better set out, a couple of times I found myself on the wrong side of the tape and effectively off course.
That said I didn't remember how hilly the course seemed from last year - going over the raised by pass twice certainly took its toll.
Whilst I'm making up reasons for not getting a pb I must also say the hard paths in the park section were very slippery together with some sharp turns I felt off balance on a few occassions.
That said it is a real cracking finish running round Pride Park, even for a Leicester fan, I will be back next year. Date of review: May 14, 2006
In short: Garmin says 10.6k but still a PB. In full: Lots of additional extras - bananas, muscle rub, drinks, etc. Good entertainment for spectators waiting for runners coming back to the stadium. Date of review: May 23, 2005
In short: Good, quick course but poorly organised start In full: Second time I've done this and I ran a pb so I like the course, especially the finish in the stadium. However, the start is poorly organised, the marshalls need to be more directive with such a large amount of competitors. Date of review: May 23, 2005
In short: shame about the baggage area not being secure otherwise another good morning racing. In full: 2nd time i'd competed in this race course better than last year only other fault was waiting like a herd of cattle to collect water and hand in chip etc. Apart fraom that managed a p.b. fantastic! Even the kids joined in by completing in the funrun Date of review: May 23, 2005
