In short: Down came the rain... In full: Weather didn't spoil the occasion, it just helped cool us all off, evident in the lack of people grabbing water off the martials half way! It's a fast flat course, the towpath's not bad. Good marshalling, the parking wasn't too near but that's no fault of the club, thats down to the leisure centre being rebuilt. Lot's of fast club runners, nice atmosphere. I like the golden medal! Not a bad race at all for a few quid reallY! Date of review: July 24, 2005
In short: The rain seemed to make it easier than normal In full: Good friendly race. The rain did dampen the atmosphere a bit pre and post race as people didn't really want to stand round in it. However the rain also probably kept a lot of dog walkers and cyclists off the tow path which was good. Date of review: July 24, 2005
In short: Great fun - and very appropriate to see so many ducks given the weather In full: Very enjoyable, lots of friendly marshalls, and the rain was actually a blessing as it helped cool me down after having started way too fast!
Will definitely look to do this again next year Date of review: July 24, 2005
In short: Fast and flat. Part along riverside is scenic. In full: Unclear where start line was and not enough bag storage. Otherwise a good race - fast and flat with a pretty bit along the river. Date of review: December 20, 2004
