In short: Great, and constantly improving race. Well reccomended. In full: The organisers are not blessed with the best facilities. Little car parking and poor facilities at race HQ. Yet what they achieve despite this is amazing. The logistics of parking in lots of different places, in some cases over a mile away and having shuttle buses is pretty remarkable.
Clearly lessons learnt from previous years have led to constant improvements and it gets better with age.
The marshalling is top notch. Good traffic control with good amounts of encouragement.
T shirt is a good quality one.
This one has become a regular feature on my racing calendar and based on this year, it will continue to.
In short: An Excellent challenge - So glad I entered In full: Was extremley nervous before the race as most people had running club vests on and I was beginning to think that I was out of my depth. This is my first attempt at this distance and throughly enjoyed the race, especially when the wind was behind us. The organisation of the race was excellent, well done to all the helpers and marshalls. Date of review: January 20, 2008
In short: great race, good spirit well organised In full: I really enjoyed this race today, I struggled in the last 2.5 miles, but not because of the inclines, more to to lack of distance over 10miles. The car parking was well organised, two seperate changing areas, bag security, refreshments, good L/S shirt for all runners and goodie bags for all finishers. The event was well marshalled by helpful and enthusiastic people. It is easy to get to (just off the A1)....and the hills are not too bad either. Thanks to Yaxley RC Date of review: January 20, 2008
