In short: Great route through some really nice countryside. Hills are mildly challenging without being a killer. This was my first non-marathon race and I really enjoyed myself. Beat my best expectations by 6 minutes! Date of review: January 25, 2010
In full: Only my second 10 miler and i thoroughly enjoyed it. The start was very cramped but once it widened out it was an enjoyable run. The stewarding was friendly and capable and we were directed around flooded parts of the road with ease. I will definitely be back next year. Date of review: January 25, 2010
In short: Twas a good race. Well organised but challenging. Would do it again but it might not be for beginners as it could be a bit intimidating as most people seemed to be club runners. Date of review: January 25, 2010
In short: Race was very well organised - shame there were no ladies showers though :-( In full: Pros - HQ well signposted and lots of parking and toilets - Very well organised, marshalls very visible and very helpful and cheery - Water stations at 2M, 5M and 8M with lovely lemon squash aswell as water - Finish times available straight away - Gorgeous energy bar at the finish - Official photographer with photos available same day
Cons - No ladies showers despite a very muddy course - 400m from HQ to race start was a tad optimistic!
Overall a fab race with some long gradual hills, the only downside being there were no ladies showers
In short: good testing course... will defo. do again In full: V.different run to previous years...more interesting/fun but also more challenging as whole course is gently undulating.Organisation slick and marshalls fantastic and enthusiastic.Only gripe was the massive timing chip which didn't even measure start to finish...but guess that's why we wear stop-watches!
