In short: I love this course in my home town but the cost is too much. In full: A nice flat PB-potential rich course that I love running at any time. I don't want to come across as a misery guts but I really felt the entry fee was far too high for a 10K. While I fully support Kidney Wales in their cause I feel the event is now more about the charity than running as a sport and for the enjoyment of running itself. I appreciate that road closures etc cost a lot to police and maybe Cardiff County Council should be helping out there? The t-shirt was pretty awful (pink!) and didn't make any mention of the race itself. Perhaps the entry fee could be slashed by scrapping the t-shirts and the glossy (expensive looking) brochures in the goody bag? I think most runners would be happy with a bottle of water, and a cereal bar or banana. Sorry, Cardiff 10K, I've always loved this course but if the cost isn't lower next year I'll probably give it a miss. Date of review: September 7, 2008
In short: A really good event In full: And it seems so much better year on year.I know some people prefer the big start in Westgate Street and big stadium finish but for me and many others the slightly smaller field and overall friendliness of the whole set up really makes a change. A well organised,well marshalled event. I'm just grateful that Miss Jenkins didn't sing,I know she is well liked by many,and she will be a great ambassador for KRUF,but she just cannot sing. Sorry!!

In short: great race In full: great race,fast course, well organised abit expensive to enter but road closures are costly in town. i hope most of the money goes to the charity anyway and wasn't spent on the pile of glossy leaflets which were in the goodie bag. would of liked to have a bannana or cereal bar in the goodie bag.maybe next year well done to all the organisers/marshalls another great event!!
In short: Nice flat-fast course. In full: Great P.B.potential as very flat, well organised, only one water station though it was enough as weather quite cloudy a little difficult to pass on narrow track between 7-8 km's. Overall very good. Date of review: September 7, 2008
