In short: Enjoyed the run - thanks everyone In full: This was the first time I had done this event - I don't do many road races but this was in our club Grand Prix so it had to be done. I was put off by it being advertised as flat, but there were a few inclines so it was not too bad. It was a shame about all the queues - for chips, loos and then, at the end, for T shirts and drinks. The weather was kind today - but it would have been a bit miserable in the rain. Date of review: March 14, 2010
In short: Great for 1st 10K In full: My 1st 10K, nice and flat - and fast! Did it in just under 46mins(I think! still waiting for chip time) - dissapointed I wasn't given chip time after the race and no-one seemed know how or when it would be available. Found out later it will be published on ukresults.net later.
Nice medal and T-shirt and great to see so much local support. Date of review: March 14, 2010
In short: Fast, flat course, well supported by the local village with lots of support In full: Generally well organised, except for a slight hiccup at the end with the queue for the t-shirt/medal. Love the support from the locals, felt like ereryone in Fradley had turned out to support the runners. Would definitely run it again. Date of review: March 14, 2010
In short: Chip Timing for a 10K?! Great job done. In full: Loved the chip timing - don't think I've ever come across that for a 10K before. Overall a good race and before someone complains about the queue to get out of the carpark - a tip - take a book and read it for 10 minutes before you leave. I drove straight out!
Nice medal (didn't really need a t-shirt as well in my opinion) but would have been nice to have been 'presented' with one rather than collecting it off a table.
Hope to be back next year. Date of review: March 14, 2010
In short: Enjoyable flat fast course. In full: Fast flat course. The wind in the open parts slowed me down a bit. Just missed out on 50 mins. Good local race. Strongly recommend it. Date of review: March 14, 2010
In short: Fast and windy! In full: Totally agree with Damien - A good race - 2 laps of rural lanes and roads and well organised generally - apart from the end! It's unfair to criticise too much and it was an opportunity to get your breath back (!) but it took ages to get through the finishing funnels to get your medal.
Overall though I enjoyed the race and it is generally flat and so I ran the fastest I ever have! Not all bad then! Date of review: March 14, 2010
In short: I would have given 5 for organisation because it is generally well done with lots of nice things BUT at the end you could barely cross the finish line because the lack of space and the lack of people giving out the medallions and collecting the timin Date of review: March 14, 2010
