In short: The wind made it hard going in the last mile. Lots of runners and sometimes congested but a really enjoyable run. Will do it again next year. 16 seconds off my best time but without the strong wind should be a personal best race! Date of review: December 4, 2006
In short: Did anyone mention the wind? In full: Well done Portsmouth for a great race, well organised, and a great track start and finish. Shame about the flooded paths and strong winds, but I'm glad I did it and will be back.
This seems to have been the best attended HRRL so far too - well done for that. Date of review: December 4, 2006
In short: Great facilities pre/post race, nice flat course and 1000+ runners. In full: If it wasn't for the crazy strength wind hitting me on the last mile I would have been very happy!...boy it made me work extremely hard to reach the finish line. Well organised race and looking one I will do next year again. Date of review: December 3, 2006
In short: No pb today! In full: Super race generally but the wind today was difficult, excess of 40/50 mph off the sea at times!! Great to start and finish on the track. Will definitely return next year. Thank you to all marshalls for support. Date of review: December 3, 2006
In short: Wet and windy - but a great race regardless! In full: I really enjoyed this run, even though the path was underwater for about half a mile near IBM (soggy trainers, ergh!) and I lost quite a bit of ground in the final mile due to the 40mph winds! I must admit I got a bit frustrated with it but I soon cheered up when I saw my time!! (Definite PB potential) Will be back next year without a doubt!! :) Date of review: December 3, 2006
