In short: Third Time and so different when you have the weather! In full: Have struggled in the past with the wind but today it was glorious.
Great number of water stations, beautifully scenic (couldn't wish for better). Traffic was a problem and I am one who was thankful that the start was delayed as we left in plenty of time but then had close to an hour stuck in the traffic.
Feel sorry for the person who didn't find the toilets, but as usual they were there in abundance which was great as I didn't have time to que for them.
Only one downside to this event was the support. Maybe thats because I'm so far at the back everybodies fed up of clapping or giving encouraging words ;-)
FElt for the bikers, no marshelling must have made it very fustrating and a little dangerous. Maybe they could start a little earlier in the future.
All these things are minor though. Llanelli is my favourite run by far and one that I will hopefully be returning to for a good many years yet.
In short: excellent race!! thansk guys In full: great race, lovely weather,supportive marshalls, plenty of water stations, accurate distance and Chris on the mic was brill! what more can you ask for THANKS Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: A lovely race.... In full: On the down side,4 portaloos is not sufficient for the numbers of runners or spectators. No official baggage storage. That was a very long mile between 9 and 10.My son who finished in 1hr 20 mins was averaging 6 minute miles until then when it jumped to 7min 10.Mmm! Apart from that this was a very well organised race,well supported and marshalled and much better than the Bath Half (also on today). Good work,I'll be back next year!!! Apart from those two minor nigglesAll Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: Excellent course - one of my favourite halves In full: Really loved this race - first time I've done it - loved the fact you could break it down into four sections mentally. Scenery was good; organisation brilliant; PA man was excellent also - car park very well placed for race; and lots of portaloos - hooray! Marshals friendly and helpful. All in all, one of my favourites - thanks very much - will be back next year. Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: average race, good numbers, weather and scenery excellent In full: 4th time at this venue, good toilets - sitation and number available good, smooth race and good water stations. scenery excellent and weather the best ever had when ever I've raced here! biggest problem was the traffic and congestion for entering/exiting and parking at race. Left Newport at 9.20am and only just arrived in time for a quick loo break and power walk to the start line...needs to be addressed next year. Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: Flat, fast run on a nice spring day In full: A nice traffic free route along the South Wales coast, with good support, especially at the start and finish. I imagine it would be a bit of a 'mare if the weather was against you, but there were no such problems today.
The only drawback was a delayed start due to traffic problems. Apart from that it was great! Date of review: March 7, 2010
