In short: A really good race for the time of year In full: The gentle inclines, slight breeze, and bright sunshine made this a pleasant February run. Mile markers were accurately placed and clearly visible which was a big help. The chip timing seemed to go very smoothly resulting in no queues at the finish.
A warm welcome at the end of the race from the friendly, helpful marshalls weilding bananas and beanie hats was a welcome change.
Probably need more portable toilets for future races - there were queues everywhere and some people were wandering up to the rail station to use the facilities, but otherwise a faultless operation. Well done to the organisers. Date of review: February 9, 2009

In short: Good time and flat course. With just 900 runners then hassle free albeit some stretches of running on your own athrough frozen fields. Would certrainly do it again and recommend. Date of review: February 9, 2009
