In short: So nearly ... Potential for Future! In full: So nearly a great race. Up side, text soon after finish to tell me my time. Great support Staff. Well signposted. Down side, too much hanging around at the start. The Loop back on yourself before entering Elvaston. A bigger finish would have been nice!
In short: Very enjoyable for a first time at this distance In full: So yes there was a bit of a hold up at the start, and i was one of those who needed the loo just before the gun.... But all in all I really enjoyed this race, seemed very well organised - even if i do not have alot to compare it to. The water stations were all well stocked when I passed them and the marshals were all great cheering me on.
I am now trying to get the time off work to do the Scottish one and would like to get all four under my belt and do the Welsh and Irish next year!! Date of review: March 16, 2010
In short: I enjoyed the kilomathon experience and thought that it was extremely well organised.Disappointed that my size small t-shirt is big enough for me plus a close friend!Pity -it's a really nice one too. Date of review: March 16, 2010
In short: Good In full: Like many others, i was horrified by people peeing up walls at the beginning. I would probably do this again as I live locally. It was the furthest I've ever run and I thought the organisation was good and the support was good considering how cold and windy it was! Excellent medal, goody bag and t-shirt! Being local, I know there could be a more scenic way to the finish line..... please! It would have motivated me a bit more rather than being abused by the local ASBO crew with their fags and cans of special brew ;-) Date of review: March 16, 2010
In short: brilliant race, well organised, friendly and most of all flat!!!!!! In full: An excellent experience, brilliantly organised, fantastic marshalls, great spectator support and the shuttle buses and parking went like clockwork. Extraordinary a real memory maker. the goody bag was just as good too. Agree about the pens though too long in a couped up area to keep warm! had it been colder weather or wet it would have made things very unpleasent and hard to warm up when running. But i lOVED it and it was awesome bein g part of something so innovative. Well done to the organisers Date of review: March 16, 2010
In short: Poor start but great too finish In full: Ushered up to start way too early and got very cold waiting for the gun. I liked the way the pins were moved forward but it was way too soon. Not bad for first Kilomathon though. Great training distance for full marathon Date of review: March 15, 2010
