In short: A couple of long hills, a fantastic pud, cheery marshalls In full: Was feeling a bit intimidated-my 1st non-Cancer Research/charity race and hadn't got all of the fancy gear a lot of the others had but very welcoming marshalls and runners, car parking in the industrial estate was very nearby and well organised. Will be doing it again next year, hopefully without the driving rain and sleet!! Hope my Mum likes the Christmas pud. Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Great organisation as always. In full: A big thank you to the marshalls and the police for doing a great job in terrable weather conditions. The new course is much harder than the old one that hill towards the end took the wind out of my sails but i will be back next year. Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Hills, Wind, Rain, Cold - BUT Fantastic! In full: Horrendous weather with most people wondering what on earth they were doing lining up at the start! But then once off it all became clear...
A lot of hils to present a challenge but the ups were well balanced with the downs...
Big cheer for the marshalls and the police - standing and being cheery in that weather they deserve a medal! and the pudding was superb!! (U can't stnad christmas pudding - but even I was impressed!) Will make a great stocking filler for the inlaws! so bargain!!! Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Brilliant with possibly the best marshalls ever In full: Fantastic run- weather challenging but course good mix of urban and country and hills well spaced out. Top marks must go to the marshalls and police who did fantastic job and were very encouraging and to the supporters who cheered us on in bracing conditions. Pudding looks superb and will take pride of place at Christmas dinner table Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Excellent support from marshalls in appalling weather! In full: Bit of a queue for numbers for those of us who applied online. Marshalls once again were excellent. New course is much better. Was there a start line...? Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Hilly and wet, but great marshalls and fab pud at the end. In full: Missed last years 10k so came back hoping to fulfill a p.b. Not so, it was cold, rainy but another triumph for the club who organise this race. Fab Marshalls who were encouraging particularly up the hill, good encouragement from others waiting for friends to finish and also those stood in doorways. Yes it is more hilly then the previous course but if it wasn't raining I reckon the view would be fantastic. I look forward to next year. Many Thanks Date of review: November 18, 2007
In short: Enjoyed the new course, even in the rain! In full: Usual well organised race by Heanor RC. Plenty of very wet marshalls, plenty of parking, I much prefer the new course which has less traffic and is pleasantly undulating with nothing too steep or long and a nice downhill finish, thanks to all concerned.
