In short: Good race - well marshalled in the main - despite the rain, it was very enjoyable! In full: Bit chaotic at the start, with cars still coming through whilst everyone was gathering. Marshalling during the race was great - stopping traffic at road junctions etc. -although not as enthusiastic as at other races, but this was likely due to the rain (big thanks for giving up your time though and for not minding getting wet!!). Finish area was also a little frantic, and not hugely obvious. Was it me or did the lead vehicle, which was parked up, no longer have the clock ticking? All in all, an enjoyable race, with excellent PB potential. Thanks to all everyone involved in the organisation of the race. Date of review: May 7, 2007
In short: Did anyone else think it was less than 10k? In full: First of all.....a good race, with a good atmosphere. Never done it before and I belive that there is usually a fete of some sort?....If so then I imagine that this is a really good event.
Second....if you're not quick then don't line up at the front!! :-)
I was aiming for 41 mins, stopped 3 times for 1 minute each and ended up doing 42:30 so something doesn't add up for me. I don't think it's 10k, more like 6 miles.
So, overall a good race with good support but I won't be adding it to my 10k times. It wouldn't stop me doing it again though.
In short: Definitely a quick course though not flat, one noticeable uphill at 4K ish. Something definitely needs doing about the turn in about 300m before the finish. Bad enough for the leaders and got worse later. Toilets were questionable. Date of review: May 1, 2006
