In short: The weather was good In full: The course was nice good scenery and mostly only very few traffic however I came across some - points like the car park quite a walk to the start (ok thru a nice park) and the 1k on a small footpath with grass right and left (a bit like a cross county race) but anyway it was enjoyable race in a nice scenry. Good points also the wide spectrum of different runners! Date of review: May 20, 2007
In short: very well organised and slightly undulating is a fiar description In full: no real hills to speak of but a few inclines along the way. Lots of marshalls - nearly every junction has a marshall - almost impossible to get lost. run on quiet roads (not closed). nice key fob momento this year water at 5Km and at finish Date of review: May 20, 2007
In short: A nice way to spend a sunday in May In full: A good course, very scenic, underlating yes, but still enjoyable. Marshalls were very encouraging. It's good to have another local race, the start was a bit problematic, just having to run round the curve to start but aside from that it was a very good thought out course.
I will be back next year. Date of review: May 19, 2006
In short: Hilly course, well marshalled In full: A first time for me on this one (think it was ladies only 'til last year). A very nice course - with an interesting water feature about 3/4 way round! Deinitely do this one next year. Date of review: May 16, 2006
In short: Undulating's the word In full: Nice to have another local race - especially one that turned out to be quite enjoyable. Yes it was a bit hilly, and the water hazard was a suprise, but overall a nicely organized and friendly race. See you there next year. Date of review: May 16, 2006
In short: Rural Country Lanes. In full: Challenging course. Agree with the other review. Tough, uphill start. The water hazard was bad news for some. I also didnt realise the finishing line was coming when it did. I missed the opportunity to sprint the last 200 metres. Date of review: May 14, 2006
In short: A fine Sunday morning run. In full: Excellent parking, good loos in leisure centre, after race grub in race hut at reasonable prices, excellent cup of tea. Long walk to start, useful wee bushes opposite start, difficult angled start though, bit messy, quite pretty, unofficial water hazards, not a fast course. Couldn't quite make out exactly which bit was finishing line. Date of review: May 14, 2006
