In short: Little bit disappointed with the drink stations as there should have been 3 andd there was only 2 and then they used cups and with the wind the water simply blew away. All other areas were well done. Date of review: March 9, 2009
In short: A bit windy In full: The wind was a pain on the run back but still managed a reasonable time. The water issue was unfortunate, especially at the finish where a bottle would have been appreciated. I also appeared to 'miss' the mileage markers at 7 and 8 miles.
One other point was the fact that hastings is a week later and it would perhaps make sense to organise this race at a different time. Date of review: March 9, 2009
In short: Worth doing once if only for the PB potential In full: Difficult to know where to start with this one, if you,ve never organised a race before think carefully before you have a go at those that do. However the water problem was a disgrace and the marshalls looked like they were there under sufferance. For all that if the wind hadnt blown i would probably have had a new pb. The out and back route was boring, perhaps a circular route would be more interesting. Date of review: March 8, 2009
In short: Great event let down only by the famous Marsh winds! In full: I enjoyed the event. To runners whinging about water I would recommend if they are that dependent on getting fluids down their neck they carry their own. Date of review: March 8, 2009
In short: Sorry Nice Work, I have to agree with SOME of the things already said. In full: The water stations!! 'Enough Said' The Goody Bag, Somewhat Poor for the entry fee. But as for some comments about the Marshalls, The only comment I have is I feel the marshal at the 12+ roundabout SHOULD HAVE POINTED THE WAY BUT DIDNT I had to follow other runners. But for the other marshalls, although not very vocal they did there job and I thank them for that. Perhaps in future years this event needs to have people who know what it is like to NOT have enough water and a better finish goody bag content would be great. So NICE WORK keep going because we ALL NEED people who are willing to organise events. And as for some of the people who have commented here need to try organising one themselves before they make harsh comments, I have assisted in running events and organised cycling events and it is NOT as easy as they might think...
