In short: I don't appear in the results & nobody has answered my email In full: I loved the race but I mailed when the provisional results came out to say that I did not have a result but have heard nothing from the organisers in reply.
I still do not feature in the full results.
I am very disappointed. Perhaps it was a dud chip. Scary for FLM!!
In short: Great supportive marshalls. In full: Bigg thank you to the lovely marshalls. Need more toilets. The goodie bags need to have the same items in all of them. Where was my Kit Kat and banana? It was my friends first half and he was disappointed in not getting a medal. Please bring back the medals. Have too many tshirts anyway. Date of review: February 26, 2009
In short: Race spolit by faulty chip timing device In full: Having taken a wopping 12 and half minutes off my PB was dissappointed to be among the 40 runners or so with no chip time. I can only conclude that the device I was given was faulty, having positioned it exactly according to the diagram given. Fortunately I activated my stop watch when positioned on the mats so have an accurate time. Bizarley my 3 friends also had no mention of a chip time in the official race results.
Aside from the problem with chip timing ,I thorughly enjoyed the combination of seaside, prommenade and town route with a few hills and inclines thrown in for good measure. The support from the public was excellent.
Have to echo the sentiments of runners though, who have expressed their dissatisfaction over not receiving a medal. Date of review: February 26, 2009
In short: Nice race, excellent organisation, rubbish goodies bag In full: Excellent race, I was surprised by the two hills at the end but nothing major. I know this is not the reason for running but the goodies bags or at least medal are still a prized thing to me. For the relatively high cost the goodies bag and t-shirt were not good value. Organisation was excellent, thank to all the marshals as there were heaps Date of review: February 26, 2009
In short: Well organised race with PB potential In full: A well organised race with plenty of marshals on the course who were encouraging. It was perfect weather for running the nearly flat course except the hill at mile 9. A good t-shirt and goody bag at the finish. Date of review: February 26, 2009
