In short: Excellent organisation and nice flat course. Will run again. In full: Very well organised event. Easy to get to and depart afterwards. Being an airfield there was no shortage of parking space. I quite liked the 2-lap course, even if it was a bit exposed in places. Despite the wind there was definite PB potential, and the start was very well organised. Was it just me, or were the 2km and 3km markers not right?? Date of review: March 5, 2006
In short: Best venue, organisation, parking, toilets, course I've completed in 4 years! SUPERB ++ In full: Absolutely brilliant from start to finish!! Easy to get to with ample parking on the airstrip frequented by 'The Stig' and the Top Gear crew.The track was a 2 lap course using a superbly smooth and flat perimeter road. The setting was right in the middle of some beautiful scenery and never have I run with deer frollicking in the nearbye woodland!! I got to the event with plenty of time to use the toilets/settle myself in but found that the facilities were ample and there was no need to queue for hours like at some recent events. I thouroughly enjoyed the race (crossing the line in 3rd -36.04) but was just a tad disappointed to find I'd been beaten into 4th bya faster runner on the timing chip!! Still, one of the best races I've run, by the best oragnised team!! Thanks guys - I'll be pencilling you in next year as my 'must do' race. Oh and the goodie bag was exceptional!! Take note rival organisers, this is how it should be done. Date of review: March 5, 2006
In short: Good race. Splendid location. makes a change from suburban roads. In full: Got to cross the hallowed Top Gear finish line, twice! Very different race, but I thought it was great, and those elite boys don't half go off at the bang.
And FINALLY, a start tone I could hear (being a bit mutton). Date of review: March 5, 2006
In short: Nice flat route, well organised. In full: Shame about the strong winds but still ran a PB. Good organisation and good parking. Didn't like plastic water cups and the suggested arrival time was too early on such a cold day. Date of review: March 5, 2006
In short: Good fun despite being laps. Nice and flat but the wind was a bit of a hindrance! Still being an irfield I guess you have to expect that! Turned up at 9.10 and still ended up waiting around for the start. Other than that great organisation. Thanks! Date of review: March 5, 2006
In short: Fantastic organisation, lovely race, very good PB potential, great medal. In full: After all my worries about two lap being boring it was infact rather nice to know what was coming up second time round. Could have done with out the wind, but i suppose that was the only thing to contend with as the course was flat as a pancake.
Brilliant organisation, as expected!
Nice touch the engraving, and thoroughly looking forward to next year.
In short: My first race and an enjoyable smooth morning with excellent information before and during the race. Only comment was the recommendation of arriving between 8.00 and 9.00 led to quite a bit of hanging around before we got going. Date of review: March 5, 2006
