In short: Good challenging course, well marshalled. In full: Not one for PBs perhaps, but a good challenging course (much better than 2 years previously). Finish in Verulamium Park always good. Marshalls were excellent around the course and good to see plenty of water stations.
The only downside was the organisation at the finish. Ice lollies ran out very early and there was no food / energy drink available as part of a gooie bag otherwise (after this challenging course in hot weather just a banana would have been welcome). Date of review: June 9, 2008
In short: Well done to the Marshalls. In full: I had a good race - finished in around 1.35 -no real problems for me at the finish but hen I waited around for about 1 hour relaxing - only to end up spending 1 hour to get out or the Car Park - the organisers should not let 2 your lads try to control it - it was unfair on them with a lot of people very stressed . Marshals were really friendly and were excellent cheerers. Date of review: June 9, 2008
In short: Scenic, hilly, hot and friendly! In full: Pros: marshalling v good; lots of car parking; lots of water stations; started on time; good start pens; nice to have the running half, walking half and children's events on same day for a family day out
Cons: no water available at finish; signs to get to car parks non-existent; ran out of x-large t-shirts pretty early on
Overall: fantastic family day out and well organised. Give the organisers a break about the time to exit the car park, I'd rather queue to exit than drive round the streets looking for somewhere to park, like some events I've been to! Date of review: June 9, 2008
In short: Great event though the heat and undulations rule out a fast time. Great encouragement around the course and well organized. Ice-creams ran out early so none for those who needed them most boo-hoo!n Date of review: June 9, 2008
