In short: Lovely race In full: Bit disappointed M20 closed so was late getting to race. Couldn't find the start as no markings, asked some spectators so think I started at the right place but can't feel I can count my time as not sure if I started at the right place. Other than that a really good race, I found marshalls encouraging and I will be joining in next year. Date of review: March 10, 2008
In short: I am on "Cloud nine" as I beat my previous PB by 6minutes and 3 seconds In full: Taking account of the fact that this was the first race at this venue for a number of years I didn't think the general organisation was too bad. I agree with most of the comments of previous contributors but I'm sure the organisers will take them into account for future years. Of one thing I am completely certain - this is the best chance I will ever get to do a PB at this distance and I will be back next year to do even better!
In short: Fast and flat - as long as the weather is good! In full: Nice friendly race with a simple out and back course. Well organised and great support from the marshalls. Good potential for a PB as long as the exposed route is not suffering from a buffering from the wind (and rain!). Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: Lydd half- We need more In full: More toilets ( only 2 non flushing ones for females ), more water stations ( only 3, too few for a half and no isotonic options ), more marshal support on the course, more pre race information including a map or directions and more signs to race.

In short: facilities poor for this amount of entry fee, mile marking possibly not correct In full: Hopefully a lot of the entry fee goes towards the mentioned charity because facilities were very poor for the runners.Friendly marshalls, a bit busy on the roads, course not very exciting.Weather spoiled perhaps a good ending of the run.
