In short: Great Atmosphere and race made tough with wheather and hills In full: Wow!! Another brilliant turn out for the Potters Arf. It gets better every year and I'm sure nobody would do as well without the great support. Hoses, ice pops, orange's, buckets of water, music and constant clapping. I couldn't ask for more.
Personally I'd like to say a few things! 1) Thanks for the person who owns the newsagents half way up the massive hill on mile 3 with the sign 8 carling for a fiver. Nice tease in the boiling hot weather running up a vertical hill!
2) Secondly, I's like to thank to two women dressed as tiger's raising money for charity. They made great scenery.
Overall though great race to do. The last hill on 12 miles was an unexpected killer.
There was also freebies on lucozade bars and gels and at the end a medal, t-shirt and commemarative place. BONUS!!!
In short: What can I say but FANTASTIC! In full: Once again despite the sweltering conditions this was an absolutely fantastic race, the problems of last years t-shirts have been sorted and this is now on it's way to being one of the best in the country.
And despite the hot weather and the killer hill at the 12 mile point I somehow managed to squeeze out a PB… :o)
In short: Congratualtions is you did not stop & walk!!!!!!!!! In full: I was warned about the hills, and it felt as though it was up hill all the way. The weather di not help. As a previous comment HOT, HILLY & HARD. Congetulations to all those who took up the challenge. Date of review: June 10, 2008
In short: In a word, superb! In full: I can't rate this race highly enough. Was it tough? Oh yes! Was it good running conditions? Certainly not, unless you train in Africa. Are you going to get a PB on this course? Only if you're superhuman! But the organisation and the support were second to none, fantastic race, great prizes and the people spectating were probably the best I've experienced. I ran my slowest half by a long way but I still really enjoyed it! I'd like to personally thank the young lad who handed me an ice pop at 10 miles (that got me through the last 5k!!) and all the people out with their hoses, life savers!! Back next year? Oh yes! I'll just remember the sun cream, next time!! :o) Date of review: June 10, 2008
