In short: Organisation was totally shambolic!However the course was good,runners were friendly, it 's local and it's only £10, so I'd do it again.But please,get some decent organisers... Date of review: May 6, 2012
In short: Hmmmmmmm In full: Strange run. No contact or email from race organisers once entered through RW. Turned up early to get race number and figure out start location, only to be greeted by long slightly chaotic queue of other runners and on the day registers. At the start of race it was impossible to hear what was being said & what direction to run in, so it was a follow & hope for the best. That said from there in the marshals were very friendly and had an enjoyable run. The end was odd too as car park was part of the race route, so when trying to leave I was driving through people still trying to finish! 6/10, room for improvement. Date of review: May 6, 2012
In short: A little shambolic, but for a tenner I enjoyed it. In full: Some pros and some cons, but overall still fun.
I didn't have a watch so I still don't know my time as they didn't give any indications of the time. I am not too confident of it turning up on the internet. Some of the marshals were great, some we downright miserable.
Location is good.
This was my first organised race, and I would recommend it, if the poor organisation doesn't worry you too much. If you can take a relaxed attitude, it's fine. Date of review: May 6, 2012
In short: Bit of a shambles In full: Race itself wasn't too bad and I chalked up a PB. Organisation was a shambles, nobody knew where we were going, luckily I wasn't at the front. I had pre paid for the event & wasn't on their list I'm not sure anyone was. The course was really tight and getting past back markers on the last lap was very tricky. Also the 5k marker wasn't even close to being accurate. Could have been better with a bit mor care and attention . Wouldn't recommend it and won't bother next year! Date of review: May 5, 2012
In short: Not amazing but good enough. In full: This was just an average run really - not much actual running in the park which as a shame, but the course was fine and didn't feel too repetative. Organisation wasn't the best. I did a run orgaised by this company over a year ago and I remember commenting on the poor man giving out tshirts needing a table so he could organise them and not have a queue of tired runners a mile long waiting while he shiffled through boxes ... well, still no table and still lots of shuffling through boxes! However, I was able to park near to the park so that was a bonus! Date of review: May 5, 2012
In short: SENTIMENTAL ATTACHMENT TO THIS RACE In full: This was the first real race I ever did, it was ideal for a beginner and it it got me hooked. It doesn't boast anything special and if I remember rightly they'd under measured the distance, but it was friendly, good fun. a good atmosphere and a race I'll always remember as my introduction to running races. 6 years on I'm going to do it again as part of my training for the Edinburgh marathon.
