In full: Some of the choices in the number ratings seem quite similar. It's on the outskirts of Long Eaton, so I suppose you could eat a picnic there but someone might have nicked your car by the time you've finished (although they'll still be at the bus stop, because the bus to town runs once per hour on Sundays).
Seriously... this is a fast race which attracts elite runners. I've never been a beginner so I don't know if that bothers the 60 minute runners, I can't see why it would.
Everything about the organisation was very good, it's as if the organiser has run a lot of 10ks and knows what to do. Which he has/does.
Flat, fast runners at the front, lip gloss in the goody bag. What more could you ask for? Date of review: September 2, 2012

In short: My first 10K & really enjoyed it! In full: Start was a bit manic, but for my first 10K U really enjoyed it, despite the slight drizzle. As said before, the residents were and in force and a special mention for the Marshall's, who were excellent and full of encouragement, particularly the lady with the bell!
