In short: Well organised race In full: This was a very well organised race right from pre-race parking to marshalling during the race and friendly atmosphere after. The momento in the shape of mug is a nice touch.
A special thanks to the marshalls who kept the flow of runner going despite car traffic in places.
As for PB? I cut 8 minutes off my prevous of 74.
Where's next year's entry form? Date of review: November 18, 2009
In short: Solid PB-able Race In full: Some minor inclines, but still very PB-able course; Good value for money, especially with nice navy blue mug! Would do again if I wanted another crack at my 10M PB Date of review: November 16, 2009
In short: Good Flat PB course In full: Good marshalling, great weather and a PB course. The PB course meant what you gained in speed, you had to compromise on scenery so the route wasn't very inspiring, especially the second lap of the dual carriageway. But for the speed freaks, this is definitely the race to run. Date of review: November 16, 2009
In short: Speedy 2-lapper around Preston villages In full: Enjoyed this. Very flat with only a couple of gentle inclines so a real PB course although it can be a little tricky to overtake on the pavement by the dual carriageway.
The runners seemed to be of a very good standard overall and there were some tremendous times recorded. The marshalls had their work cut out but they did well and were cheerful and supportive generally.
The memento was a mug which is nice enough but it was a shame that it didn`t say the name of the race on it.
A really good race for runners chasing a time as the end of the year approaches. Date of review: November 16, 2009
In short: Flat ,fast , friendly,fab, In full: Left watch at home (by mistake!), started off too slowly then caught a group running at my pace but overdid it & suffered the last 2 miles. One of the worst races I've done, personally, but a great atmosphere with a friendly bunch of northerners!. The course is flat with PB potential, I missed out on mine by 9 seconds. Will be back at Guys 10 in three weeks with my watch on, PB watch out! Date of review: November 17, 2008
In short: The course is set up for fast times In full: Any inclines/declines are gradual and the course is set up for fast times. The marshalls are all friendly and the event ran very well. The mug at the end was a nice touch. Date of review: November 17, 2008
In short: Excellent race - fast and very friendly In full: Really excellent 10 mile race - flat, well organised and friendly and supportive marshalls. Perfect running conditions made it a really enjoyable morning and made even better by taking 3 and half minutes off my pb. Date of review: November 16, 2008
