In short: The Dogs Danglies!!!!!! In full: My first 10K race ever! Every other race has to live up to Woodhall Spa! Plenty of support around the track and the finish support was superb. Thank you to all the supporters! Date of review: June 3, 2007
In short: Just gets better! In full: Apart from the weather this event was as good as if not better than last year. Def be back in 12 months to do it again. Whats the possibility of chip timing along with a less congested finish? The start this year was much improved. Well done to all organisers and volunteers! Date of review: June 3, 2007
In short: Fantastic organisation- nice, flat scenery- not great for hayfever sufferers! In full: Far too hot for a pb! Excellent organisation all-round, from start to finish. Water and sponges not expected until 5k, but someone had seen sense and they were at about 2.5k instead and also around 7k- worked brilliantly with the cadets helping to distribute. Marshalls provided encouragement from their points but as this route takes you out into the 'sticks', there's very little else until the last 500m or so. If you are a hayfever sufferer, make sure you take your tablets! Good tannoy system announcing runner numbers coming over the line. Nice commemorative medal handed out by the local Brownies and water available just afterwards. Brilliant atmosphere all-round, helped by the flat countryside scenery, finish point and weather. Certainly one to do next year! Date of review: June 3, 2007
In short: Great event In full: This event just gets better and better no wonder there's more runners each year 800+ last year and 1000+ possibly this year, very well organised event, i think its only a matter of time before chip timing is used here because of the amount of runners each year, the only down side was the amount of spectators that were stood amongst the runners at the start, i think they may have been confused at what was going on so maybe next year a couple of loud speakers about half way down and near the rear so those in these areas can hear whats happening at the front/start, only a minor detail nothing major and as i said last year,l if it was perfect this year it couldnt be improved next year.
i'll be back next year as this is one of my must do races Date of review: June 3, 2007
