In short: An annual must-do race for me. In full: Picturesque village, plenty of parking, flat course, lots of support, and good food / visitor options afterwards. Agree with previous review re bottlenecks around the course - starting pens would be a good idea. A great day out for runners and supporters. Date of review: May 19, 2013
In short: Very good - some room for improvement In full: Very enjoyable race. Pre & post race organisation was excellent.
The course is quite narrow and twisty and there were several bottlenecks around the course.
Despite running a fairly slow time I was overtaking people all the way to the finish.
There were several people at the front who were walking the whole route and causing a traffic jam.
Maybe next year ask people to predict their finish time and stand by the appropriate time posts at the start i.e. seed the runners. This might reduce the bottlenecks next year. Date of review: May 19, 2013

In short: Brilliant event around the streets of Port Sunlight In full: Very well organized event, one of the best I have been to. The course is 2 laps of a 5k course held within the village. The route was quite convoluted, which made it great for spectators. The course was flat and generally fast with only one really sharp hairpin. Well worth doing and in the calendar for next year already. Date of review: May 22, 2012
In short: Gorgeous Lord Leverhulme architechture, plenty of parking all around plus excellent rail links. The locals were very welcoming, the organization was impeccable and the spectators seemed to be having just as much fun as the runners! Date of review: May 18, 2012
