In short: good course and smashed my PB In full: Disappointed in fact that paperwork stated we would get print out of our time-that did not happen and still waiting for official results to be posted :( .. the finger chip made my finger numb.. The course was flat, good surface and fast.. smashed my PB by around 5 mins despite the very strong headwind so well chuffed.. I would do it again possibly... just waiting to see if they come through with results as bit of an unorganised feel at finish and left wondering if chip registered.
In short: Good 5k course but no chip In full: Did the 5k since fancied a shorter distance this time. Generally good course, but narrow start and the tight turn at half way slowed things down a little.
Great weather given the last few weeks, although fresh head wind on the way back.
Good organisation at start and end, although goody bag was just a drink. Maybe there's more for the 10k runners - I'll find out in April since booked on this.
Biggest gripe, though, was no chip for the 5k for reasons entirely unclear. Maybe they thought of it as a fun race, but some just want to do 5k every now and then and besides everyone wants to know their actual time, whether doing it faster or as a first race. Nothing in the event details to indicate this so a bit of a let down on the day.
My gps watch said 4.9k. Date of review: February 2, 2013
