In short: Great race, despite the conditions In full: Travelled 2 hours to do this race, and glad I did! Good organisation, great marshalls, and nice to hear your name called out after each lap. Lovely cakes at the end too. Definitely do it again. Date of review: November 9, 2009
In short: Good race In full: Not looking forward to 4 laps or the pouring rain, but in the end both where ok - and the cakes and Bacon butty ruined the calories may have burned off Date of review: November 9, 2009
In short: Nasty weather at the start, no mile markers but a great afternoon! In full: As a first timer to Bexhill wasn't sure how this one would pan out but on balance it was a great afternoon despite the awful weather at the start.
The toilets for changing were a bit iffy as it was raining really heavily and everything was drenched. I sacked it and ended up changing at the De La Warr Pavilion which was just along the prom.
The stewards were really friendly and encouraging, especially the guy near the cone at the far end of the prom and the guy on the PA name checking each of us as we finished our laps. The course wasn't as dull as I thought it might be despite going round 4 times. I initially missed the mile markers but shaved 3.5 mins off my PB so maybe I don't need them. Nearly missed the finish and almost started another lap at the end, some more signs there might have been handy. Great cakes and really nice atmosphere at the finish.
Respect to Bexhill Runners for putting on a friendly and well run event for a great cause.
In short: Nice race dispite the weather In full: I did the winter ballbuster in Box Hill the day before this race so was still tired. Great organiasation and friendly course marshals made up for the bad weather. Great medal and T-shirt. There were cakes to but I couldn't have them as I am vegan. Normally I don't like lap races but this one was OK. Date of review: November 9, 2009
In short: A fast half on closed roads . In full: Really enjoyed this race even though was a bit damp and windy. Well organised, good support, excellent t- shirt and medal, chip timing, top cakes! Raising funds for a very worthy cause - respect to Bexhill Runners.
In short: Flat, fast, well organised, great medal and cake! In full: Great race. Weather was (pretty) kind to us in the end (though did feel sorry for the kids!)
Well organised with great encouragement from the marshalls and the few hardy supporters around the start/finish and around the course. Nice touch to have your name overall and lap time announced after each lap.
Initially missed the mile markers, but ended up with a PB in 1:28 so maybe I'm better without them!
Great quality medal and a huge selection of cakes at the end. I'll be back in 2010. Date of review: November 9, 2009
In short: Good PB 4 lap course with good cake, medal & T-shirt! In full: Windy as hell last year, rain this year.. to be honest was perfect once it stopped lashing down (for the kids!), knocked nearly 9 mins off my pb and got under 90 mins so i'm loving it! \o/
See you next year, will try and do all four.
PS was better without the mile markers >) Date of review: November 8, 2009
