In short: Excellent value, PB, but quite dull. In full: The idea of running two laps of the f1 circuit filled me with excitement, and when I found out how cheap entry was (under £10 I believe) I was very quick to sign up.
The fact that the course takes you around the circuit actually made for a very boring atmosphere. No spectators along the way, only at the 5k/finish point. Despite that, there is potential for a PB on this course as long as the wind stays away. It didn't in 2014 but other than that there is no reason why this can't be a fast course.
There is no medal which I wasn't too bothered about, but I can't complain about a chip-timed race for under a tenner at an iconic location (for some). Would definitely come back. Date of review: May 11, 2014
In short: Great, fast, no medal. In full: As my summary says a great race, well organised, unique location and traffic free obviously. Pretty flat so pb is always on, just a little open in places so damn windy.
Only negative was no medal, I know it doesn't bother some people but if it's the first time you have raced at the location then it's nice to have a medal, got a bag but that'll just end up thrown at the back of the cupboard - this seemed to be the opinion of most of the people I spoke to on the night.
I'll be back, super local and great race just provide a medal next year please. Date of review: May 11, 2014
In short: Fast, well organised, and all abilities event. In full: Very well organised event, great to meander along the F1 racing line strangely thinking about your racing line on every corner. Great PB potential fast but challenging. Date of review: May 10, 2014
In short: Well organised, quick course and lots more spectators than previous years to add to the atmosphere. In full: A must do for any F1 fans and a great race for beginners who want to do a traffic free 10k. Free parking near the start/finish and chip timing make this excellent value. A good prize list as well. Nice to have a boot bag as a memento, something practical rather than another medal! Date of review: May 9, 2014
In short: Very Enjoyable! In full: I love Formula One, so for me this was brilliant. Loads of marshalls, well organized, tons of toilets and yummy cakes to buy at the start and finish! Not many supporters around the race track whilst running but understandable as it would be a long walk there and back as it's a loop circuit. Didn't get a PB as I found it hard work as it was a very windy night but my husband knocked over 2 mins off his (I am obviously not as tough as him)but great opportunity to definitely. Would highly recommend! Date of review: May 8, 2014
