In short: Great race, great course, but £2 for results ??? In full: this is a brilliant race,ideal for first timers or those after a pb, but Help the Aged have turned it into a money making scheme - £10 entry, £1.42 booking, and if you want to know how you got on then its another £2 - disgraceful.
In short: Attitude of Help the Aged has left a bitter after taste In full: What's put me off is the way that Help the Aged are refusing to release the race results unless you pay £2. They wont put them on a website. Race entry was a whopping £11. It's a bad example of a greedy charity trying to muscle in on running events. I'm tempted to find another charity to support!

In short: Generally a fast race that meets the needs of beginner through to club runners In full: Disappointed about results process - having pulled a group of new corporate runners together, still no idea how we did. Paying for results is disappointing, particularly as we have been fund raising within the Company Date of review: December 2, 2004
In short: Great atmosphere at start but still don't know my finish time! In full: Why did we have to pay after the event for race results & Wait so long? A real downer at the end of an otherwise enjoyable event. Date of review: December 2, 2004
In short: Charging for the results leaves a sour taste In full: The organisation was very good, and seemed to be able to cope with the increased entry. However the decision to charge a further £2 for the results was a big mistake. Help the Aged have done their cause no favours with this petty action. Date of review: November 30, 2004
