In short: Great PB potential - minus the wind! In full: Very well organised race - well done! Great parking facilities and a nice finish area. Could do with more toilets but apart from that it was very good. Flat course, with a couple of small inclines (reading other reviews people have mentioned hills - not sure if I was doing the same race because didn't seem to run any hills, just a couple of small inclines)! Very windy course but pb potential in the right conditions. Date of review: March 22, 2009
In short: Well organised and friendly. Far too much traffic on 60mph roads for my likeing. Good value and quality t shirt, but not to be repeated due to too much traffic on the roads. Date of review: March 22, 2009
In short: I was spectating my better half, who's rated it here. PA system at the finish, a car with a whooping great clock on it to lead the front. Friendly fun run for kids and adults during the event. In full: Lovely day, lovely turnout! Changing rooms for males and females, toilets at hand, distance markers, whooping great clock on a car for the front, clock at finish, pleasant atmosphere, tea and coffee, beer, cake and snacks at the club house by the finish. The traffic on the road leading up to the finish was okay - a few drivers let themselves down, but mainly very considerate. One thing - arrive at least 20 minutes early if you're driving, to avoid the rush of runners out of the gate who are making their way to the start. Date of review: March 22, 2009
In short: Not as flat as I thought, but no great problems In full: A big long drag up a slight incline between miles 9 and 11 finished me off after I'd gone off too fast. Just managed a PB but was exhausted.
Excellent organisation. loads of easy parking and a good vibe around the clubhouse, with ice cream, bacon sarnies and things to do for the kids. Will be back next year but will respect the course a bit more. Date of review: March 22, 2009
