In short: Bit too expensive, too many people for PB potential In full: I was really looking forward to this and weather aside it was a bit of a let down, we were held up in various places due to the amount of people. the marshals were a bit underwhelming with their cheering on, least the spectators were more vocal! Don't think I'd bother again, for the money there are better options. Date of review: November 1, 2013
In short: Flat, Windy, but £41 for a 10 mile - really? In full: A nice route taking in the main sights of Southsea and Portsmouth. Very flat and if there was no wind factor then a very fast time is achievable.
The entry fee of £41 for a 10 mile race is shocking. It's another Event ticked off the list but I won't be back. Whilst BUPA do a great job with the overall organisation of these events and whilst they continue to grow in numbers the price will only go up and up in future. Date of review: October 31, 2013
In short: Great race. Well organised. In full: This was my second year at this race and I've really enjoyed both of them. Very well organised and considering how many people took part, I didn't get stuck in crowds. Date of review: October 28, 2013
In short: Good but expensive In full: Fast course, excellent crowd support. The extremely windy conditions for the last two miles were terrible and helped to ruin my PB chance. As it is local to me I would do it again, but it is expensive. Date of review: October 27, 2013
In short: Well organised, busy, flat and windy route In full: Seems we got lucky with the weather as the rain predicted in the mid week forecast had passed. That being said the head wind on the last 2 miles does provide an additional challenge, otherwise fast route with plenty of, much appreciated, local support. Date of review: October 27, 2013
In short: horrible wind but great race! In full: What a fab day! Great course (makes Portsmouth look really nice ;-)), nice and flat, well organised, great goody bag too. Suffered with gale force winds along the 8-10 mile stretch but fast other than that. My only gripes were that it was very expensive (£42) for a 10 miler, and the baggage store wasn't signed very well! Other than that I loved it and will be back next year!
