In short: Shame there were no distance markers - I ended the race feeling I could have gone faster... Water would also have been most welcome. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed being soaked through. Importantly I got a new PB and I wasn't last! In full: As others have said the route had to change and was then 6.5 miles rather than 10k, so a little bit longer. This was only my second 10k and I'm still learning how to pace myself so it was a shame there were no markers, as I ended the race feeling I could have gone faster... Water would also have been most welcome. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed being soaked through, and importantly I got a new PB and I wasn't last! Date of review: December 3, 2007
In short: The combination of changed route last minute (due to a fallen tree), no distance markers or any water at any stage during the race was a huge disappointment. Having forgot my own water bottle, I was struggling half way round due to thirstt In full: resulting in some walking at points. Please get distance markers and water and I will be back. Overall, nice run and well organised apart from these big points. Date of review: December 2, 2007
In short: Exellent race, very fast course, brilliant T-shirt In full: Brilliant course, very scenic, great atmosphere throughout, would defo do again and loved the T-Shirt Date of review: August 18, 2005
In short: the t-shirt claims its the north wests fastest 10k - I can't disagree with that !! In full: Orgainised by my one of my local clubs, extremely flat and fast with one slight hill, water stations, changing etc... Smashed my pb and will be back in december at the pudding run ( same course ) to try again.
The race t-shirts are cool - featuring running sheep ??
Well done Hoad Hill Harriers for organising a great race. Date of review: August 18, 2005
In short: very hard but you've got to expect it really if you want the best views!! Beautiful scenery, friendly competitors, and the big question is always: what will the T-shirt be like this year??? Date of review: August 24, 2004
