In short: That was a cold wind & slippery off road In full: Good day, pretty good course apart from the track but there is no alternative and only about 1.5 mls. Could be dangerous if really wet I think. With plastic cups I feel one more drink station would be helpful in mid race. Very well marshalled and well signed too. Good job!

In short: Well done on another super race! In full: A great race again - congratulations Sleaford Striders! The mile markers were spot on this year, and the muddy section wasn't too bad. The killer hill at the end is still a killer, but the cup of tea and lovely goodie bag made up for it. The marshals and organisation was superb and thanks for the jelly babies between mile 9 and 10 - much needed! Well done and see you again next year! Date of review: February 19, 2012

In short: superb In full: Despite being just down the road this is the first time I've done Sleaford. I really enjoyed this. Miles 3 and 4 were off road, and tougher (my Garmin recorded 30+ secs slower than my road pace) and the last half mile across the playing field seemed to last a very long time!
Bit cold and blustery in places, but marshalls and organisers incredibly friendly and smiley, and definitely one to put in the diary for next year.
