In short: One of the best organised/value/pb potentail races around In full: The race continues, unsurprisingly, to grow each year and is coping well year after year. Lliswerry runners, marshalls, volunteers some of the happiest and smiliest around. Almost pancake flat route,, great benchmark for speed training, marathon build up stage checking. Scenic, not stunning, rural so nt too many supporters, appropriate water stop, water and a cracking t-shirt at the end i.e not desecrated by sponsor logos and fit for purpose when wearing again. Well done to all associated with the race. Date of review: January 28, 2013
In short: Excellent for pacing In full: Excellent race for pacing as it is so flat. Managed to pootle round in 7.40 min miles and took 3 mins off last year. Very well organised, lots of parking and toilet facilities. Marshalls very friendly and excellent T-Shirt at the end. This is my race for seeing what effect the winter training has had and what effect Christmas excesses have had. Roll on London Marathon. Date of review: January 28, 2013
In short: Fantastic Race, 11/10!!! In full: From start to finish I can't find fault with this race.
Slick registration by friendly and efficient volunteers. Good race facilities, plenty of toilets and not a portaloo in sight. More smiley, helpful and very vocal marshals than I have experienced before and a nice tech Tee shirt on completion.
Add to that a very speedy flat-as-a-pancake course, bottled water halfway round and accurate chip timing, this race really ticks every box. PBed on this course last year and knocked almost 2 minutes off my time today, despite a very strong headwind in the final few miles.
Excellent job Lliswerry Runners!!! Date of review: January 27, 2013
In full: Super race as usual,no problem with reversing the course although I made the mile markers slightly long for 7 miles followed by very short for the eighth coming out pretty right in the end.Very lucky with the weather ,near perfect conditions with many pbs I expect.A very popular race for mostly quality runners-roll on next year Date of review: January 27, 2013
