In short: Well organised again - except for the finish In full: Very bad mix of runners and traffic on the run in - if you are going to keep the finish line where it was you need to risk assess the road junction to the car parking area. I was nearly hit by a car on the run in. What happened to the long sleeved shirt - the bag was a poor substitute.
In short: Pretty much as expected. In full: Well organised, bar the start (probably due to last minute change). off road bit ok bit like beirut in places!! I managed a PB so not all bad. Another one bites the dust before the London. Thanks to the organisers and marshalls good effort.... Date of review: February 25, 2007
In short: A good family weekend In full: Thanks for all the effort you put into the race. We had a great weekend in Lincs. Did the Lincoln tourist bit Saturday then onto the race Sunday morning which for a someone with a love of history was made special by the setting. Trying to get back into running again after losing fitness over the last few months and the race was probably a bit overambitious for the moment. Didn't enjoy the last 3 - but still managed a sprint finish which my boys insist on! Great that there was a fun run for them - it always makes it easier for me to convince them to come with me to a run. To cap a good weeken, got back in time to watch Chelsea win the Carling Cup. One suggestion for next year - please fill the water cups - half a cup every three or four miles only just wets the lips.
In short: Enjoyable but the mud was a bit cheeky In full: Well organised, and marshalled. The off-road bit lived up to expectations. Any chance of some secure baggage next year? Date of review: February 25, 2007
In short: A good half marathon well marshalled and friendly In full: Better directions to start needed otherwise smooth as silk.Something like 5mins to start this way sign at car park? Great marshalling again especially at XC start section. Not one for fast times i lost about 3mins to pace b4 and after XC section. Although you know that when entering so no problem.Overall very pleased with race and certainly quick with results etc Well Done!! Date of review: February 25, 2007
In short: Great Half to jump start your running year In full: big well done "STRIDERS" i enjoyed this race just as i did last year and i'm sure i'll enjoy it next year as i WILL be back as i've gotta a score to settle with "THAT LAST HILL" lol, i knew it was coming but it "GOT" me, so look out last hill, I'll be back.
well done to the marshalls, especially the one at the start of the Xcountry bit on the return who told me off for using my mobile and said i would get a better time if i didnt use it lol
