In short: Enjoyable race In full: Always enjoy this race, even though this year I was over a half hour slower & in some considerable pain. The finish behind the Arts Centre in their 'back garden' is good for familes & supporters. Weather has also been good for the past 3 years. Date of review: April 30, 2007
In short: impressive, Bracknell has pretty spots. Serious toilet issue, missed meeting friends & warming up. But loved the 9am start, lots of water/sponge stations & marshalls so encouraging. In full: Apart from the toilets, every aspect of this race was excellent. Found the end a little windy & kept thinking the finish was just around the next corner. But a PB & will be back next yr. Harvest Ride must be the longest road - EVER Date of review: April 30, 2007
In short: Very well organised race, with enough water stations In full: First timer to Bracknell, I would agree with the lack of loos, but this is a regular occurrence at races!
A well thought out course that had some hills & made the most of avoiding Bracknell town center.
Both the wife & I managed PB's 1 hour 44 34 for me, and 1 hour 34 min 38 for the wife, who even if she got a pb was a bit gutted to come 11th fastest woman overall, and 4th in her age group. If only I had that problem! Date of review: April 30, 2007
In short: Well organised race, with great support all the way round from all the marshall and race helpers especially at all the water station which thier was lots of considering how hot it was, excellent planning on behalf of the officials, see you all again Date of review: April 30, 2007
In short: Good start, time, well marshalled, good atmosphere, great challenge In full: I ran a pb by 2 and half minutes - so a good day - the course was challenging without being beastly - great support from the water stations, marshalls and crowds. Good quality medal and goody bag which really makes all the difference after the effort. Thanks for the early start as well - good idea and for taking out the spike near the finish. All in all I would highly recomend this race to all levels of runner. Date of review: April 30, 2007
