In short: Very Hot day but good course & great marshalls In full: Good day allround but very hot, friendly marshalls offering support all the way round and the course was fairly good, a couple of bottle necks where the route narrowed but overall plenty of room to run your own pace.
The only downside was using plastic cups for water as it was so hot bottles would have been a better option to battle dehydration but that is the only criticism of an otherwise good day. Date of review: August 22, 2012
In short: Fantastic way to celebrate 25 years of a fantastic friendly running club In full: Despite summer arriving in all it's glory I absolutely loved this multi-terrain course - it had a little bit of everything in it. The friendliest marshals ever and your result available and printed before you went home. Will definitely run this race again should it return next year. Well done to all involved.

In short: Enjoyable race along and over the river - well organised with good marsalls In full: Hottest day of the year so was always going to be a struggle. I really enjoyed the course albeit multi-terrain and very twisty...although running when it's so very very hot and so close to water could be construed as a form of torture
The new bridge over river at had an interesting earthquake feel to it as was oscillating so much ... some people said it made them feel a bit sea sick ..... you'd pay good money for this at Alton Towers (other theme parks are available)
In short: Well organised, fun, hot weather added to the challenge - 1st 10km ever: a very good induction! In full: Due to the heat, one extra water station could be the only thing I would offer as a comment for improvement. Was very impressed with clear organisation, number of supportive friendly marshalls, the beautiful course, the highlighted tree roots and steps, the obvious amount of good preparation, the tag system, the number of people helping at the water stations, the welcome water, mars bar and crisps at the end, & the t-shirt. All in all, so glad I did it! Thanks to all. Date of review: August 21, 2012
