In short: Good PB chances, shame medal was identical to last years! In full: Nice course and love running on the track at start & finish. Medal was identical to last years, would be nice for a different design. Good organisation at getting the results up so quickly, but why does it take 30 minutes after the last runner finishing to have the prize giving? Date of review: June 5, 2011
In full: Enjoyble run flat and you always knew where to run, very quick! i smashed my pb :) lots of quick runners too. First km is a bit narrow, very tricky to past fellow runners after that its smooth, weather was great hardly any wind. Would run it again for sure! Date of review: September 2, 2010
In short: A nice off road route In full: I found the route interesting and found the start in the stadium was a nice touch. Out on the main course it was crowded in place and some of the lady marshals really enjoyed shouting “mind the bollards” perhaps a little too much!
In short: Fast & flat In full: Bit of a contrived course, but not a hill in sight so PB potential. Start and finish on track always good, particularly with motivation from the commentator. Km markers did not seem accurate.........oherwise my pace was varying by 40 secs a Km! Well organised race. Date of review: June 6, 2009
In short: Flat, but measured a little long and congestion seems to prevent PBs. In full: Congested in places, all off the road, which is great, but 2 laps of pretty dull scenery. I measured this about 300m long, other runners felt distance was inaccurate too. Well organised though and a friendly evening. Many more signs at the entrance and surrounding roads would have helped. I lived in Portsmouth for years but got lost trying to get into the stadium through the new entrance. Date of review: June 5, 2009
