In short: What Hill?! In full: Decent race and good organisation. 1st 2K starts off on a climb but not too bad. This is followed by a couple of 2K loops with narrow roads. On this part of the course you get 2 oppurtunities for water. You also get to lap people who are supposed to be on the right! Hmmm.
With the loop out of the way you make your way back home, with the well advertised hill around 7.5K in which lasts for around 1.5 K ish. To be fair its not the worst hill in the world and ive seen and done a lot worse (Cobra Classic) recently.
With the hill out of the way you get the chance for a downhill dash for the final 1.2K with the finish in Sanders Park. At the finish you get a medal and a bottle of water (hurrah, no dodgy T-Shirt!)
All in all quality race, the only suggestion would be, is to introduce a timing chip!
In short: Great local race!! Worth giving it a go!! In full: Started on time - which is fantastic!!! Very well organised! The water station was fine where it was - twice round the loop! Great atmosphere finishing in the park - it kept family entertained whilst waiting! Great! Thanks to everyone involved! Date of review: July 5, 2009
In short: Horrible last hill before finish! In full: Very scenic run. Hills not too bad going towards top of hill. Nice pleasing laps at top. But one hell of a hill the last 2km from end. I ended up walking up it. Also 25 degree heat. Heat + Hill no joy!! Date of review: June 30, 2009
