In short: very wet n muddy,good fun, start set up a bit messy.. In full: Despite the rather large downpour, it was a good race on trails, tarmac and gravel,well marshalled,only gripe was the set up at the start,unclear where actual start line was, and as a consequence finishing times are a little 'out'. Very hard to over take and get into the swing for the first mile or so because of narrowness of pathway...But for a local race, it has a great atmosphere, good off road route and a pleasant run. :) Date of review: June 11, 2009
In short: Start could have been better, but a good course, very wet! In full: Not a bad course overall, well marshalled on the way round but the start was a bit of a shambles...not clear where the start line was and all crammed into a small path.
The weather played it's part but didn't dampen the atmosphere.
My only minor niggle is the timing - I ran my first Sub 50 but the official timing was just over 50, this was due to me being a third of the way down the pack, which was a little frustrating. Good fun overall and good for beginners. Date of review: June 11, 2009
In short: Flat'ish 10k with hlaf on private roads/paths In full: Long downhill start for 1.5k, then flat until over two motorway bridges, a quick uphill then long low uphill to finish, PB potential, i took over a min off best time, Water bottle at end is a good touch, something that can be used!
