In short: A fantastic mass participation event In full: A little confusing at the start as "waves" weren't clearly signed. But excellent on-course support and well marshalled overcame the early blip. Text of time after race was a nice touch. Would recommend. Date of review: October 31, 2008
In short: Fantastic In full: My first 10 miler and Great run, loved every minute of it, apart from the mud from the grassy areas. Weather was cold and wet but I was too excited to notice. Car parking on the Common wasnt a problem as after the race we changed in the car, put on some dry warm clothes and headed for Gunwharf Mews for some lunch. By the time we got back we made an easy exit and headed north up the motorway without any problem. Brilliant day - well done Paula for making it special! Date of review: October 31, 2008
In short: one of the best In full: i thoroughly enjoyed this run, the time just disappeared along with the miles. Great support and excellant marshalling.
Was I the only one when I opened my t-shirt to have one big smudge. Shames its unwearable/ First time this has ever happened looks as though it was folded while still warm from printing Date of review: October 29, 2008
In short: I'll be back for the fifth time next ! In full: I really enjoyed the Great South Run.It is my favourite run of the year the course is fast and flat. .The organization was great-despite - me being allocated a starting place in the Orange Zone A (not the Green Zone A).I used common sense and queried my allocation and was told to start in a more appropriate zone-which I did! The weather was poor for the third year in a row. However, I still managed to meet my target-for which I was really pleased. Keep up the good work organisers!
