In short: A very well organised event, well done CONAC In full: This is a very well organised event, with a good atmosphere. The first mile or so is easy going but then there is a long drag/hill which is a real test. Most of it is a 2 lapper so you get to run the hill twice. Date of review: April 24, 2011
In short: Hot hot hot! In full: Yet again a very well organised race. Well organised HQ and start. Plenty of drinks stations and encouraging marshalls. The course is not flat, that hill the second time around was a killer!! Nonetheless well done CONAC! Date of review: April 24, 2011
In short: Worth turning up, just for the excellent quality medal! In full: I found this race whilst sifting through the Runners World website, it looked like a decent race from the ratings that were posted and I wasn't disappointed.
NEGATIVE: It was quite cramped inside the ski headquarters, this made it difficult to see/read the signs that were up. Why was it cramped? lots of people waiting for a few number of toilets. The water station could have been better organised, there were people there, just not very good at handing out water.
POSITIVE: The race route is quite scenic, particularly the first km. All the marshalls and the baggage handlers were very friendly and took time out to have a chat after the race. The free tea and coffee at the finish were a welcome treat! Despite no-one there knowing me, I still got applauded and cheered in at the finish, which I thought was nice of the spectators.
GOODY BAG & MEDAL: The medal had a diameter of about 6.5cm and of a good weight. It was black and gold in colour with the event name/year on it and unusually a web address of the organisers. The goody bag had a can of soft drink, creme egg and cereal bar in it, with a few other bits & bobs.
You'll need to run a time of about 32 mins to be hopeful of finishing in the top three men. The last runner came in at 1 hr 15 mins, so the overall standard was higher than at other 10K races I've completed. Date of review: July 21, 2010
In short: Great course and really well organised. Plus, VFM in spades - the goody bag was way better than anyone could expect In full: Really enjoyed this - a genuinuely interesting course, with probably 2.5 - 3k of challenging uphill (bear in mind this is near Norwich). Marshalls were brilliant, and great conditions for running. Well done to the organisers on this one - quality event Date of review: April 7, 2010
In short: Well done CONAC again!! In full: Another well organised event!! Good pre race organisation, well marshalled on the day, easter egg in your goody bag and free tea and coffee, what more could you want!!! Date of review: April 7, 2010
