In short: Fast, flat, great value In full: My first time at Lliswerry. I was impressed with the organisation, all very smooth, plenty of parking, short queue for ladies loo(!), well-marshalled. Pleased to find that after-race handouts consisted of water and a nice quality T shirt - none of the usual unwanted junk that comes with "goody" bags. Well done Lliswerry Runners!

In short: Excellent as always In full: My fifth time doing this and it was the best yet. We arrived early due to possible problems registering on the day (there had been talk of it being full) but Lliswerry were well prepared and managed the extra numbers with ease. Weather was perfect and the marshals were plentiful and encouraging. It all ran like clockwork and the results were up that night. Well done Lliswerry, excellent job !

In full: Well organised sunday run. Fast flat course, with real PB potential ideally placed as a training run for spring Half/Marathon. I used it as a drop back run f the VLM. Only two critisisms if being really picky H2O in plastic cups not really helpful when running and although a lovely technical T shirt could we have XS for the ladies next year please. neither spoilt the run for me. I'll be back next year Date of review: January 30, 2012
In short: Great beginners run In full: Using this as a time trial for VLM. Managed to pump in almost metronomic 8min miles. The slow motion sprint finish was ambitious but enjoyable. Date of review: January 30, 2012
In short: Nice flat 8 miler! In full: Started/finished at the school, nice flat road race. Marshalls every so often and water station at some point past the halfway mark. Could not fault the organisation of run and a nice t-shirt for particpating. Would do again. Date of review: January 30, 2012
In short: Superbly organised race In full: This was my first time running Lliswerry 8 and I will definitely be back again next year! The event was extremely well organised. There were marshals all over the course warning of any hazards (speed bumps) or to make sure you didn't take any wrong turns!
In short: Great race for testing your speed, super quick!!! In full: Firstly, can I apologise to all the other runners, I was one of the 2 idiots who was slightly late and delayed the start by a minute or so, sincere apologies for making everyone wait in the cold.
Great race, really did what it said on the tin, pancake flat (an unusual feature for a S.Wales race!), plenty of space to run in, didn't use the water station today as the weather and distance didn't require it, but well manned. Marshaling was excellent especially the super motivator on the final turn onto the main road back.
Excellent tech T shirt in a full size range at a bargain price. One slight thing that could be improved would be to put up a couple of signs directing people from the stadium to the school, we were unfamiliar with the area hence didn't know where the start was, that is the only thing that could be improved on. Overall excellent job Lliswerry Runners. Great race to test your pace if your Spring Marathon training (and with few 8 milers about your likely to bag a PB!) Date of review: January 29, 2012
