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
In short: Fab race, ideal time trial for London Marathon In full: What a great race. Lliswerry Runners have done it again. I used it as part of my training for VLM as a timetrial and it did everything it said on the tin. Great PB potential with it being so flat.
Can only agree with the reviewers of previous years, and the technical t was a real bonus, just a pity they ran out of smaller sizes for those finishing towards the end.
Would I do it again? You bet! Date of review: January 29, 2012
In short: Great to run in again this year. Only let down was no water at finish - Perhaps I should run quicker ! In full: Missed out on the technical T - Shirt as I tend to opt for the long sleeve version as they are handy for training runs in the winter - Next year I'll go for the Tech T.
Well done again Lliswerry Runners - Hope I'll be there for many years to come :-) Date of review: February 9, 2011
In short: Great place to start as you mean to go on. In full: Tried this last year and was slightly caught out by the sheer unadulterated flatness of the course. Came back a bit stronger this year and loved it all the way. Nice T-shirt as well. Date of review: January 31, 2011
