In short: Preferred the new route to the old one, although I would say hillier. In full: Can't say much apart from excellent organisation and not much you can do about the heat. Plenty of water provided, maybe a sponge would have helped? I only ran to complete the run so my time was awful, but will be back next year. The hill at 11miles is not nice but it was still a lot nicer to finish through the town. Date of review: June 11, 2006
In short: A well organised race, [only] spoilt by the heat In full: A lot of lowish scores for this. I reckon the heat has influenced them. Whilst I prefer the normal route, this one might've been OK if the temperature had not been approaching 30C. Ignoring the heat, it was very well organised, there was a nice T-shirt and medal, the end-of-race refreshments were up to their normal standard: ice lollies and free Lucozade. The chip timing was a nice feature too.
To those people who've answered 'No' to the 'do it again?' question, give it another go and judge it after that.
See y'all next year. Date of review: June 11, 2006
In short: Would have been a great race but the heat was unforgiving! In full: I hate to be boring and say the same as everyone else but the weather made the race pretty unbearable at times. St johns ambulance were kept mighty busy! Being a city girl, I loved the scenery but there were a few long stretches/ hills. The ice lolly at the end was fab! Date of review: June 11, 2006
In short: Good event in blistering conditions In full: Lots of plus's for this race, marshals, police did a good job medal and tee shirt On the minus - just the heat - guess thats what you can get with a June event - Did over 10 mins slower than last year - and happy enough Date of review: June 11, 2006
