In short: Fantastic race and best value event I have done In full: Great communication prior to event. Easy registration and good quality coffee van to get a brew before the race.
Course is as flat as you can get with one minor climb through Great Eccleston. If it doesn't blow then this is definite PB potential.
Race is cheap to enter so getting a huge chocolate bar, bottle of water, hat, medal and hot pot at the end makes you marvel at the value. Hats off to Alan this is a great event and the start/finish was made better than year 1. With an organiser who listens to feedback and knows what runners want I can only see this event going from strength to strength. Date of review: January 21, 2013
In short: fantastic race, well organised and good pb course! In full: Brilliant race, lovely country roads, fantastic marshalls who were absolute heros in that cold! Well organised, loved the chocolate in the goody bag. Our club loved the race and we'll be spreading the word for next year! Date of review: January 20, 2013
In short: Brilliant low-key race. In full: Lightning fast course in my opinion, without any slopes steep enough to put you off your stride -I went 2 minutes faster than Bristol without being in much better shape. Very well organised and well marshalled, even though it was in the countryside you never went an (accurately-marked) mile without seeing marshals and supporters. The combination of free food (hot-pot) and goody bags (hat, chocolate, medal) at the finish seemed generous and a nice touch. More car parking and less wind in the last few miles would have been great, but you can't have it all! Also, all credit to the organisers for not cancelling it due to the recent panic about weather. The course was fine and it's not like anyone froze to death. Date of review: January 20, 2013
In full: A fantastic course to set a pb, mildly undulating, would have been quicker if it wasn't for the wind. Great organisation and prizes, sports cap water bottle at each water station. I think in time it will be as big as brass monkey and helsby. Date of review: January 20, 2013
