Many thanks for taking part in the 10k on Wednesday. I have read the comments regarding distance, the course was measured before last year (the certificate is on our website) and there have been no changes in the layout of the circuit between 2012 & 2013. Last year we received comments that it was a short course! This year it is a long course!
See you all again in 2014.

I know that I am biased with my rating of the event
In full: we were considering using this for our club champs next year, but because the course was long for the second year on the trot will probably go with a more accurate course. i can not work out why the finish has moved so far down the pit lane. ran the course before the changes last year and it was pretty spot on, now its almost most of the runners i spoke to last night got there run as 6.4 not 6.2. all that said great tech tops and great support by silson on the course. Get the distance right and its pretty much one of the fastest 10k s in the country. Date of review: May 9, 2013
In short: Felt it was longer than 10km In full: Agree with other runners that distance was out. Still a great event, great t shirt, fantastic venue, did the 25th and the 30th anniversary, so see you in 5 years!! Date of review: May 9, 2013
In short: long course In full: in short a great well organised event, with good marshalls and good T shirts. the real problem is the course for the past 2 years is almost 0.2 miles long. on such a flat fast course this is very frustrating. 12 members of my club who all wear garmins all said the same. please please please get it right as we all train so hard to do well, only not to PB because the course is LONG.

In short: Running round the Grand Prix circuit is different! In full: Great organization and a friendly welcome. My first time running round the Grand Prix circuit. Wide, traffic free(!), flattish, so potentially very fast, although exposed to the wind. A big thank you to the marshalls and others involved in the organization, which was buttery-smooth.

In short: Thoroughly enjoyable, well organised event well worth my 80 mile journey from Nottingham. Don't think Lewis Hamilton would be too impressed with my 23.44 min laps though! See you next year for my 3rd entry. Date of review: May 24, 2012
