In short: Well done to the team In full: First time at Birchwood, and delighted to come back next year. Started with a warm up on the fun run with my daughter, and this too was very well organised and the marshalls friendly and encouraging.
The organisation throughout was excellent.
Don't worry about those 'climbs' over the motorways - come to Wales and try some real scenery :-) Date of review: August 25, 2009
In short: same as last year In full: well organised, plenty of parking, no confusion, chip timing, fast course. I have run this twice now and will continue to return until i am too old! I liked the memento of a towel as it is different. Date of review: August 25, 2009
In short: Well organised, Fast course In full: Good fast course, good atmosphere provided by lots of marshals. Great finishing straight. Just missed my PB by a few seconds - maybe next time... Date of review: August 24, 2009
In short: Ideal for the 1st timer or a PB chaser In full: A great race, very well organised, thanks to everybody who gave their time to make this a special event, agreeded with the earlier comment that a medal would have been nice or a - Birchwood 10k t-shirt - rather than a towel Date of review: August 24, 2009
In short: Marshalls should come to this race as a training course In full: Great organisation, good value for a chip timed race, good atmosphere, the motorway bridges are harder than they look and pleasant course. Second time I've done it, will do it again. Date of review: August 24, 2009
