In short: Best 5k around In full: This is a must every year, its flat, fast and painfull! A PB for me this year so came away with a big smile to add to my sore legs. :] the best 5k around. Date of review: June 19, 2009
In short: Good race - nice and flat and only once round. In full: Only suggestions for next year would be to have some way of getting folks to line up in rough expected finish order at the start as it's tight for passing for the first 1km.
Minor gripe would be that the surface was a bit gritty and dusty - got in the eyes abit but I'd take that rather than rain!

In short: Nice, flat course but loose, gritty surface was not great for speed. In full: Marshalling was good. Parked cars along the edge of the first section, where runners were bunched, was not a plus! Date of review: June 25, 2008
In short: A well organised, 5k on a flat course In full: As in the past the race was very well organised , with the added bonus that the surface of the forest trail has been upgraded. Due to its popularity, the race is probably getting close to capacity, as evidenced by the need to park quite a few cars along the main driveway (ie the first 500m of the course).
