In short: Great way to spend a Friday evening In full: This is a lovely race; it's friendly, the organisation is great, the centre (race HQ) wonderful and with a BBQ, tea, home-made cakes and even beer to round off the evening it's as near to perfect as you can get (ok, so the bit in the middle - the actual running - hurt quite a lot but I did beat my time from last year by over a minute so it was worth the pain!). Thanks Flyers! Date of review: June 20, 2009
In short: It does what it says on the tin - Flat, Fast, Traffic Free - Great Organisation In full: I may be biased ( I am a member of AFF) but congrats go to all the organisers & marshalls who made this another successful AFF event. A great course that suits both elite, intermediate and beginner runners. Great PB potential race having tonight beaten my own record by some way Date of review: June 19, 2009
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!
Welcome barbecue afterwards Date of review: June 26, 2008
