In short: Great Marshalls In full: The Marshalls were brilliant, 95% appalled and cheered you on and I try to thank most of them on the way round. Great but challenging course. Only negatives, XL top please for the larger blokes like me and can we park nearer the start/finish Date of review: January 22, 2009
In short: Very enjoyable, only one grumble. In full: Marshals were up and about early and very helpful to direct you to a car park. A shame I ended up at the start and therefore didn't get to race HQ until after the race, as the t-shirts were given out at the start rather than at the finish (why?), I therefore didn't get one. As every other race issues them at the finish why not here??
Apart from this mild grumble really enjoyed the race. Hills were nowhere near what I was expecting and great to have a first lap to assess the course before putting the hammer down for the second.
Eagerly waiting for the results to appear on the website but nothing yet.
Travelled a long way for this one and will have it on my radar for next year. The marshals were superb and the weather very kind. I hate running in the rain and although it was cold and a bit windy the sunshine was awesome.
In short: Excellent race - Great way to start the year off In full: A challenging course with some tough hills but not as hellish as I was expecting. Friendly atmosphere with encouraging marshals. Well done Yaxely.
