In short: Fast, slick and well supported race In full: Fast 2 lap course but with enough long gradients to give you a work out! Although this was a club dominated field the atmosphere was friendly and supportive and beginners aiming for sub 60 minutes wont feel lonely or out of place here.
Ideal race for PB chasers with an accurately measured course that matched my Garmin to the yard! Just what you would expect from a very professionally organized event.
Coincides with the school fete so plenty for supporters to do whilst waiting for the runners to return making this a good familly event. I will definitely return next year: one of my favourites. Date of review: June 21, 2009
In short: Good community event In full: Nice two lap course through the town and along the bypass. It's virtually flat and has great pb potential. Organisation was spot on, nice medal, banana and yoghurt at the end. Support was very good. I cannot fault it! Date of review: June 21, 2009
In short: Nice flat course In full: Nice, pleasant run. Only minor gripe, is that greater organisation is needed re: Parking. Too many "Eco Terriosts" had parked cars on the side of roads, instead of using car parks. Date of review: June 21, 2009
In short: Once again ,excellent race. Well done Chris Barlow et al. In full: This is my local race and once again it did not disappoint. Weather just about perfect, organisation excellent with great atmosphere. This race is getting a really good reputation as being a pb course and as such was full before race day. This says volumes about the quality of this 10km. Congratulations once again Chris. See you next year Date of review: June 21, 2009
In short: tougher than it appeared In full: Good course, well organised for the actual race. Needed more info on parking before getting there. The ending of the race rather confusing. As it was also very narrow and the only way in and out the last runners must have felt a little deflated seeing people leaving.The wind made it tough this year but I would do it again Date of review: June 26, 2008
