In short: Very quick and well organised In full: Good quick course, friendly atmosphere. Only minor gripes would be a lack of a water station on route, and the last lap towards the finish was soul destroying. well done to the organisers - will be back Date of review: February 25, 2008
In short: Super fast course, confirmed by all the PB's! In full: Like so many others, I managed to knock 2 mins off what I thought was a respectable PB!! Weather was ideal also, marshalls on the whole friendly and cheerful, and great to get so much local support in the town.
In short: A great fast race In full: A great race and I got a PB by nearly 2 minutes. Good atmosphere and scenic route. Seeing the lead runners coming back towards you can be a little daunting but also uplifting - but at least Dan Robinson is a club mate! Date of review: February 24, 2008
In short: Great race In full: Marshals were mostly very friendly and supportive to this back marker but would echo the earlier comment about some disinterest shown by younger marshals. It's a little disconcerting to have such good runners come flying past you but it's also nice to have the opportunity to see them come back into town. I know it's flat really but didn't it feel uphill out and back?? Date of review: February 24, 2008
In short: Great race. Absolutely smashed my P.B In full: Lovely setting for a race. Good support in the village itself and very fast race. Smashed my P.B by four minutes. A great morning for me. Date of review: February 24, 2008
In short: A hat-trick of PBs at this event, so I went home happy! In full: Managed to get a PB for the third year running on this flat and scenic course. Good weather conditions this year, no wind and a bit milder than the last two years.
Excellent organisation and very friendly atmosphere, again brilliant to see such a broad range of abilities from the very elite to fun-runners of all shapes, sizes and ages.
The only cavil I would have is that some of the marshalls seemed very young and a tad disinterested, so did not get the vocal support I would have liked.
Look forward to another PB next year! Date of review: February 24, 2008
In short: Friendly, fast, and very very flat In full: Cracking race - clever route, amazingly flat, and brilliantly marshalled. What more can you ask for? No wonder entries closed before Christmas. Date of review: February 24, 2008
