In short: Excellent race, course, organisation In full: Such a well organised event - have it all covered from car park marshalls to changing facilities and a fast course to boot! Love the goody bag (no flyers!) and very impressive medal!
Best event I have participated in - even beats the big Bristol races (10Km and Half). I will be back! Date of review: December 5, 2011
In short: Excellent well organised race In full: Undulating course with no real steep climbs, good spectator support and excellent goody bag at the finish. Very windy on the day which took away chance for a PB Date of review: November 29, 2011
In short: Good race despite the wind; but pedestrian access issue In full: I enjoyed my run despite the gusty wind. It was at least dry! I was disappointed that 2 gates onto the Showground that I tried were closed to pedestrian access, one opposite the Premier Inn (unlike in March 2011). This was not great just ahead of the race. The map for entrants shows lots of gates and those closed should be marked. Date of review: November 29, 2011
In short: Enjoyable course, fab goody bag and LOVED the purple medal ribbon In full: Two lap course starting from Norwich Showground around the surrounding countryside. You don't actually go anywhere near the City of Norwich itself. One very shallow, long hill and one slightly steeper one through the college campus, but still great potential for a PB. The goody bag was generous and I loved the medal - purple ribbon and just a little bit different. The day was fairly windy but added to the challenge, boy was it good to turn a corner and feel it behind you for a change! Toilet queue must have been one of the fastest moving I'd ever stood in....so well done on the organisation and facilities. Date of review: November 29, 2011
In short: Organisation, course, facilities, marshalls, support in fact everything first class -shame about the WIND In full: What a fantastic race. All round every thing was excellent from car parking to changing facilities to medal, T-shirt etc etc. But most impressive was the course. Mostly flat and some nice down hill stretches, unfortunately the wind which, when head on, felt like trying to run through water ! I did manage a PB but only by 40 seconds. Will be back for definate next year. Date of review: November 28, 2011
