In short: This is my second "Bluewater 10k" health willing will be back for the third year In full: Very well organised event,loved the view from the roundabout of the ladies doing a very vigourous warm up and the men just doing men things on the other side of the barrier! Not sure about the earlier comment about the garmin measurement with the weather being so hot it felt like 10K PLUS. Goodie bag was great again,thanks to all who were involved in the organisation Date of review: June 14, 2009
In short: A very nice, well organised run. In full: A good day out. The start line had been moved from last year cramping the runners somewhat. The warmth and hill made it a challenging run. I thought the womens orange luminous shirts were great.
The race organisation was good and the goodie bag had some nice treats in.
Getting out of the centre took about 45 minutes, compared with 5 to get in. No complaints otherwise.
I'll be back next year Date of review: June 14, 2009
In short: A bit hilly(!) but a good run, excellent goodie bag & medal In full: Very well organised, good number of water stations (and lucazade before & after the race) even with the hot temperatures. 5K Hill is a Ba$tard, and from there onwards it is undulating (a bit playful!). Scenary, not the best. Excellent turnout of runners, traffic free, very friendly and definately do it again but some more hill training needed! Date of review: June 14, 2009
In short: Another good organised run in the heat...... In full: A great organised run as usual, this is my second time running this race and i can safely say i'll be back next year (providing they don't get too ambitious and become over subscribed). However, the parking situation was a bit of a joke, i'm sure some people missed the start.
The hill after the 4k mark was a challenge in the heat but nice to have it at that distance any later than that and many runners would probably struggle.
The goody bag was generous, good value for money considering the entry fee includes the nice techical t. Did any find that the run didn't measure out 10k? My garmin read just over 9.5k - same issue as last year. Date of review: June 14, 2009
In short: Well organized race bedding in nicely In full: A very hot morning and a very well organized race. My son loved the kids race, an early start means very few spectators umfortunately, but the runners were pretty friendly. Date of review: June 14, 2009
