In short: Fab race, ideal time trial for London Marathon In full: What a great race. Lliswerry Runners have done it again. I used it as part of my training for VLM as a timetrial and it did everything it said on the tin. Great PB potential with it being so flat.
Can only agree with the reviewers of previous years, and the technical t was a real bonus, just a pity they ran out of smaller sizes for those finishing towards the end.
Would I do it again? You bet! Date of review: January 29, 2012
In short: Great to run in again this year. Only let down was no water at finish - Perhaps I should run quicker ! In full: Missed out on the technical T - Shirt as I tend to opt for the long sleeve version as they are handy for training runs in the winter - Next year I'll go for the Tech T.
Well done again Lliswerry Runners - Hope I'll be there for many years to come :-) Date of review: February 9, 2011
In short: Great place to start as you mean to go on. In full: Tried this last year and was slightly caught out by the sheer unadulterated flatness of the course. Came back a bit stronger this year and loved it all the way. Nice T-shirt as well. Date of review: January 31, 2011
In short: Well Done Lliswerry! In full: Excellent from start to finish-lucky with a lovely day but everything organised well. Brill t-shirt at the end. Just how a race shoud be run! Will definately be back next year. Thank you to the organisers - you deserve a pat on the back! Date of review: January 31, 2011
In short: Fast, flat and definate PB course. In full: Well organised, fast flat race. Walk to the start is very short and helps with the warm down at the end. Very friendly, helpful and nice t-shirt to go with it. Will be putting it in my race diary for next year. Shower and changing facilities close by. Date of review: January 31, 2011
In short: Well organised and good value In full: My 4th time doing this and the organisation was good as always. Great pb potential, value for money and we even got a technical top this year which is much appreciated. Nice homemade cakes on sale afterwards too. Thanks Lliswerry Runners will be back again next year. Date of review: January 31, 2011
In short: Brilliant as usual! In full: Superb race as it always is. Perfect conditions, esp the weather. Bit of a bummer that we can't use the school as that means a real trek to and from start/finish. Also the Amber Bar is a bit small and chaotic, but none of that is the fault of Lliswerry Runners, who did a grand job yet again. Must add that I was delighted with the new improved T shirt. Back next year :-) Date of review: January 30, 2011
