In short: Fabulously organised, great atmosphere, generally brilliant In full: This was my first 10k and I was very nervous. But this event was so well done, it calmed all my fears. Sign-up and pre-event communication was good. On the day, the organisation was excellent. The route was scenic, running along the coastal road. There were spectators and marshalls along the whole route, cheering you on. Goody bags were given on completion with some great freebies, fruit and drinks. They also did free technical t-shirts and free pre or post race sports massages. Altogether an excellent race and I can't wait to do it again next year. Date of review: February 13, 2012
In short: Well organised friendly run In full: Exceptionally well organised 10K, even down to the lack of an head wind along the sea front! Nice flat course too. I can only agree with all the positive comments made so far Date of review: February 13, 2012
In short: Fantastic In full: My 1st attempt at this race and enjoyed it a lot. Managed to beat my previous 10k time by 3 mins. Conditions were perfect. All in all it was organised brilliantly. Made up with the free shirt and well stocked goody bag. Date of review: February 13, 2012
In short: Great technical shirt and medal, the rest of the goody bag was also good. In full: Not got a bad word to say about the event. The organisation was good with plenty of marshalls both at the start/finish and around the course. Had to cross a couple of open roads but as I said the marshalls did a fine job.
Will admit that this years race was a little dull weather wise, but the scenery would I'm sure be glorious if I could have actually seen much of it for the mist/cloud.
Another good point was that the large sized shirts were actually large enough to fit someone who wasn't a racing snake build, unlike the shirts I've had at other events. Date of review: February 12, 2012
In short: Back for another go at a fantastic race. Brilliant organisation, regular friendly pre race updates via email, and amazing encouragement on the day. Perfect PB course (when wind still!) Date of review: February 12, 2012
