In short: Good fast course In full: I enjoyed this race and loved the course. It was mostly flat, but with a couple of tougher bits thrown in to keep it interesting. There was some good scenery and country roads, and I didn't mind the dual carriageway as it least there were fields around it.
The marshalls were very good at keeping cars off the roads whilst also keeping the drivers happy - I've never seen so many cars being hold up by a race with cheery drivers instead of impatient ones before.
The organisation overall was great and getting free print-outs of the result was a very nice touch. The only slight problem was the car park being full nearly a hour before the race and no-one to advise us where to park, but that's being a bit harsh since it was a good race.
In short: Fast course, nice tee. In full: Smoothly organised event. Well marshalled but boring dual carridge way section. Perfect weather for a PB this year. Strong field with many club runners could put beginners off. Date of review: November 19, 2006
In short: Flat, fast course. Very well marshalled. In full: A few icy patches but otherwise fairly fast. Well organised and very well marshalled. Nice T shirt (nice mug when T shirts run out). Date of review: November 20, 2005
In short: Excellent all round In full: Ran this in 2002 and 2004. Was lucky to get good conditions (and hence times!) each time - a windy day would make this a nightmare, particularly on the A59 Dual Carriageway. Organisation is excellent. I plan to do this one again in 2005 (Injury permitting!) Date of review: October 2, 2005
In short: Fairly flat course so not too hard for a beginner In full: My first 10 mile race so cannot compare with others. It is a fairly flat race so was not too hard for a beginner. Overall seemed well organised but were quite a few road junctions where cars were waiting to get out so probably hard to marshal. I liked the mug memento. Would do again.
