In short: Great Day, Not sure of it's PB potential but i got one anyway! In full: Great Day, Not sure of it's PB potential but i got one anyway! memorable moments; the clanking rails when running over the bridge, the evil sliproad after the first bridge crossing, and yes... the hill at 9 miles! Overall good run, nice finish area. Good T-shirt and medal although the print came of the ribbon before I drove home!! Cups of water: crap... I will never get used to these.

In short: Enjoyable run over the Humber In full: Quite a pleasant, and scenic run considering its a road race, a couple of hills worst one was at the 9 mile mark, but all in all fairly flat. Well organised, good marshalls Nice medal, shame theirs no date on it makes you think they were left over from last year. Nice t-shirts, considering i finished in 1:39 i was surprised they run out of XL`s
In short: The hills were not out of the ordinary for road running In full: I've no idea how friendly it was to beginners as I am well away from that now, to make the rating relevant there shuold be a "not applicable" section.
I thoroughly enjoyed the race. it was well organised but I would expect some complaints about the toilet facilities available (did not affect me). The fact that there were lots of water stations was great because its hard to drink on the run from a beaker.
Great race using a fantastic icon Thank you to all who worked to organise it
In short: Great run, great event, see you next year!!! In full: Great to run over the bridge with the views. The supporters in Barton were well appreciated. The 9th mile was tough but it was a great feeling when you finally reach the top. Possibly could be more toilets next year. Date of review: June 24, 2007
In short: Well organised, good support on South bank and at the end In full: My second run over the bridge this month (the Humber bridge 10K is another fine event), and a second PB. Lot’s of enthusiastic well wishers on the south bank and all the race marshals were supportive. Great organisation in the field car parks – could have been a disaster given all the rain but they got straw down to avoid problems. Tip for those worried about too few toilets, walk down to the tourist centre and you will find a large toilet block. A medal, bottle of water, a t-shirt and a PB – well worth running.
In short: This was my first time for this event and the hills were far tougher than I expected. In full: I will try to do more hill training next time although that won't be easy around South Lincolnshire. Organisers, more toilets next year please. Date of review: June 24, 2007
