In short: Does what is says on the tin! In full: Great race, excellent organisation and a what is the problem with the views? Someone else on here has already said it but I was concentrating on getting around as quickly as I could. I spent most of the time staring towards the next person to pick off! I almost missed the view of the IoW as I was trying not to fall apart. Well done and thanks to all involved! Date of review: November 26, 2012
In short: Great local race In full: I've done this race a few times and I am always impressed by the organisation. The final couple of miles are along the seafront, the course is fast and the sections in the airfield are traffic free. I got another PB in 2012 and look forward to next year.

In short: "Fast flat course", they weren't kidding! In full: What a smoothly run event, very well organised from start to finish. Excellent marshalls, very encouraging, well laid out course, good water stops and some jelly babies thrown in too.
I saw plenty in advance saying that this was a good course for a PB, well they were not wrong! I absolutely smashed my PB on this course, took almost 10 minutes off it and finished in 1:45, so so happy about that.
The goody bag was great, a nice tote bag with cake, banana and drink inside, what more could you ask for. Medal is nice as well. All in all superb, very pleased with all of it. A big thank you goes out to the organisers.
Will I be back next year, oh yes! Date of review: November 21, 2012

In short: A great day & really well marshalled In full: Really nice route to run and good regularity of water stations. The route was clearly marked by marshals who were all very encouraging and enthusiastic. Coming into the finish was great; lots of support and good finishing packs. I had a very enjoyable run and the weather was good to :) Date of review: November 20, 2012
In short: Very well marshalled couldn't fault them. We looked round course day b4, had concerns about going round entrance &exit of petrol station but u know they even thought of that coz they announced at start of race we were being diverted around back of In full: Garage. Everything well signposted, from collecting chips, leaving baggage, parking etc, a must do race ! Rate it as 3rd best half for atmosphere & definitely higher up for organisation !

In short: THIS is how you organise a road race. In full: Yet again Gosport Road Runners delivered a superbly organised race. From beginners to experienced runners, there's a welcome for you here. The best marshalling of any race I've done and a goody bag that puts professionally organised races to shame. Everything about this race has the hallmark of being organised by a running club which knows what it's doing. Well worth the entry fee, and a PB by more than 7 mins for me.
