In short: excellent race and venue In full: The day was faultless, apart from the weather, I will be there next year and hpe that without the driving rain and headwind for a personal best time. Date of review: December 3, 2007
In short: Could be great, some marquees for the non-runners and post-race would have made this an even better event. In full: The conditions weren't the best, but the marshalling was positive and always upbeat -considering they were standing in the beating rain. Spectators didn't really have anywhere to go for shelter or viewing which was a shame. Some warm marquees would have been a definite improvement to the warehouse facilities. The goodie bag and the friendliness left me happy to have taken part. Date of review: December 2, 2007
In short: Good race In full: Good race. Weather a little annoying. It would have been nice if it was a one lap course - considering the rural setting, I can't see it being that hard. Couldn't help but feel all the twists and turns in the showground part of the course could have been simplified, especially all the sharp turns near the end. A long 'home strait'-style finish would have been better. Date of review: December 2, 2007
In short: Well done CONAC- good race. In full: I was very impressed. Organisation was good, start was grouped by time. Lots of water stations, friendly marshals, even a decent amount of support, despite the weather! Good medal and decent t-shirt too.
I like this race a lot (apart from the horrid 13th mile!) and would do it again. I hope they get to do a city centre and surrounds race next year- I'd definetely be back.
Want to give a special thanks to all the marshals and people who did the water stations. it must have been horrible, but thank you.
In short: Good organisation, friendly race, enjoyed very much despite weather In full: Very friendly crowd and marshalls, thoroughly enjoyed despite awful weather conditions. Muddy car park made things difficult. Definitely would do it again! Date of review: December 2, 2007
In short: Well organised, good course, great support, Very wet!!, PB, overall I 'd recommend this event to runners of all abilities. In full: Never mind the weather, this race was well organised, good fun and the support around the course although drenched was enthusiastic. The race numbers slowly disintegrated when they got wet so perhaps need re-thinking for next year.Well done to CONAC and Larking & Gowen for the large increase in entries this year.
