In short: Will stay on my race calendar In full: Although its a 2 lapper which detracts slightly, its a good route through the country. Generally pretty quick though the hill back up to the showground where the race starts and finishes is a challenge, especially the second time at about 12 miles. Well organised and great support on the run from marshalls. Good finish as well where there was a good crowd. Date of review: December 1, 2008
In short: Fantastic race In full: My 19th race this year and my best half marathon time.Marshalls were excellent so were the suppporters. All the cars that passed me did so slowly.Can't wait for next year. One question.....what goody bag??? Date of review: December 1, 2008
In short: Nice enough route, well marshalled In full: Nice way to spend a Sunday morning. Route was surprisingly rural, with the marshals doing a fine job of cheering everyone on in the absence of any real crowd outside the showground. Good decision to delay to get traffic in, and Louis Theroux was there - if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me! Date of review: November 30, 2008
In short: A fine race for a fine City... In full: this two lapper with a hill (for us norfolk folk, it's a big hill OK! - if you are from wales or the peaks then it's a minor undulation...) the goody bag was great - environmental joy - contents were a bit dodgy, but 10 out of 10 for the non plastic bag! hopefully for the 25th year in 2009, there will be lots of great stuff in it. T shirt was fantastic - must be the best race T ever!! sets a standard for others, but then hey, I was no 2696, it has to be a good show! get there early next year, and don't cock the start up, you have to remember, things go a bit slower in Norfolk!!!
well done all involved, overall great race and looking forward to next year... Date of review: November 30, 2008
In short: Flat-ish (hilly for Norfolk!), two lap village and country lane jaunt. Definite PB potential, plenty of marshalls, though car parking delayed the start. Overall, Recommened! Date of review: November 30, 2008
In short: The race itself was good but the trafffic queues were a nightmare. In full: Weather was good for running and the atmosphere was excellent. Goody bag was poor but the t-shirt was excellent. Its a shame they can't make the run traffic free as cars were trying to push past runners on very narrow roads. Overall I did enjoy the event and will be back next year.
