In short: Wish the wind machine had been turned off!! In full: Overall the atmosphere and organisation couldn't be faulted, the weather was cold and windy but on the plus side it wasn't raining,the course was well set out and marshalls very encouraging and friendly, the potaloos were fine a small queue but no real problem, the grass finish did not help my knee but that is the only adverse comment I could have about the race.

In short: Like running it hitlers gestapo camp! In full: Where to begin?
Got my number and pre race INSTRUCTIONS a few weeks ago. A very KURT letter , with so many instructions! No iPods / head phones! What a joke! A people where checking you where not wearing them! Well they never caught me, I had mine on under my buff! So nernernernerner! Kurt marshals, no atmosphere , very clicky and sterile. NEVER AGAIN!
I need to run to music , and asking people not to it total out of order! People where whirring there head phones under there hats, this caused no danger, we don't need nannying , we are adults !
Nice medal thats all it had going for it.
No chip timing which I find really naff! Date of review: December 2, 2012
In short: A firm favourite. TRAC to be congratulated again for an excellent package. In full: Great organisation, great marshals who are focussed on the job but have time to offer welcome encouragement too. This is one of the highlights of the racing year. Well done Thanet, you even delivered on the weather this year - cold, a bit windy in parts but clear and bright - excellent running weather. Well done all and thank you.

In short: Enjoyable race with some pretty sea views. In full: Very well organised as always. Enjoyed running along the coast. Running out and back - then out and back in the opposite direction (ish) - ensures lots of support at the start/finish area. Lovely shirt at the end. Date of review: March 25, 2012
