In short: Enjoyable and well organised with PB potential In full: My first time at Fleet, and would return in future. The course is a little up and down, but nothing significant until the end of each lap, when you are hit by a nasty little hill to finish with. I managed to take 43 seconds off my PB despite the wet conditions, so I was chuffed. Date of review: October 27, 2008
In short: A little drizzle, but a good morning's work(!) In full: Fleet is a good little course - mainly club runners so chances are will be a quick pace set, had to consciously slow down soon after setting off.
It's not the most exciting to run and i'll need to rememember that the course is undulating outside of the town centre. It's that element that probably restricts the opportunity to set a PB.
Organisation is top notch. Traffic is stopped for the start and partially restricted over the rest of the course and, I am pleased to give a big thumbs up for the lack of waiting around and starting bang on time.
Glad to have done it and may be back again... Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: Wet & Fun In full: Well organised race with good marshalling and accurate km markers. I went off way too fast for the first lap, but still came in at 46:36, my 2nd fastest ever 10k. Certainly not a flat course, but nothing that could be called a proper hill. Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: Great small race, really well-organised In full: Nice undulating route, with some of the most enthusiastic marshals I've seen - especially impressive considering it was raining. I hope there were enough medals left for them at the end! Date of review: October 26, 2008
