In short: Thank you for yet another well organised and fun race. In full: Thanks to the marshalls who were great, as were the supporters en route. It's a shame that this conflicts with the Great South Run as I like both, but this gets my vote every time. Date of review: October 27, 2014
In short: Better than ever in 2014! In full: A great race with a fantastic atmosphere - really well organised. Only one suggestion - a chip timing mat at the start to give everyone an accurate time, especially with the increased numbers this year. Thanks to all involved. Date of review: October 27, 2014
In full: A very well organised event which despite its relativity cheap entry fee tries to put on a big show and does. It's more undulating than you expect and it's gun to chip which is a little mystifying.. Overall for the money it's an excellent 10k . If it were proper chip timing it would be nigh on perfect. Also the banner at the finish needs to actually be over the finish and actually have a clearly defined start point with mat as mentioned. Date of review: October 26, 2014
In short: My local race, always do it In full: The race was marketed very efficiently this year which meant that it was a lot busier than in previous years and it took me a while to cross the line which was significant as there is only gun to chip timing. The organisers have said that they are looking into chip to chip timing for next year and I would suggest that they talk to Torbay AC about the Torbay Regatta 10k as I am pretty sure they had chip to chip timing yet only needed to close the road seconds before the runners started.
The route is a bit boring, two loops of Fleet, but there is a reasonable amount of support. I always do it as it is close to my house and there was a really good medal this year (MUCH better than the dreary Fleet half marathon 2014 medal). It is my PB course but I've been a bit slower the last couple of years. I'll be back next year. Date of review: October 26, 2014
In short: apologies from the race director In full: Thanks for your nice comments. We will try to keep improving our race next year. For those of you who stayed to the prize giving ceremony please accept our apologies for the delays in issuing the winners with their prizes. This was due to circumstances beyond our control, our chips timing company having suffered a software failure. Date of review: October 30, 2013
