In short: Great race in general In full: Why oh why, do some people insist on going with the faster runners and then walk at 2km??? My friend and I put down an accurate time (in the white A zone) and then within a km started overtaking people from the orange zone walking!!! So annoying and downright rude in my opinion. Apart from that, excellent organisation, great course and lovely weather! We will be back in 2009. Date of review: July 20, 2008
In short: Fun day out and enjoyable run In full: Good start, long queues for loos though, great atmosphere. AND - ran out of Large t-shirts but have been promised that they will send one on!!! AT last NOVA acknowledge the 'bigger boned' runner (I'm not obsessed by t-shirts - I run races and they never fit). Thanks NOVA - at last. Date of review: July 20, 2008
In short: Great race. Improved on last year In full: Well organised. Friendly marshals. Not enough loos, which meant we missed our start, but was able to go out with a later wave.
The event was well attended and the course felt a bit crowded at times. A lot of pushing a shoving in places, especially around the water stations. Thanks very much to the lady who stopped dead by the water station and nearly sent me flying!!!!
All that aside I really enjoyed this race and will definitely be back next year. Date of review: July 20, 2008
In short: a few more loos please! In full: Enjoyed today, had an ok race but missed my start as I was in the queue for the loos! Goodie bag ok and a bit of squash in the home straight. Date of review: July 20, 2008
In short: More Loos Please! In full: The organisation was worse that last year. As there were so many complaints about the loo queues last year I thought there would be more portaloos, not less. I had to queue for 30 mins - and I had got there early. There were too many people, but it would not have seemed so bad if they had been in the right wave. Other than that a great event - in a great location. I am pleased with my PB! Date of review: July 20, 2008
In short: Well organised and enjoyable In full: I thought this was really well organised given the huge numbers of runners - the wave start meant the start was a lot calmer than I'd expected. Friendly, knowledgeable marshalls and good weather meant an enjoyable race, and despite the odd rude runner shoving into me, I still managed a PB so I'm very happy! Date of review: July 20, 2008
