In short: Well organised. Good facilities. Lovelly marshals. Challenging course. In full: Really fantastic Marshals. Well organised. Only a short queue for the loos. Challenging course but a cracking December race. Highly recommended. The storm jacket momento is a really nice touch too. Date of review: December 11, 2011
In short: Excellent Race In full: I arrived at 0840 and didn't have to queue for anything other than the toilet which was no more than a few minutes. Got my jacket, timing chip and baggage sorted with no delay. Straight into a hot shower after the race, no problems.
Didn't use the buses this year but they seemed to be running perfectly as well.
As usual, I can't fault the organisation of Bedford Harriers and they are a rival club!
Keep it up guys! Date of review: December 11, 2011
In full: First time here and really enjoyed the course. I'm not an experienced runner but didn't find it too tough. Well organised and marshalled - there were queues for chips pre-race, but they moved quickly and not much of a hardship. Date of review: December 11, 2011
In short: Excellent organisation and marshalling. In full: I used to think Bedfordshire was flat. Not any more. Hills were quite tough and the wind was strong on exposed parts of the course. I'm glad I've done it but I probably won't be back. Date of review: December 11, 2011
In short: Organisers tried hard but venue too small causing stress before start In full: Queues for everything pre race and despite arriving in, I thought, good time I felt panic for the hour before the race as I could not see me being ready. Somehow it worked but I did not have time for any sort of warm up. Course is a bit tough. Draws you into a fast start, hilly in the middle then gentle at the end. Huge queues for a cup of tea Date of review: December 11, 2011
