In short: Special race for a very special person. In full: The huge turnout for this event was commendable, but killed off any chance of a personal best. However the atmosphere was fantastic and I will definately be back next year to support such a great charity. Date of review: June 22, 2008
In short: Good mass participation race for a great cause In full: Great big city race, good atmosphere.
Few minor gripes, not enough toilets, I didn't see any km markers before 5K, and start very congested due to people not being in time pens. But I'm probably taking it all a bit too seriously, it's for charity! Date of review: June 22, 2008

In short: Great atmosphere, some minor niggles but a fab cause. In full: A fantastic and enduring tribute to an amazing woman.There was a special feeling to this one, well organised for such a big event and lots of support along most of the route.Couldn't see any km markers so hard to judge my time, and the turning point was so narrow we had to walk through which blew any chance of a pb.I was surprised at how undulating it was, expected it to be flatter. Great bands around the course which gave a much needed lift.Didn't appreciate being covered in other peoples gatorade though and it made the road horribly sticky. BUT I will be back and as it is such a good one for first timers my husband has promised to do it with me next year...
