In short: First 10k race, enjoyable and made me hungry for more In full: I have heard other 10ks are a lot cheaper but have no experience of this. First Marshall I asked a question to didnt have a clue so that could definitely be improved on. V busy field but i knew this before running so no complaints. Goodybag I had contained a wet wipe, half a magazine, a shopping brochure and a sweatband!? Is that normal? Local though so will be back next year fo sho Date of review: May 15, 2011
In short: too crowded, amateur marshalling for such a big race In full: First the good, great venue, better goody bag than before.
The bad - way too crowded, poor signposting for the pens and far too few toilets. The marshalls weren't aequately trained, one managed to shut the whole road down because he was talking to a girl on a bike. Another took 25 mins to allow finishers to "escape" from the inner racing circle to cross the road. Doesn't sound too bad but when you're shivering after a race it's not funny!
More signage at the start please and train your marshals, try using some runners at crucial points! Date of review: May 15, 2011
In short: Well organised and big day feel, but with price to match. In full: As I live in Bristol, I think I do this just to keep happy all the people who know I run. I prefer the smaller races and a more varied terrain. That said, it's great to see friends taking up the challenge and friendly faces in the crowd. The organisation is very good - you get what you pay for , and a good T-shirt too. Date of review: May 15, 2011
In short: My first race and was faster than I'd hoped for so v pleased! In full: Clear that Bristol has some that knock it but as a first experience of racing I loved it. Just need to find a half as the next challenge! Date of review: May 15, 2011
In short: Was I going to give a bad review after a new PB :P In full: A brilliantly organised event which was great fun to participate in :) Even at £20 this was well worth the money and PB! Date of review: May 15, 2011
In short: A cracking race, thoroughly enjoyed it. In full: My first time at the Brsitol 10k and will be back next year, turned up a bit later than planned and was unsure where to go, but was directed efficiently. Good atmosphere and goody bag. Date of review: May 15, 2011
