In short: NIce day for it - miles 4-6 were pretty tough mentally - prefer races where there isn't quite as much tarmac pounding! Good overall though. THe hills on this course account for about 90 secs vs a completely flat course. Date of review: November 15, 2009
In short: The hills don't get any easier! In full: Mile markers were unexpected, and a "500m to go" or similar sign would have helped at the finish as it's hard to know how much further you have to go! Excellent organisation although signs on the desks for chips and then T-shirts would have been better placed on the wall as no-one could see them! This is my second time and I'd do it again - the weather helped too! Oh and I'm a plodder, got round in just under and hour. Date of review: November 15, 2009
In short: Ran a PB in my local race so can't grumble at that! In full: First 2/3 of race fairly quick - ensure you have some juice left in the tank for the latter part! A fairly tough 10K course overall and weather was perfect today for running. Date of review: November 15, 2009
In short: Don't underestimate the uphill finish....anyone know of any downhill 10KM finishes ? In full: Knocked over a minute off my personal best, but only previously run 3 before, Sheffield twice and Clumber Park.
Ran the first 3 miles in 22 minutes and finished in just of 48 minutes....th hills didn't help but fitness levels could have been better. Date of review: November 15, 2009
