In short: Hard to concentrate at times given the beauty of Dewsburys famous landmarks In full: Taking in such historic landmarks, as legends night club, various kebab restaurants, the brilliant new Lidl superstore and Tescos at Batley, this race offers the ultimate in racing backdrops.
Additional excitement is offered from the occasional mock sports car, with huge Perspex spoilers and alloys, which may pop out from the numerous hidden side streets. Pumping out some reet tunes and ripping bass lines from their high power Argos stereos, you’ll relish the opportunity to try and avoid these beauties whilst running at speed.
In short: Really enjoyed it, although we were at the back of the field and they ran out of water and were given a used bottle which wasn't very nice. Also would have been nice to have a medium T-Shirt, guess we will have to run faster! Date of review: February 7, 2007
In short: Good for PBs - but where's the water for people over 50mins? In full: Good fast course, but uninspiring scenery! However, I was really miffed when I realised they had run out of water for the 50+ mins end of the field - I was handed a second hand bottle that had already been scuffed from being thrown down on the road... NOT nice. Those of us that run a 60 min 10k deserve the same treatment as those who are faster - we all pay the same entry fee! Date of review: February 7, 2007
In short: Very fast course In full: If you're looking for a PB - do this race. If you want a scenic course and bags of atmosphere - don't do it. Choice is as simple as that and race is either very good value or very poor value depending on your answer to those questions. Myself, I'll be back in 2008. Date of review: February 7, 2007
In short: PB race, I destroyed mine! In full: Fast course, ideal for first timers and PB chasers. Very well organised on closed roads. Only down side, thought £14 a bit steep for a 10K. Date of review: February 6, 2007
In short: Good fast flat course, disappointed that there wasn't any water left for the slower end of the race. I finished in 52 mins and it had all gone by the time I got there! Date of review: February 5, 2007
