In short: well done reading road runners fantastic In full: I really enjoyed this run everything was perfect . a little dubious about the 200 metres finish at the end as it took me 2 mins that works out at a 10min 10K? not right . But fantastic run anyhow. Date of review: May 4, 2009
In short: Fast and Flat 10K on quiet roads, PB potential! In full: First time done course and it was good, flat with 2 slight inclines and 2 downhills, good car parking, well done to marshals - lots of them, good KM markers, i noticed at end about 48-50min finished time that the finish area was packed to to finish line - maybe that needs changing with the number taking! I am happy - i knocked 2 mins off best time for about 44mins32secs on my watch! Nice medal, bar and drink! Well done! Date of review: May 4, 2009
In short: Enjoyable day out as usual. In full: I liked the new route. The finish again needs a bit more organisation. As last year, the queue to collect medals, etc extended to before the finish line. Date of review: May 4, 2009
In short: Pleased with a new pb! In full: Pleased with a new pb of 42m 34s on a fast flat course, with only a few gentle hills. Organisation very good, and lot of support at the end. Last 400m on grass tough on the legs! Date of review: May 4, 2009
In short: A nice day out In full: A no-frills local 10K - turn up, pay a tenner, run the race. Coupled with a fete on the village green. Nice course, more scenic and rural than the previous one. Particularly appreciated the baggage tent - important for non-motorists who can't stow their gear in the boot. I'll be back next year if I can. Date of review: May 4, 2009
In short: a nice day out In full: route a bit fiddly in places (first 2km) and with with a couple of hills to keep you honest; may have been about 100m short. Pretty well organized (although start could have been better controlled - I went to the front) with the marshalls controlling some very inconsiderate motorists well. Nice feel to the event though and I'd do it again. Date of review: May 4, 2009
In short: Always good, but not as good as before In full: My 3rd run, and for a race that I love to do, I was not happy with the new course, which just squashed all the runners together for the 1st K or so, so had to pick my way around newbies for ages, killing my time, and cramped me and the runners around me at the finish line when we were funnelled into a line.
The start could have been organised a lot better, even advising us to get ourselves into time controlled sections would have helped. Date of review: May 4, 2009
