In short: Gets better everytime In full: This was my second go at this one, and though I was slower this time (my fault), the organisation was excellent. The big crowd at the end really spur you onto a strong finish. Date of review: March 30, 2008
In short: A great race and plenty of potential for PB's! In full: This was a great race! Nice route, great atmosphere, nice weather and excellent PB potential - I managed to knock three minutes off my PB!
The zig zag uphill path in the middle of the race was the only I could fault this race for but that is only a minor gripe! Date of review: April 23, 2007
In short: Sometimes tedious but good PB course In full: As I live in Bournemouth it is nice to leave home at 9 am for a 9.30 start. Makes a change from all the travelling. I find it difficult to keep going when the first 5 k are stretched out ahead of you and started too slowly but felt really good at the end. The "hill" got a bit crowded so you could run up it even if you wanted too.A bit more training and I might even get under the 1 hour mark. Date of review: April 2, 2007
In short: A nice big friendly event In full: A nice friendly event with the start and finnish lines close to each other and something for spectators to be watching for most of the time. With the town centre nearby it also makes for a decent day out as well. The course was fairly easy being mostly flat with just the challenging zig-zag path up to the cliff top to break the pace caatch the unwary. Two water stations and Kilometre markers every km were welcome and the marshals were plentiful but unobtrusive. A very nice experience. Date of review: April 2, 2007
In short: My first ever race and it was great. The zig-zag was hard but great marshal at the top telling us how well we had done so worth the effort. Whetted my appetite for more races. Date of review: April 2, 2007
