In short: Ronseal In full: This was an unpretentious no-frills proper road race, geared towards the serious runner (county championship incorporated) to which a few slower types such as myself were able to tag along.
Well organised and marshalled with good facilities at Race HQ. Date of review: February 9, 2009
In short: Very Fast Race - Organisers did great job making sure course was safe. In full: A big thanks to the organisers who did a good job making sure the course was safe and succeeded in staging the race when so many others were cancelled this weekend. You don't run this race for the view, you run it to get a fast time - good for a PB. WIll definitely be doing it next year.
In short: Scenery dull but Marshals were good. In full: Water distribution was poor - none available on finishing race, or not ready on first lap round, Lap nature makes it a little difficult. Marshals very good and organisation was good. Facilities good at school.
In short: Good Training In full: There were a fair number of club runners which from past experience usually means the race is worth running. It might have only been 3 laps of suburbia, but I felt it was a good competitive warm up to the Brighton Half marathon in a couple of weeks. Worth doing Date of review: February 8, 2009
In short: Well done to all involved in getting this event on given the conditions this week. In full: Enjoyed this one! My fastest 10 miler in 7 years! Thanks to the West4 lady who kept me going all the way! Cheers! Date of review: February 8, 2009
In short: They promised it was a PB course, and it definitely was - I took 10 minutes off my previous 10 mile time. Not exactly exciting scenery, but well organised and lovely marshalls. Date of review: February 8, 2009
