In short: One of the best 10Ks around In full: A great race but thought the course was a bit more hilly than in previous years. My Sports Tracker measured the race to be 10.25KM. Date of review: April 20, 2008
In short: A great finish for an enjoyable race. In full: As already mentioned, there were a few minor gripes over the km markers, water station and the start but overall it was a well organised race. The marshalls were very supportive and it was great running into Pride Park at the finish (even though I detest DCFC!). Also, I really liked the t-shirts which were of good quality.

In short: Great run, but watering hole a let-down! In full: 2nd time doing the Derby 10k, and enjoyed it thoroughly! Was disappointed in the water facilities - a small plastic cup with a couple of mouthfuls, which consuming whilst running is hard - would have preferred a bottle. Didn't see many KM markers, but that wasn't really an issue for me. Would definitely recommend. Date of review: May 3, 2007
In short: Great 2nd 10k In full: This was the second 10k I've done and god was it an improvement. Great route, nice and flat but not boring. Great organisation except I must say up to about 5 k I didn't see hardly any markers and I'm sure the 5k one wasn't right as 6 only seemed round the corner? Running into pride park was great as a rams fan and my family there and had loads of energy left so bombed it to the finish line still feeling quite fresh. T-shirt nice and I got a free massage at the end. Will def be doing this next year! Date of review: May 1, 2007
In short: Great race - good for PBs - well organised In full: Well organised (apart from long queue to get in car park). Lots of support and excellent marshalls. Did a PB too by nearly 3 mins so well chuffed !
In short: Great organisation & marshalling, lots of encouragement In full: 3rd year I've done this and it just gets better. Excellent organisation and marshalling, cracking finish too. Shame about the KM Markers. My missus spotted them but I didn't! Got a PB so not unhappy, just need to get my pacing right so i can go even quicker! Date of review: May 1, 2007
