In full: I actually managed to run a PB here which was surprising given the short sharp hills and lack of training! Well organised. The course did involve a lot of pavements which was a bit of a downer but nice touch with the finish balloon and race clock at the finish. I'll be back next year, especially when it's for such a good cause! Date of review: April 5, 2009
In full: A great race on a beatuiful day. Very well organised and a surprising chance for a PB. The hills were short and sharp with long gradual downhills. Compared to a number of other races this seems a bargain. I would pay more for such a good cause. I agree more toilets would nbe a bonus. I'll be back. Date of review: April 5, 2009
In short: Warm and twisty. In full: Excellent family run with a happy atmosphere attracting a large field and all for a great cause; to rasie money for the local hospital.
Organisation was excellent, with the huge, inflatable finishing arch and a big, clear read-out for the runners finishing times. Only a couple of gripes, the website was misleading because it said that you could not enter on the day, but in fact you could, which put at least one runner off of applying on the day, so, sorry for that Dave!.. Secondly, the start area was crowded and runners should have been told to line up sooner.
All in all though, a great race in the sunshine. One for the calendar for next year. Date of review: April 5, 2009
