In short: Well organised and great atmosphere. In full: There always seem to be problems at the start, moans about 'fun runners/walkers' etc. with the large events. The GSR seems to have this all in hand. A great event that I last ran 3 years ago and intend to do so again. Date of review: October 10, 2005
In short: Very well organised event - Good atmosphere, good marshalling, plenty of water - well done! In full: What a contrast to the Great North Run!! It is hard to believe that they are 'organised' by the same group!! The wave start was a huge success ensuring that at no time did I feel 'hemmed in' as was the case in Newcastle both before the start & during the run itself. I would agree with previous comments regarding the mile markers being difficult to spot but this is a small criticism which could be easily remedied next year. In summary a very enjoyable event for myself as a runner & my family as spectators who had the opportunity to see me at the start, 6 miles & approaching the finish.
PS.Thank you to Jo from the Brighton area who I ran with for the first 4 miles - sadly I couldn't keep up with you on the day but good luck for your forthcoming Marathon!
