In short: Good overall race In full: Weather was good. Start was a little disappointing and the "building site" start was a little unnerving. Ran this last year and enjoyed - so couldn't have been too bad to want to do it again. Some hills but nothing to phase even a beginner. Marshalls excellent - and water station along route. Soup and hotdogs at finish. A good start to new year. Date of review: January 8, 2006
In short: Great start for new year In full: Biased view here as I got a PB breaking the sub 50 barrier for the first time! Nice scenery, some hills to challenge but mostly flat. A little busy at the start but all in all a great day out! I'd recommend this one! Date of review: January 8, 2006
In short: Good race, well marshalled. I was a bit disappointed at the car parking. In full: I turned up early to ensure car parking to see a sign saying 'school car park full' outside a different car park.
I was therefore disappointed to find, after a leisurely half-mile walk to the school, that the school car park was almost empty!!!
In short: A scenic way to start the new year. The start could be improved with a simple 'Start' flag / line to avoid the late set off and need to be bunched back. Overall: very enjoyable Date of review: January 10, 2005
