In short: The weather didn't spoil a good workout! In full: second time doing this race so i was prepared for the hill at 5-6k. Quit enjoyable, well done to the marshall - agree with the comment about having sides to the tents...might have keep us a bit dry pre and post race. Not one for a PB (due to the hill)...but an enjoyable run! Date of review: February 28, 2010
In short: Wel organised. End was a bit wet (huge uddles and muddy) but it had rained a lot 8-9am. My first 10k and thought it was efficiently organised; we were just unlucky with weather. Date of review: February 28, 2010
In short: Mainly road/pavements with light traffic. Long downhill at 3km and long uphill at 5km reduces PB potential. In full: Second time of running this race. Course was improved to avoid running on the common for the last 1km (which gets very muddy and waterlogged). Good number of marshals but it would have been nice for organisers to have learned that an open sided gazebo with a plastic sheet covering some of the ground is not sufficient for baggage storage when it's pouring down with rain!

In full: Not well prepared for bad weather. Only a few gazebos for shelter and nowhere dry to store bags/clothes. Route isn't bad - through suburban streets - but not that stunning either. Killer hill at 5km Date of review: February 28, 2010
In short: Great run in horrible weather In full: Good course and Marshalls were great in the wet weather especially the man at 8km who really spurred the runners on for the last 10mins-thank you! Although looking like a drowned rat I ran a PB, the hill at 5km just needs a bit of digging in and then it's flat till the end!
