In short: spot on In full: So clearly a race organised by runners,everyone knows what works and thats what happens. The most cheerful and encouraging marshalls i have ever known even for the back runners like me.And the reward of a great medal at the end, all i ever want. See you next year.

In short: fantastic marshals, water stops,jelly babies,sausage buns, choc biscuits and my husband liked the shorts in front of him..not mine!! In full: Really brilliant race...4 1/2 mins taken off my pb.
In short: Best event I've been entered, loved finishing in the football ground In full: Best race day ever! Loads of parking and super organised number collection (I got number 3 but definately didn't finish third!). Start was a 20 minute slow walk from the parking, but was nice to stroll along with everyone. Start area was exceptionally well managed. Lots of space and the sound system worked well with lots of information. Course was out in to the North Lincolnshire country side and back Scunthorpe football ground, with the finish on the pitch. The volunteers and organisers did a great job on the course, water stations seemed in the right place. Best bit was having our names on the race numbers. It was very up lifting to have my name shouted out when I was struggling at 11-12 miles! finish area was well organised and efficient. Kids did the fun run and loved it, wife liked the general organisation, tea's and coffee's (with loads of biscuits) and being able to sit in the football stands instead of being stood around in a field.
We'll definitely be back next year. Date of review: May 8, 2014
