In short: Not the best but a quick race on a flat surface In full: There was a delayed start with no explanation which was a bit frustrating. There were not enough toilet facilities. The timing and positioning at the end of the race was all over the place and not accurately recorded. The water stations were pretty poorly organised. Date of review: November 16, 2004
In short: welcoming, friendly, well organised and fast! In full: P.B for me! Shame full results still not available on website. The system of recording finishers numbers/time manually at the end was also slow and very far from accurate. This made for a confused end to an otherwise good fast race.

In short: Good fast race with great potential for a pb as long as you can get out quickly and past the slower runners at the start In full: Loved the atmosphere. Nice to see the junior mile run to let the kids join in on the day.
Decent start time (11am) gave everyone ample opportunity to make it to the race.
Lack of loos caused a delay to the start, and collection of goodie bags was a little slow but these were minor problems and did not affect a good morning and race. Date of review: November 10, 2004
In short: Nice course, nice people, needed toilets. In full: This was a really nice race and had lots of pb potential. The laps aren't an overly bad idea, as the park is beautiful, but I felt really bad for those superfast runners that lapped me and the rest of the pack. The winners had to fight their way through the entire running field during their first large lap to make the finish. Date of review: November 9, 2004
