In short: Second year running and I love this race!!!! In full: Its very well organized and the course is suitable for athletes of all levels. Plus it is for charity, so if you think its abit pricey, think of the good its doing. T-Shirt much nicer this year than last, more space to leave bags and several check in places. Overall improvement on last year and well worth doing.........Will definetly be doing it again next year!!! Date of review: June 22, 2008
In short: Excellent race for everyone from new to old. Great t-shirt as well. In full: good idea to split the runners up which in my mind worked a treat, loads of supporters and marshalls with plenty of water stations. cant fault anything about it Date of review: June 22, 2008
In short: Definitely a good one if you're a beginner In full: Fantastic cause, race itself too crowded for my taste - started too far back and spent more less the whole race dodging people walking, quite tricky because the course is narrow in places. No chance of a PB and was disappointed because I'd actually trained for this one. Distance markers not very clear. Again, being far back meant no t-shirts left in my size when I finished, and having to wait 25 mins to reclaim my bag.
But lots of plusses - great music at 3 different stages which was very motivating, fab generous support from bystanders, drink stations at exactly the right places. And the course itself was nicely undulating. Really great actually running through the city and even the Meanwood Road bit I thought was ok because it was motivating to see people coming back the other way, going faster than me!

In short: Fantastic atmosphere, great organisation! In full: Great run, got a PB, fantastic organisation and the weather managed to hold. some surprising little inclines but there were descents to help. Fantastic atmosphere what a great legacy! Date of review: June 22, 2008
In short: Well organised, great atmos and a fitting tribute to an inspirational woman In full: As in the summary - the only gripe being that the distance of the run was measured by most people to be around the 10.25km mark which will have frustrated some who were chasing pb's. However, I wouldn't want to be too fussy after such a well organised, atmospheric and beginner-friendly race. Date of review: June 22, 2008
