In short: A little drizzle, but a good morning's work(!) In full: Fleet is a good little course - mainly club runners so chances are will be a quick pace set, had to consciously slow down soon after setting off.
It's not the most exciting to run and i'll need to rememember that the course is undulating outside of the town centre. It's that element that probably restricts the opportunity to set a PB.
Organisation is top notch. Traffic is stopped for the start and partially restricted over the rest of the course and, I am pleased to give a big thumbs up for the lack of waiting around and starting bang on time.
Glad to have done it and may be back again... Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: Wet & Fun In full: Well organised race with good marshalling and accurate km markers. I went off way too fast for the first lap, but still came in at 46:36, my 2nd fastest ever 10k. Certainly not a flat course, but nothing that could be called a proper hill. Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: Great small race, really well-organised In full: Nice undulating route, with some of the most enthusiastic marshals I've seen - especially impressive considering it was raining. I hope there were enough medals left for them at the end! Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: Better and better In full: Second year running I`ve entered this race & to me it was better than last year`s. Would like to thank all of the marshals, race staff & Police & public who stood out in today`s weather, each seemed to be cheering, clapping & smiling at the right moment - many thanks. No problems at all & even a PB. Thought the chip timing was a great introduction. Thanks to Fleet & Crookham AC....may even see you in March!!! Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: always one of my favourites In full: Now with chip timing and I could identify the finish line better this year. Traffic free - thanks to all the marshals and police, etc. Excellent in every way, might benefit from a little more atmosphere. Date of review: October 26, 2008
