In short: Fab race In full: Another well organised run with a great amount of thought and planning having gone into the event. Great entertainment en route and the t shirt and goody bag are the best.

Will be back next year Date of review: February 10, 2013
In short: Great Value for money In full: Cracking day,were do i start. Marshalls and volenters were amazing and deserve a huge pat on the back for the help guidence and encouragment during the race. Goody bag was best ive had along with a great t-shirt. Only downside i could say an it is a small one mayby a few more buses to shuttle people across to sart line. Will be back next year thou. Keep up the good work.
In short: The most organised race out of the 230 I have done In full: Wow! Adrian (the organiser) kept us entertained on Facebook for several months in the build up to the race. The organisation, volunteers, technical running shirt, humour, medal, goody bag, bands & Elvis singing on route along the coastline and 2,500 runners make this the UKs number 1 Date of review: February 10, 2013
In short: Great race with a combination of great banter and a fast course In full: The pre-race organisation for this was excellent with a great website, detailed emails and regular facebook updates. It was a nice touch to email at 6.40am to confirm that the weather was ok! It was a shame that the start was delayed, but at least we were inside. Great atmosphere around the course. Personally I would prefer a more central start/finish so that supporters can both drop/ collect runners and watch the middle bit of the race (similar to the route taken by the AgeUK organisers last spring), but I understand that with 2500 runners it would be hard to organise and there would be a loss of facilities. The field size is spot on for this race- not too busy that you can't move, but plenty of company running round. I think if it got any bigger it would be helpful to have more groups at the beginning (i.e. sub 40, 40-50, 50-60, 60+) as I know from other races I've done that can help ease the congestion at the beginning.
