In short: I got a PB!!! In full: Pretty decent race, not too flat but the downhills mean a PB is possible. A pretty long hill from miles 4.5-6 with then a quick downhill and field section to finish on. Marshalling good, all run on the road with many people in sight all of the time.

In short: Was a good first event In full: This was my first run and only decided to run it the night before, thanks to my brother, might have backed out though if i'd seen all them hills, lol. Really enjoyed the race though and would do it again next year! Date of review: November 17, 2008

In short: Comments From Race Director - Mark In full: Thanks for the feedback I will look at the directions and have them changed for next year, I thought the map would have been enough but it is useful to know that it isn't sufficient.
Glad to see that most people had a good experience again, my apologies to the few people who didn't get water at the finish more water will be available next year. Sincere apologies to Samantha, I think the person who said run faster meant it tongue in cheek (but not very helpful), and I suspect it was my non-running mum, I will have her sent to a home. Seriously though I am sorry. Thanks to all for running and hope to see everyone next year. Date of review: November 16, 2008
In short: Well organsied, Enjoyable. Looking forward to next year. In full: This race is special to me as I am local and knew alot of people running it. Our area has a good community spirit. The weather was perfect for it. The course is a good one, it was maybe easier for me as I knew what was coming and had hill trained for it. The marshalls were good. I have to agree with other reviews that some drivers are so inconsiderate and did get rather close to runners at times. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and feel great having achieved a new PB for this distance. Date of review: November 16, 2008
