In short: HOT HOT HOT In full: It's a nice course made tough by the August sunshine. Well done to the marshalls and everyone involved. My only small criticism was the fact that you had to pick the numbers up rather than receiving them by post. Date of review: August 5, 2007
In short: Good race, interesting ciruit and well organised. Very hot weather this year made it very challenging. In full: This is a race with great PB potential in the right weather conditions. Far too hot this year and with a 11am start this made the race incredibly difficult. An earlier start would be good. Will be back next year! Date of review: August 5, 2007
In short: Loved the Pirates and the DJ - they worked hard to make it fun In full: The race was tough due to the very hot day. The marshalls were very competitive. I loved the pirates and the Disco. As I do not have a sports bag I was delighted to receive this at the end instead of a medal!!! brilliant no need to log everything around in my old Marks and Sparks Bag anymore!

In short: I ran this race three times before becoming a club member. Now another fours on it's still one of my favourites. As far as scenery goes unbeatable at 7 in the morning! Date of review: August 12, 2006
In short: Great race well organised, Thought walk to start no problem ony 400 yards from the club house. Pretty hot day for it though. Marshalls were fantastic, very supportive. Got a skull cap as spot prize fantastic! and a shoe bag as mometowith arunni Date of review: August 7, 2006
In short: A good 5 miler for a first timer with encouraging marshalls In full: The lack of atmosphere wasn't helped by the fact that the start was a distance away from the race headquarters. The marshalls were excellent and encouraging, as was the friendly runner who kept me going for the whole cicuit. Date of review: August 7, 2006
In short: Good race well organised. In full: Very good race over a slightly undulating to flat course. Doesn't make it a pure speed course due to the time of year and time of race. The race H/Q was excellent and kept the family well entertained while I was pounding the tarmac. I thought that the organisation was good. The goody bag - in my case a pair of Thorlos made the race gool VFM. Date of review: August 7, 2006
In short: Fairly flat course. A nice run. In full: Hot weather made for difficult conditions. Why don't summer races start earlier in the Day. I know that they want to make these 'family' events, and so want to give people a chance to get up a bit later on a Sunday, but at this time of year, you risk it being very hot (as it was yesterday).
9.30 or 10.00 start would be been better.
Will be back next year, as long as it's a cooler day!!!! Date of review: August 7, 2006
In short: Good race, well organised In full: Good race, although given the temperature another water station would have been good. Perhaps an earlier start time next year? Great marshalls and well organised. Will be back next year Date of review: August 7, 2006
