In short: VERY HOT, great marshalls & sports bag for all finishers In full: This race was made very dificult as we ran in 30 degrees at 11.00am, beautifull course with excellent marshalls and cakes!!! Date of review: August 5, 2007
In short: A nice race but could do with starting earlier - way too hot! In full: Appreciably the organisers can't control the weather(!) but a 10am start (or even slightly earlier) could have made the race much more enjoyable in my opinion. I just about took in the very pleasant route (while struggling under a strong midday sun!) and the marshalls were all excellent.
The good quality sports bag was a fantastic race memento, so much more useful than a medal.
I'd definitely do this one again next year if it had an earlier start. Date of review: August 5, 2007
In short: Great atmosphere, great race, but too hot (again) In full: Despite the heat, i really enjoyed the race. shame they can't start at 10 though. Another water station on the course would have been good, as hot weather had been predicted all week. Sports bag for all finishers a nice touch, and so much more usefull than a medal. Nice day out for spectators too.
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
