In short: Good race with a few hill for the challange. Nice scenery out in the countryside with the odd meander through housing estates which gives good support from the locals. Date of review: June 8, 2008
In short: Good race In full: Good well organised event, nice to run a more challenging and undulating course and even the hill at the end was ok. Goody bag was very strange, some leaflets and a water bottle, not quite sure what the point of it was, surely if giving them out then all should get the same. But well organised and very friendly marshalls and plenty of cheering along the way, see you next year. Date of review: June 18, 2007
In short: An excellent race, with a superb wine glass and goody bag to make it worth while In full: Great organisation, the last third needs to be flattened out a little bit, was on for a PB until the long sweeping hill took it's toll. the encouragment all the way around was brilliant including the unofficial water station provided by a mother and her two kids a third way round. would definate do this next year and for the forthcoming five so i can complete my wine glass dinner set, certainly makes just a medal for finishing pale into significance when you get a wine glass. Wll done Aldridge Running Club, also thanks for the Ruck sack as a goody bag, saved me a few quid. Date of review: June 12, 2007
In short: Clear that the Runnign Club had tried to involve the commuity and school and children and this created a great atmosphere on the green. In full: The start was a bit disorganised, would have been better to get everyone into target/ability time zones on the green, then walked to start in that order. The men who spent time putting up the boards to guide people, may as well not have bothered.
My husband is a triathlete so was really hoping for a medal - as triathlon events seem keen on giving brightly colour t-shirts which only get worn for gardening!
Lovely course, well marshalled, good finish area, but nothing but a bottle of water and some leaflets in the goodie bag, was a bit disappointing.
