In short: An well-organised event which was fun to take part in. In full: Agree with plaudits and niggles. Would just like to mention how good the website was in terms of information. Date of review: June 1, 2006
In short: Great race for experienced runners and beginners alike In full: Overall an excellent race - nice to be able to run on closed roads, with plenty of local support and lots of other runners around you making for a great atmosphere. A few minor niggles but nothing that can't be easily sorted for next time. Km markers and the grass start/finish have been mentioned; it would also be helpful to separate finishers and second-lappers much earlier than 100m, and/or have a lead bike to clear the way for the leaders - the winning runner had to fight his way through the last km. 5k split times (in results) confusing as they were at around 5.5k.

In short: Lived up to it's a name - a great race! In full: Firstly, my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Duncan Gooderson. I hope the race returns next year in tribute to him.
Thank you to the organisers for a fantastic race which I really enjoyed and really puts King's Lynn on the map. A great goody bag containing a superb medal and decent t-shirt. Well marshalled and excellent organisation.
I would like to suggest two areas for improvement: the start area was quite narrow, and was hard to get any speed during that first KM. Also it would be good to have KM markers at eye height and not as metal signs, as some of them got knocked over or I couldn't see them due to the other runners. But these are very minor niggles, all in all a great race, well done to the organisers. Hope to see you there next year!
In short: Great fast race will definately do it again next year In full: Very quick race as proved by the winning time of under 30mins! lovely and flat with just a few bottle necks that slowed you down a little if you were mid pack near the beginning. Keep the wheelchair racers of the grass next year and it wil be pretty perfect. Such a shame that one competitor should die. Teriibly sad. Date of review: May 31, 2006
In short: Well Organised and Presented Event In full: Very well organised, feed station was messy and start slow, maybe started to far back. Otherwise a very good event. This was my 1st event for 15 years and was well organised. Date of review: May 31, 2006

In short: A good venue for my first 10K In full: I have not taken part in any other races so I have nothing to compare it against, but, if they are all at least as good this one, I'll be very happy! Date of review: May 30, 2006
In short: Better marshalling required at junctions to prevent cheats!! In full: Need to review the start and finish areas for next year to avoid the wet, muddy finish. This would be easy enough as there is plenty of tamac walks around the park. Date of review: May 30, 2006
In short: Fantastic race, well organised with loads of crowd support In full: A real top quality race, a fabulous medal and when you found the stand a 2l bottle of water at the end!! Fast, flat course with great crowd support nearly all the way round. I really hope they do this one again as this race will grow and grow. Date of review: May 30, 2006
