In short: A fantastic race for the seasoned pro, the first-timer, or the runner who is getting back his former fitness! In full: I did this race about 10 years ago, and don't know how I haven't done it since!
It's a very user-friendly course, with a seemingly equal share of steepish downhills, steepish uphills, and gently undulating or level roads.
Everyone was friendly, runners and officials/marshall alike.
And the finish on the running track is an added bonus, a great welcome awaits all the runners!
I will definitely be returning next year!
And one last word, the t-shirts were brill (gold text on a white background). Something to wear with pride!
In short: a brilliant race In full: This is the 4th time I've ran this one and it has been briliant each time, thanks to all concerned for you work and shouts of encouragments Date of review: April 13, 2008
In short: a good run - car parking a problem though! In full: They need to sort out the car parking. Stewards sort it initially but then disappear, so you end up getting blocked in for ages afterwards. Date of review: April 13, 2008
In full: I really enjoyed this race. Thought the hills were just right. Weather turned out to be perfect. I agree with the comments about the slower runners and cars leaving the car park. Felt really sorry for these runners. I'm sure it could have been better arranged. Will defo be doing it again. Thank you Bolton Harriers. Date of review: April 13, 2008
In short: Decent enough race In full: Don't like the 9am start but other than that no problems. Well organised with a nice finish. Good race for beginners as only a few little ups and downs. Cheers Bolton. Date of review: April 13, 2008
