In short: Public Health Warning. This course is not flat. In full: Garmin measured as 900ft of descent and 990ft of ascent, this course was not just very undulating, it was uphill. Putting that aside, I loved the venue, the organisation was great, and the atmosphere amongst the runners was superb. I felt slightly miffed, as I'd travelled a long way to the event in the vain hope of a PB on a fast course, but walking off at the end having failed, I knew my body had been given one hell of a workout, the benefits of which will undoubtedly carry over to my next PB attempt.
In short: Lovely race - deserves a bigger turnout. In full: Om a Bank Holiday Sunday with lots of attractive races, we ended up at this one because of the civilised start time and the inexpensive fun run for the children. Nice friendly well-organised event with the main race on pleasant little country roads. Significantly undulating without any individual killer hills. My one whinge is that I felt I deserved a medal at the end rather than just a cup of water ;o) Date of review: May 7, 2007
