In short: disappointed... In full: i ran it slow, but was well within the allocated time after the first lap by about 5 minutes (as mentioned on their website/letter) - however, the mile markers were gone on my second lap and direction signs also! And where were the marshalls? Won't be doing this one again...
In short: great fun race, ground is flat and makes for good pacing In full: Good warm up for dublin, grasnted mug isn't best thing to recieve when crossing the line but not really a big deal is it? Will def be for April run. Date of review: October 18, 2007
In short: well organised. beginner friendly 8 mile In full: I am glad I made the effort to go to this race. We made a weekend of it and my partner spent a fortune in the shops! There was a good mix of runners and there was good support at the end for all finishers. I will definitely be back next year. Date of review: October 18, 2007
In short: Great day for a great run In full: Good number of runners but not too many so as to make it crowded. The only bad thing is having to get up at 0430 to get there on time, but a small price to pay for a fun event. Date of review: October 17, 2007
In short: Ideal training for New York's marathon In full: Shame on all those runners who like nothing better than to write and complain over the smallest of gripes! Kingston is a flat and scenic course that provides a challenge, and is also a good training opportunity for runners with a bigger goal in mind. Its better than running on your own, the goody bag does have goodies in, and the mug was accepted with gratitude. A big thanks also to the volunteers who were excellent.
