In short: Good friendly atmosphere. In full: Pace maker for 50 minute pace was hallucinating a bit! I finished in about 47 minutes and he was still with me at the 9km mark.
Not sure about the total distance, the markers up to about 7km appeared accurate accorting to my Garmin but total distance came in at 10km and 250 meters, it made my sprint finish a little longer that I would have liked!
Goody bag was great and plenty for my little boy to do whilst he was waiting with him mum.
Get there early though, all traffic from all directions was funneled down to 1 lane, very odd and slow. Date of review: September 10, 2009
In short: Well organised and good fun! In full: Great 10k race with a couple of mildly challenging hills. Scenery is dull but the atmosphere is great and the goodie bags are fab. Average course for a PB. Date of review: September 1, 2009
In short: Had a brilliant race, would deffo do it again In full: My first race and I thought it was really good and well organised. Gonna put in for next year. The scenery is a bit dull but you cant have everything i suppose Date of review: July 8, 2009
In short: Parking situation was poor, everything else was great In full: Enjoyable race and will definitely do it next year. Donn't know what happened with the parking this year as previous years I personally have had no problem. Date of review: July 7, 2009
In short: Harder than expected In full: Very well organised race despite the difficulties in getting in Bluewater and parking. Worth coming well in advance, although the 8.30 start may make this a little difficult. Very long uphill towards to middle of the course, made harder by the heat. Best goodie bag I've had so far!

In short: Getting in to Bluewater car parks was a nightmare- I made the start with 5 minutes to spare! In full: Why o why do slower runners/walkers insist on starting near the front of the field in these larger races??? I passed people walking after 100 metres! The course was not to bad and the finish was fine. 10 out of ten for the goodie bag.1 out of ten for the parking! Date of review: June 17, 2009
In short: Nice one. In full: bargain !t-shirt, goody bag and medal. Free lucozade stuff. Well organised. Undulating course, pace maker went off like a demented hare and was never seen again, and a smell of vomit at the finish but these were not the organisers fault. Date of review: June 17, 2009
