In short: Nice race with lots of potential for PBs In full: Down hill first mile infact quick first few. Followed by a calf strain at 34 miles :( continued even though I was on course for a PB. Ended up with a slowish time but nice course. Date of review: October 20, 2008
In short: What goes down, must come up! In full: My second year at Tiptree, and this year I knew the form. Fast and furious start, followed by a long countryside cruise and a tough but achievable uphill finish. I love hills, so this was a great race for me. I knocked over half a minute off last years time, despite carrying a knee injury. Had I not had to run within myself I would have knocked minutes off.
A special mention should go to the young lad in the Policeman outfit - quality. Great water stations every 2.5 miles, and an army of marshals.
I'll be back next year, hopefully without a wonky knee. Date of review: October 14, 2008
In short: Great organisation, course and goody bag. In full: Well done Tiptree runners for organising a great course and goody bag. Hill at 8 miles was sapping but once out of the way the final mile was flat and the crowds were enthusiastic. Will be there next year Date of review: October 13, 2008
