In short: Good crowd. Shame about delayed start due to lack of forsight. In full: Overall an enjoyable race. Start delayed by over 20mins due to poor organisation re last minute entries. Girl at 8/9 miles with jelly babies (lovely), 2 ladies strolling side by side blocking pavement at 12 miles (not so lovely). Date of review: March 15, 2008
In short: Friendly race and well organised onece it had started In full: Good course and very well marshalled. Good and friendly crowds and a good-sized field. The organisers were overcome by the numbers at the start though. 15 minute delay and really long queues for the bag drop. Date of review: March 15, 2008
In short: Good prep for FLM In full: Got a PB by over a minute.
Seemed to be down hill most of the way but seeing as it is a loop this is hard to work out. Other than a hill just before the end the uphill parts are very easy on the legs. Looked around for a goodie bag at the end but the cupboard was bare - surely someone could get in touch with some local sponsors and rustle up a few bits! Date of review: March 12, 2008
In short: Pb potential, about as much as you can say In full: Nice to have some chip timing. Very quick opening 3 miles. Shame about delayed start and pointless walk behind band for 10 mins. Date of review: March 11, 2008
In short: Good run In full: Good course, but justed wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped me at 12.5 miles when I fell, collapsed and hit my head. Thank you for all your concern and waiting with me until the paramedics arrived. Not a nice experience. I ended up at Queens & was told my body shut down because i had an infection & where I hit my head I have bruising on the brain. Not sure if it has put me off running yet as have been find in other h/m's. Will rest for a while though. Thanks again. Date of review: March 11, 2008
