In full: This is the second time i have done this race and this years organisation was better than last. Alot of people never had their time printed last year including myself which was annoying. I still think it would be better if it was chipped as there are alot of people doing the race and mistakes happen. Will be doing it again next year though as got a PB of 50 mins this year and really want to get a time of in the 40's. Date of review: May 12, 2009
In short: A very good beginners race. In full: Very popular 'Fun Run' with a field of almost 3500. Excellent opportunity for a quick time if you can get a decent start. Well established race that caters for runners of all abilities.
Would benefit from more accurate timing but on the whole a well organised event. Date of review: May 11, 2009
In short: penguins, cows and bumblebees In full: Fantastic atmosphere - PB for me too which was great. As a relative new comer to races (this is my 4th 10k), its the first time I've run with penguins, cows and bumblebees!! The only downside / tip for next year is that getting to the event (with the main road closed for the race) and parking are very difficult with very little guidance. Date of review: May 11, 2009
