In short: My First Half and makes we want more :-) In full: The organisation was very good (Especially for a Club WELL DONE Knavesmire Harriers), and the marshalls need a special mention as they GREAT, lots of encouraging the runners all the way round. Even crossing the line it was organisation at its best, and a good goodie bag, even a choice of colour of Sweat Shirt!!!
Once well done to Knavesmire Harriers and all involved.

In short: Fabulous race on my doorstep - I wish there were more In full: I totally agree with everything the others have said about this event. My only gripe is that there were too many people hemmed into such a short space on the start line. I do not see why the organisers could not move the times further apart to reflect the increased numbers. I spent over five minutes in a closter phobic situation worse than sardines in a can. People that should have been further back had put themselves forward and quite a few people had to start outside of the pens and then dive in at the last minute to go over the chip timing mat which was dangerous. I think next year Knavemire should spread the distances out more.
Saying all that... fab race and I really enjoyed every other bit of it. Date of review: January 27, 2010
