In short: Well organised and scenic route. In full: I thoroughly enjoyed this event. It is well organised and the route is scenic. Generally flat with PB potential. I will definitely run it again. Date of review: December 27, 2009
In short: Great PB potential but chip timing next year please! In full: Congratulations to the organisers for actually holding the race and for their excellent organisation on the day.
This course has real PB potential as it is pretty flat, run on good road surfaces with its share of downhills. My only gripe is that with 900 runners taking part the only people with an accurate time are the elite runners who started right at the front. Yes we can all time ourselves but that isn't a real PB, so chip timing next year please. With chip timing this race will grow and grow. Date of review: December 27, 2009
In short: Well organised, friendly, scenic - what more could you ask for? In full: After the dreadful recent weather, well done to all concerned for getting the race on. The course was in good condition and the 'Plan B' parking arrangements worked fine. And a new PB - very excited!! Well done to all concerned, great organisation, friendly and plentiful marshalling and the beautiful Ribble Valley as well. See you next year! Date of review: December 27, 2009
In short: Well done to Blackburn for getting the race on! In full: Given the conditions this week it's amazing that Blackburn Harriers managed to get this event on, but thanks to smooth organisation and people being sensible and parking away from the route it went ahead. Not sure why this race is fast, as there's certainly a few hills, but maybe the downs more than make up for them! Anyway - I'm a happy boy with a PB - only slight downside is the high standard of runners means I'll still be way down the field!! Date of review: December 27, 2009
