In short: It was brill... In full: But only my second race, so probably can not give as good as review as the more experienced. Did find the start a bit conjestive, which did cost me a couple of minutes. Date of review: May 13, 2007
In short: Well organised, great day out. Hope the event is on next year. In full: A well organised race on closed roads, starting and finishing in the Walks. The support around the course helped create a great atmosphere. Only complaints where the course was narrow in places and starter could not be heard from where I started.
Very sad news that about the death of Duncan Gooderson, my sincere condolences to his family and friends.
In short: Great day. Two laps round the town center made the atmosphere as people turned out spectate. Big entry (1500) also helps atmosphere. Great goody bag at the end. Agree with the comment about access to water at the end. Date of review: June 3, 2006

In short: An well-organised event which was fun to take part in. In full: Agree with plaudits and niggles. Would just like to mention how good the website was in terms of information. Date of review: June 1, 2006
In short: Great race for experienced runners and beginners alike In full: Overall an excellent race - nice to be able to run on closed roads, with plenty of local support and lots of other runners around you making for a great atmosphere. A few minor niggles but nothing that can't be easily sorted for next time. Km markers and the grass start/finish have been mentioned; it would also be helpful to separate finishers and second-lappers much earlier than 100m, and/or have a lead bike to clear the way for the leaders - the winning runner had to fight his way through the last km. 5k split times (in results) confusing as they were at around 5.5k.

In short: Lived up to it's a name - a great race! In full: Firstly, my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Duncan Gooderson. I hope the race returns next year in tribute to him.
Thank you to the organisers for a fantastic race which I really enjoyed and really puts King's Lynn on the map. A great goody bag containing a superb medal and decent t-shirt. Well marshalled and excellent organisation.
I would like to suggest two areas for improvement: the start area was quite narrow, and was hard to get any speed during that first KM. Also it would be good to have KM markers at eye height and not as metal signs, as some of them got knocked over or I couldn't see them due to the other runners. But these are very minor niggles, all in all a great race, well done to the organisers. Hope to see you there next year!
In short: Great fast race will definately do it again next year In full: Very quick race as proved by the winning time of under 30mins! lovely and flat with just a few bottle necks that slowed you down a little if you were mid pack near the beginning. Keep the wheelchair racers of the grass next year and it wil be pretty perfect. Such a shame that one competitor should die. Teriibly sad. Date of review: May 31, 2006
