In short: Eggscellent race, well organised In full: Next year it might be worth while sending the numbers out in advance, as used to happen to avoid the crush in the race HQ. Also some signs to the race HQ at the Podimore Services roundabout would be a great help. Date of review: March 26, 2008
In short: Happy Easter Egg! In full: Great finishing prize, who needs another t-shirt or medal anyway? Give me chocolate everytime! Good race overall, in summary
Negatives : i) Race HQ too crowded, why can't the race numbers be sent out to reduce congestion collecting them? ii) No sign for Race HQ from east iii) No sign for where the start was, just one sign and arrow outside the HQ would help. Couldn't get to the map as it was packed in the lobby. iv) Water after finish was hard to find, table with a keg on it round the side of the HQ that was help yourself. v) The starter sounded the hooter... not to start the race, but to speak to the runners! False start all round! Positives : i) Marshals on the course were excellent ii) Prize excellent iii) Loads of car parking space iv) Great start time, no need for a 10am on Easter Monday, 11am was spot on.
