In short: Lovely race, superbly organised and top value In full: Excellent value & organisation. Great to have a warm, dry hall at the start to wait around and fantastic to get your t shirt at the start and more importantly in the size you ordered (its a first!) so well done for that. Also parking right next to the venue. Its a PB potential one this, which i would have got if it wasnt for the horrendous headwind on the way out. Will definately do next year as loved everything about it. Date of review: March 29, 2011

In short: Very friendly atmosphere and well organized race. Hard to believe it was the first running of the event. In full: Excellent value. Good teeshirt, medal & goodybag and plenty of friendly marshalls. Great flat course, personal best potential especially if wind blows the other way! Felt sorry for the pannier-laden first aid cyclists battling into the gale along the coast! Good organization and plenty of changing/toilet facilities in the school. Very good communications by email beforehand and nice to have result texted to me within an hour of finishing. Only 15 minutes from home so will definitely be back. The finishing corner felt a little cramped so would be nice to have a straighter run-in if I have any energy left for a sprint next time. Date of review: February 8, 2011
In short: Well organised, good value flat race with chip timing In full: Good facilities in the school... ie lots of toilets. Well organised. Good medal. Good T-shirt. Good goody bag. Lots of marshals. Went off without a hitch. Good atmosphere.
Shame about final corner to finish & a few morose marshals but it didn't spoil the event in anyway.
In short: Value for money In full: Well organised, well marshalled, top value, Down side on the day was it was very windy (gales force) but Mother Nature is Mother Nature that’s part of a runners life. They really made an effort to take care of the runners needs hopefully they maintain this high standard in future years,
In short: a1 race In full: went there for a pb but when we got onto the coast road that idea went out the window!!it was so hard into the wind but when we reached 5 k it was so nice. very well organised great marshalling and thankyou to all the volunteers Date of review: February 7, 2011
