In short: Fantastic setting for a race. Thoroughly enjoyed it. In full: Can not add much more than the previous comments that the start was crazy. Either reduce the number of entrants or change the start. Other than that though was a great race. Date of review: September 30, 2008
In short: My second Ciren 10k - the start was awful - 500 ish runners crammed into a narrow lane. This needs sorting for next year. A lot of people wanted a medal - I agree. Not sure if I'll ever use the bag! Date of review: September 29, 2008
In short: very enjoyable In full: the weather made it special. good surroundings, the odd car was a challenge to pass through the tight gate, otherwise, as my first run, it was very good. Date of review: September 29, 2008
In short: Loved it! The weather helped but beautiful place. In full: Shame that there are no medals - the bag is all very well but I like medals to add to my collection to show what I have acheived - I am surprised the organisers have not paid attention to previous comments about this Date of review: September 29, 2008
In short: Bring back the old new course! In full: The course this year was actually the old, old course. Why did they revert to it? Probably to remove the "hill" from being run twice. Big mistake. The start was atrocious, but after 1k or so it was fine. More helpers needed at the finish for the drinks. Definitely worth turning up, though. Date of review: September 29, 2008
In short: Shocking organisation at the start In full: Moved the start line as to accomodate for all the gorillas and elvis style runners that wouldnt move back from the start line, terrible organisation. Date of review: September 29, 2008
In short: Very good race. In full: Only thing that let it down was the start. Any start where you get people to walk to the start and then turn round and go back the same way never works (Ask those that organised the Newark Half Marathon nit was chaos).
Special mention to the two ladies trying to give the drinks at the finish. More help needed, they work working as fast as they could. Date of review: September 28, 2008
