In short: My first ever organised race In full: For this, my first ever race, I brought the family out to help combat my nerves and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, a big step forward on a major weight loss programme Date of review: January 20, 2009
In short: A good local race... In full: I was pleased with the first Devizes 10k. It was a well-balanced course with even ups and downs and was well marshalled. Enjoyed the weather - after all a nice drop of rain and wind makes it a bit more of a challenge doesn't it? Managed to shave a minute off my pb too - although I do tend to run a lot of hilly 10k's! Thanks for the banana at the end. Overall a good value race - well done devizes!! Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: A few long hills but not too challenging In full: Organisation at the start line could have been better. We had to walk over the line before we turned round ready to race. Some people were still walking through the crowds to the back when the horn went. Was the first time the event had run though (I think) so can forgive them for this. Date of review: March 5, 2007
In short: Can't fault it In full: Not much to add that hasn't been said really...
Excellent organisation (especially for a first time race), a challenging but fun course and good facilities. Hills were testing, but the downs seemed to compensate for the ups! Once again, the standard of care and attention to detail at these small regional races puts most of the bigger ones to shame (that's aimed at you, Cardiff marathon). Date of review: March 5, 2007
In short: Excellent organisation, fabulous atmosphere, great marshalling, unfortunately nobody could do anything about the terrible weather! Still a great race even with the weather and hideous hill! Date of review: March 5, 2007
