In short: Excellent, almost flat race, good atmosphere In full: This was my first 10k & I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a first time race. Very friendly atmosphere, very busy, beautiful day (which helped), good course, well organised, fab! Date of review: May 27, 2008
In short: Fast and furious, but little atmosphere In full: I've been meaning to do this one for a long time and finally got around to it this year. Everyone tells you it's a fast, flat course but what they don't tell you is that it is boring as hell (unless you are really into motor racing) and that there are very few people lining the route to cheer you on. However, it is pretty cool to finish in the pit lane and I liked the idea of the £1 refund for the safe return of the timing chip so you could go get a drink, or slice of cake, at the end without having coins jangling in your pocket on the way round. I'll probably be back in 2009 because I'm a sucker for a PB! Date of review: May 19, 2008
In short: Silverstone/Silson Joggers- we love you! In full: My 2nd time at Silverstone and again, a great evening.Very well organised and marshalled.....a fantastic surface to run on...the experience of completing a race circuit.......parking near start/finish.......fab refreshments stall (!!)....and a T-shirt thrown in at the end...what more could you want! Well done Silson Joggers, see you next year! Date of review: May 9, 2008
In short: One of my favourites, combining motor sport and running! Never gets any easier though In full: A very well organised event by Silson. Well marhalled and administered. Liked the chip timing too. A warm night for racing though. Water was welcome after 1st lap. See you next year. Date of review: May 8, 2008
In short: Potential for a fast time In full: Well organised race, with parking close to the start/finish, and good value for money. My thanks to the organisers, marshals and volunteers. The wide start helped to avoid overcrowding and the course is ideal for a fast time, although some of the long wide straight sections seemed to add a certain mental challenge. I would agree with an earlier reviewer that one aspect to change would be the water station at half way, where it would be better if the gap for the runners were wider.
