In short: Most enjoyable suffering In full: Tough as old boots. First time I've ever had to stop in a race. 6 minutes off my PB, but I loved every minute of it. People were friendly, scenery was great. Took the family, had a great day out. can't wait to do it again. Date of review: May 13, 2005
In short: Lovely day at the zoo ruined with a 10k run!!! Not really wonderful day out for all the family. In full: It was a wondeful day out. It was hot and sunny but the hills were tough but I don't like hills at the best of times.
Disappointing time but with the ups and downs of the course I obviously need more training!!! Date of review: April 26, 2005
In short: tougher than I thought, but still a great day out In full: I concur with the others: hills were worse than I thought, and Start was too crowded. But friendly atmosphere, good weather, well-marshalled, welcome drinks, and plenty of good-natured support.
Afterwards, it's a fun day out for the family, although the lemurs were a bit sleepy this time. Previously they have been more lively but mustn't grumble. My son's doing a project on rhinos so good field work for him.
And there's even a free road train to carry tired limbs back to the entrance. Date of review: April 25, 2005
In short: Very friendly race through some nice scenery, In full: First 10K for some time so happy to plod along towards the back. Slightly congested start meant I started off slow but the undulating first half limited the amount of conversation with follow competitors !!! Definitely do it again next year - knees willing Date of review: April 25, 2005
