In short: Riverside bargain In full: I didn`t receive much in the way of instructions or directions after entering (through RW) and it was a very local race with a field consisting largely of athletes from local clubs.
The route followed the river down a lovely leafy track before a mile or so on the with a bit of a hill. Then it returned to country tracks and paths with a really quick downhill section and then you rejoin the river path back.
There were plenty of water stations and the marshalls were quite encouraging. However, at the finish one was rude to my wife which spoilt our experience somewhat.
The race was inexpensive to enter but a medal was given plus a t-shirt (albeit from a previous, New Year, event.) I would consider doing this again in the future. Date of review: August 2, 2010
In short: Some great views over the Lune In full: Mostly tracks and flat with plenty of room, with a little section on a road before heading back, (bit of an incline here) although road wasn't too busy, one to do if your thinking of having a go, brilliant marshals, clapping and encouraging you on,at least 3 water stations again marshals encouraging you on, t-shirt and a medal,bargain Date of review: August 1, 2010
