In short: friendly fast paced race In full: only my second race so very nervous,everybody very friendly and the Marshall's were very encouraging, i was near the back and they kept me going, overall a nice way to spend a friday evening, will do it next year. Date of review: August 22, 2008
In short: Thank you for a well organised race that suits all In full: I ran this race today for the first time. I should say I am an experienced runner having done 10 full marathons plus including the south downs way in 96'. But I have not ran for 10 years and wanted something open to everyone to get outside and to get off my treadmill (bought 6 weeks ago) and back into real running. This was well orginised, easy to find and friendly. There where runners of all abilities and suited me brilliantly. I managed a slow 30 mins (which I am happy with given my current fitness) but if I'd been a 40 min runner I would have found good support too. Fast runners got praise just the same.
Friendly race and actually is suitable for all, I was sceptical and was worried about the pace but overall a nice break back into running.
(next time I'll be at the front lol)
