In short: Excellent race - great route. In full: Great route with good mix of road running, grass, tracks, etc. Quite a few small hills to give you a good test (most in the second half !). Friendly atmosphere, well marshalled (I do not believe I have ever seen so many at a 10K), nice mug at finish. Date of review: June 18, 2007
In short: hot, pretty and unfortunately, extremely painful! In full: can I just say a big thank you to all the support I got from overtaking runners as my back went big time at 8km. A right royal pain, for more than one reason as I was on for a PB, but it was not meant to be!
Thank you very much to everyone asking if I was ok and needed any help and thank you Mr Paramedic for the ice pack and the people cheering me on as I hobbled over the line (i refused to give up!!)
One visit to hospital later and my pelvis has twisted out of alignment and the muscles around my sacro-iliac joint are in spasm.
no running for me for a few weeks (there goes the New Forest 10 - bah!!!)
I'll be back next year though for my 3rd mug! Date of review: June 18, 2007
