In short: A fast flat personal best course with a chilly sea breeze In full: don't be fooled by the brisk sea breeze at the beginning you soon become hot around the remaining course, I reccommend that you don't wrap up to warm! it was my third half and I found it a fast beginner friendly course, with no real inclines.

In short: Good race and well organised. Very falt and quick course.The camber on some of the roads however is a real killer especially on the second lap. Running along main road in town not best, but overall a good run. Date of review: March 8, 2005
In short: Very quick race, fast and flat, the people who called it undulating should have their descriptions removed! Minus points for start being delayed by 10 mins, otherwise a great race. Date of review: November 27, 2004
In short: A definite addition to my calendar. Organisation and atmosphere were the best. In full: Great support from the locals. More police than a home office commercial. Fantastic marshalls. This was a fantastic race - well done to the organisers.
Make the fun run before the main race - 11:00 is quite late and there's plenty of time. This would alieviate your traffic worries too (as long as the fun run doesn't use a road of course - shouldn't do - there's plenty of common on the sea front)
Anyway - well done - keep it up. Date of review: November 22, 2004
In short: Well organised, flat course, excellent PB potential In full: A well organised and marshalled event, however I agree with many comments on the car parking. I was there early, so managed to get a space, glad I wasn't running late for the start! The car parks really need signing to make things a bit easier. The course was one for fast running, not admiring the scenery, I took 3 mins off my PB, so I was very happy with it! Well done to all involved organising. Date of review: November 22, 2004
