In short: well organised, quite roads, much better than staying in to watch the tellyy In full: One small gripe and I noticed a similar comment in 2006 - the marshalls as you entered the sports ground at the end didn't indicate the way and this is about the only place it isn't obvious.

In short: Fast course PB potential. In full: The course started with a downwards hill which was great to get some speed up. But i couldnt help thinking 'Ive gotta come back up this amount of elevation at some point' and the downward hill just kept going on and on and on up to about 2.5 miles. I was preserving my energy for the dreaded return upwards and it never really happened. I think there was one steepish mound and that was it!!!! I got a new PB of 35 mins and 15 seconds but i feel i could have run faster if i knew the course.
I thought the marshalling was excellent, there were 2 or 3 marshalls on every turn. Some were encouraging, some were not. - Whatever!
The photographer caught me by surprise under the bridge on the last mile. haha.
I thought there was supposed to be a medal or something as a momentum of the race but i received nothing. Maybe my mistake. Perhaps next time the organisers could put something up??
All in all a great race though and i will be returning next year to go all out on the whole course ;o) Date of review: April 2, 2008
