In short: Enjoyable race In full: Mile marker seemed out for the 3rd mile, but a good race, nice pace and good terrain. Also recieved a lovely trophy on completing for the 65th anniversary of the race. Date of review: September 20, 2011
In short: An excellent race especially if you want a PB In full: Again a well organisied event, but on the 65th anniversary It was always going to be. Shame people were still arriving at 10:50 and expecting that not to cause a problem, but the organisers were kind and delayed the start 15mins, which given it was a pleasant day did cause any great issue with those of us who arrive on time. Then excellent running throughout flat fast course with only a slight breeze this year resulting in the national standard for 5 miles for the first time. What a wonderful momento too.

In short: Pan flat 5 miler offering excellent VFM In full: The start was a bit tight, but fine once we were off the track. The course is very flat with plenty of PB potential as long as it isn't too windy (it wasn't).
The 15 minute delay to the start didn't bother me. The venue, organisation and marshalls were excellent.
Good prize for the 65th aniversary of the race, not bad for a tenner. Date of review: September 18, 2011

In full: no problems with parking, but we did get there early. Great facilities and at least those watching had somewhere to get a drink etc. I found the route fine it was my first time running this race, I would pay more for a chip for accurate timing but would do this race again Date of review: September 18, 2011
