In short: excelent my 1st 10k In full: had a fun day with my family a bit windy on the way back which made the second 5k hard work but thouroghly enjoyed the day and will be back next year to smash my time hopefully Date of review: September 23, 2006
In short: Great low key event In full: A great little race in a terrific location. There is a price to be paid for the scenery 'though, if there is any wind at all you will suffer on the way back. The value is outstanding ( compare with Liverpool 10k - more than twice the price and no T shirt ) and all money going to a great cause. I'd be a bit cautious with the PB's. I feel the course may be a couple of hundred meteres short. Date of review: September 23, 2006
In short: Great run, in a fantastic location In full: I really like this course and use part of that course for most of my training runs. The best thing about this event for me is it gives me a well-marked 10k course close to home to help my training.
The course itself has everything. Its flat and mostly on concrete which is good. The few hills that exist are short and steep so give you potential to put a bit of effort in. There are some country-style parts of the course which adds to the fun for me.
The organisation of this event is always great and you can tell the organisers put a lot of effort into making it a great day.
I'm looking forward to it again next year. Date of review: September 10, 2006
In short: Really entertaining particularly the off road bits! But what a head wind... In full: Really lovely scenery and alot of fun as the course changes from road to gravel to off-road and back again. Actually made me laugh as I was running. I wasn't quite expecting the head wind to be as strong as it was on the last 5k and at times it can feel like you're running just to stay stationary but I still got a PB - must have been the tail wind for the first 5k that helped me...

In short: challenging race! In full: Id definitely recommend running a slow first 5k on this one, as the way back is definitely tougher and very windy! good race tho, only criticism was i was unsure which way to go in one or 2 places so maybe the odd extra sign or marshall needed, but really enjoyed it overall...
