In short: Not a PB, but a course PB at least! In full: It was a glorious day, but not as hot as last year so it was a course PB for me. That said it was a lot slower than my road PB, but I expected that.
The organisation was great as usual - thanks Reg and Karen.
If you like the course but fancy a greater challenge come back on December 5th for Edwinstowe 10k. Last year it was a freezing, icy mudbath but still fun! Date of review: July 26, 2010
In full: Great organisation from 2pointb. Course was mildly challenging, managed a 10K PB. Very enjoyable morning out for the family with a very pleasant start time. Kids enjoyed the fun run. Thank you to all involved. Date of review: July 19, 2010
In short: Pleasantly located, well organised and good value undulating trail run In full: Very nice location in Sherwood forest. The course is up and down but has no major hills and is all on stoney trails. Expect to be at least 1.5-2 minutes slower than on a 10k road race. Faultless organisation. Highly recommended, a nice change from road races. Date of review: July 19, 2010
In short: An enjoyable experience! In full: We happened to be in the area this week end, so decided to see if any local races were being run!I'm glad we decided upon Sherwood Pines. It's not a pb course but the fact it's a trail race should tell anyone this. However, it's traffic free, run on a great surface and reasonably challenging. Certainly good value for money. If we happen to be in Nottingham this time next year . . . we'd do it again! Date of review: July 18, 2010
In short: 1st timer + loved it. In full: after a few local 10k road races wanted to get into trail running so had a go at this and wow what a great race some hard hills to run up but loved it and will be back next year. Date of review: July 18, 2010
In short: Well organised, excellently marshalled, fun day out. In full: My first 10km .... hilly in places. Very well marshalled, excellent facilities. Hubbie and daughter definitely recommend the cafe!
:rollseyes: at the commentator who said I looked like a pink highlighter pen, LOL!
Would definitely do it again :) Date of review: July 18, 2010
In short: This is always a great race ! If you're bored with road running and want to try a trail race, this is a great initiation into trail running In full: Loads of good points about this race : 1/Smooth organisation 2/Good support, especially on the sprint to the line 3/Smiling marshalls 4/Testing but not painful 5/Lovely forest venue
Added to this, the kids races afterwards make it a good family day out - over the last few years,both my kids have used this as their first experience of racing and are now hooked.Much better than a Sunday with the X-Box! Also, if you are used to the usual Sunday routine of "do your race then get straight back in your car", its a pleasant change to see everyone hanging around either having picnics or lunch in the Cafe.
In summary - thanks Reg & Karen, great day out, you made NOTFAST runners very happy today, see you next year ! Date of review: July 18, 2010
