In short: Manky weather but a fast, interesting course In full: As we all decided to leave the car park at once it was a bit slow going. Fair play to the marshall who thought to turn the entrance into an exit. Date of review: March 12, 2013
In short: Perfectly flat makes for very quick run In full: Great run on a very cold day but that didnt dampen spirits. Perfectly flat leads to a very quick run. A course record for me personnly beating last years time by 30 seconds. Really enjoyed this run despite the cold weather. I will be back next year. Date of review: March 10, 2013
In short: Superb race, why would anybody moan this year? In full: I got a pb by nearly a minute, the weather was freezing but everyone was still smiling. Parking was fine, a massive field, some cars were skidding but that was due to the weather.
The course was two laps very flat and fast and the distance was spot on, i'll be doing this again next year for sure.
There were no issues with the start, this is the fastest 10k race i've ever done, nailed on pb race! Date of review: March 10, 2013
In short: More Parking issues In full: Hoped it would have been sorted from last year, but parking was challenging again. The rain and a field made it worse than last year but luckily a quicker time meant I did not suffer the worst.
Course is a solid course and good fun, but not sure its a PB'er.
The goodie bag is awful, £16 for an (virtually) empty bag with a wagon wheel in it (which I thought was very tasty), and a sponsor water bottle. Runners were very friendly but quite a few scowls from the locals who yet again seem surprised to see a herd of runners going through their village.
I think it has lots of potential, but still held back by lack of organisation, and the worst goody bag I have ever received. Date of review: March 10, 2013
