In short: Nice flat course in good setting In full: This was a good 10k race for beginners as I am fairly new to running and was using this as part of my training for the B'ham half marathon. Was quite pleased with 44.29 mins.
Fairly flat course around Cannon Hill Park which is a nice place to run.
Only real complaint was the confusion over the location of the finish line as myself and a few other runners seemed to think this was in front of the tea rooms when in fact it was another 200m+. Made my sprint for the line significantly longer than I would have liked ;-) Could perhaps do with a 500m to go sign or a more obvious finish that can be seen on approach rather than a chalk line on the floor after a tight bend?
Anyone know when and where the results are published? An official told me that they would be available online the evening of the race - but I can't find them?? Date of review: September 21, 2009
In short: Well organised friendly race. In full: First time entering this race. Friendly atmosphere, and well organised and marshalled. Largely flat course but watch out for the odd stray dog!! Date of review: September 21, 2009
In short: Two laps of a largely flat course in a Birmingham park In full: Two laps including an out-and-back section means you get to see how the rest of the field are doing. There was one turn round a post but otherwise a fast course. Cakes and squash always welcome and a nice little goody bag with medal. Impressed. PB was a bonus, of course...
