In short: Hard but rewarding In full: My first ten-miler. Hard hill at 2 1/2 miles, but you're pretty fresh then. The hill at 8 miles is a devil. That's where I lost all the time I had gained. Nice T shirt, and plenty of water, fruit juice and bananas at the finish. Missed the awards-giving. It just seemed to happen, with no warning. Date of review: November 23, 2010
In short: So local for me it would be rude to miss In full: I live 400 yards from the start so get the most perfect race prep possible, lay in, leisurely breakfast, potter about aimlessly than walk to venue.
Excellent running weather this year, cool and hardly any breeze. Its a 10 miler with a bit of challenge as you climb away from the venue and again a bit of a hill at about 8 miles, but there are some very quick miles as well as you lose the height gained early.
Well marshalled and organised. Good tshirt this year as well as fruit juice, water and banana at the finish. I know I will be back for more next November. Date of review: November 22, 2010
