In short: my first race ever!! what an experience. In full: I would like to thank the lady marshal that took me to the end, yes i was the last person but felt very proud to finish, every one was very encouraging, especially those fast ones who overtook us on their second lap, our first. what an achievement. a very friendly and encouraging atmosphere. thank you all Date of review: December 12, 2005
In short: Hard race a real chalenge In full: A tough race with a kiler hill twice! Forget a PB but a good race to increase your personal strength. Will definately go again. Date of review: December 8, 2005
In short: Well organised but could do with a clock at the finish In full: The race was well organised & marshalled and good as part of a training programme, but needs a clock at the race finish & better signs for toilets. Very challenging hill! Date of review: December 6, 2005
In short: My 3rd race as a novice and definately the hardest! In full: I knew 'the hill' would be bad after running downhill for so long at the start - I had no idea that it would be that tough though! Still, a fantastic mornings workout - I really felt that I'd achieved something when I crossed the finish line - I'll definately be back next year - hopefully with a better finish time as well!

In short: Tough! not for the Wimps out there In full: This was my seventh race of the year, by far the toughest and most challenging and very rewarding! I look forward to it next year! Date of review: December 5, 2005
In short: great, tough race In full: My first ever race and what a tough choice it was. That hill really knocked the stuffing out of me (twice!) -but I'll be back. Never having done a race before I have nothing to compare it with but I must say the marshalling seemed suberb -Well done Crowborough Runners. Date of review: December 5, 2005
In short: What goes down comes back up (twice) In full: This was supposed to be my home town race, but that anther story! Even though I know the local area, I still got caught out by the steepness of the hill up Palesgate. To do it twice was a really killer. Despite the hills and the fact that I arrived late & didn’t have time for a warm up, I was still quite pleased was my finishing time.
A special mention for the organisation of the race, which was very well marshalled. I don’t think I’ve ever seen as many marshals before on a half marathon course before let alone a 10K.
