In short: Fast course - fantastic medal - a great day out. In full: I enjoyed this one - I thought that 4 laps of a circa 3 mile course might get boring but the wind made it interesting, bringing you to a virtual standstill running into it, but flying along with little effort on the return. The medal is exceptional. well marshalled - Well done Bexhill - If you're organising it next year, I'll definitely enter again!
In short: Flat course, beginner friendly, lovely marshalls. In full: This was my first ever organised run of any kind. Well organised and friendly. The marshalls were superb and really kept me going with their encouragement. The course was very beginner friendly but the force of the wind was unreal. Date of review: November 16, 2008
In short: Really good race. In full: Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Loved the kids races, cakes, chip timing, great marshalls, friendly atmosphere. Improve the pre-race info and directions (even with the website map managed to get lost on the way) and turn off the wind and I'll be back. Thanks Bexhill! Date of review: November 12, 2008
In short: Bracing sea breezes In full: Autumnal sea breezes, De La Warr Pavilion, excellent medal and shirt with fantastic cakes and fruit at the end what else could sunny Bexhill offer? The route did become samey but I too liked the fact that you could see the leaders humiliating you and that there was always someone who looked worse than you even if they were faring better coming in the opposite direction.

In short: Bracing sea wind.. In full: ..made this run very special. As a city dweller, i was more than happy to slog it out in the wind and by the sea. Good straight forward course, and excellent stewards. Cakes at the end too were perfect. See you next year. Date of review: November 11, 2008
In short: All hail the gale. In full: Great Marshall Support, good to watch the leaders ripping up the pavements coming back in the opposite direction, beautiful medal (one of the nicest i've seen), good grub and proper chip timing. Only criticism would be that the course could get a little repetitous, few little tweaks to the organisation needed to keep runners informed. Wind resitance made it tough, i was frightened to spit in case the head-on wind created a backwards gob-missile. Date of review: November 10, 2008
