In short: Enjoyable good course with fine organisation In full: Good long race with manageable hills and with organisation as it should be. No complaints or suggestions for improvement. Date of review: January 25, 2006
In short: A good race with a couple of challenging hills on each lap In full: The start was a little way from the car park and race HQ but I found that helped to get the legs warm. I like a longer race to have a few mild hills it gives me a chance to catch up the hares! All in all very friendly and very well organised. Date of review: January 25, 2006
In short: Well done to Yaxley for putting on a great event. First race and first PB of the year. In full: This race has the feel of a small/friendly run, but at the same time is professionally and expertly organised and marshalled. Well done to Yaxley for putting on such a great event.
I wasn't sure what to put for PB potential in the ratings. It's definitely challenging, so if it was a half marathon, then it wouldn't have PB potential. Given that there are so few 15 mile events around, then it has strong PB potential. And I got a PB ! Already looking forward to next year. Date of review: January 24, 2006
In short: Good run on a nice day - got a PB despite moderate hills In full: Worth the trip - long sleaved T shirt is good value. Hills are testing but not hideous. Overall an enjoyable race but the weather helped a lot. The down side is not having any showers available but found the walk back to the car helped to ease the muscles! Having bottled water at water stations would also have been a good investment. Date of review: January 23, 2006
In short: Suggest spending less on the trophies/cups and more on the information for runners, including course profile. That map of the course was a joke. Locals may have known about that last hill, but it came as shock for the first timers Date of review: January 23, 2006
