In short: Well organised, encouraging marshals In full: This is an excellent race for this time of year. It launches you nicely into the 'long' racing season, and is quite a challenges, with the hills coming regularly. There are plenty of stretches in the race that enable you to get into a good rhythm, and for the second year in a row I enjoyed the experience.
The organisation is good, and the marshals very friendly and encouraging.
The only beef: lack of showers. Date of review: January 31, 2011
In short: Worthwhile! In full: Nicest touch had to be at the crossroads on the second lap when the marshalls shouted your name using the entry numbers to give you support- much appreciated! Great race and am looking forward to doing it again next year. Date of review: January 28, 2011
In short: A good course, great marshalls, a challange, and 1st race next year. In full: Loved this course, had its ups and downs. The final uphill though, done me in. Not enough, as for me to finish on the home straight, and get a better than expected time. Well done to all the marshalls, and a great tee-shirt to add. See you 2012 Date of review: January 26, 2011
In short: I still ache ......... In full: A great event. Technical tee shirt a triumph. Organisation 100%. Last hill on second lap did for me. 1 year older than last year and finished 1 second slower. Must remember to train harder next time (NEXT TIME? I must be bonkers). Excellent preparation for London.
