In short: Great event with a couple of nice climbs thrown in! In full: CONAC do put on a decent race and this one is no exception. Great marshalling, good race HQ and a good medal and goody bag make this a good race. Earlier start time of 9am didn't deter plenty of spectactors from turning up. Not ideal PB territory because the climbs can catch you out but I run this route near enough every week because it's right by my work so I was well prepared. The finish on a gravel car park is not ideal as I nearly went over hitting the sharp turn in to it at speed but can see why they have to do it. Well worth entering, fills up every year.

In short: Excellent organisation as always by CONAC In full: Well organised at the Ski-Club with easy parking at the nearby county hall. The 2 lap race includes the long hill up through Trowse twice , but coming down through the Park towards the finish is a great feeling especially as I knew I was nearly 3 minutes inside my PB. A great memorable race, well done CONAC. Date of review: April 15, 2012
In short: A very enjoyable two lap race. Well done Norwich In full: This was the first time I did this race coming up from Essex for the weekend thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again. The organisation was excellent, with good parking facilities, with friendly and helpful marshalls. Medal and goody bag was very good with none of those useless leaflets. Well done Norwich Date of review: April 10, 2012
In short: Nicely organised, clubby two lap race in a quiet corner of Norwich with views of Whitlingham Broad In full: Welldone to CONAC for the organisation of this race. You made it look easy and we all know it's not!
The Snowsports centre makes a comfortable base with changing and baggage facilities and chip timing is unusual for a club-race.
The two-lap course felt tougher than I expected. A long, long uphill drag (twice!) was challenging. The downhill a nice relief.
Water station, goody bag, medal online results etc. all nicely done belying some hard work behind the scenes I'm sure.
I was on my own and visiting from afar so appreciated the support from the small band of spectators near the Start and Finish. Date of review: April 10, 2012
In short: Great new course! In full: I always do this race as I love running in the trowse!this year they changed the course a little still with the big hill though! I don't do this race to get a pb but you always know the race will run like clockwork as the city of Norwich team always put on a good race! Great day great turn out from the locals and great goody bag! I will always do it this race as its always enjoyable! Date of review: April 9, 2012
In short: Fantastic In full: This was my first ever race and it got me hooked! It seemed very well organised, like clockwork! Apart from a hill (horrible in my opinion!) on both laps, it's quite a simple and easy course.
Will definitely do it again next year, and the year after! Date of review: April 9, 2012
In short: Nicely organised, good value and a challenging little course to boot. In full: My first time at Trowse, and felt very welcome. The twice-traversed hill is not to be underestimated, and this is a varied course that's reasonably undulating - it won't scupper your PB attempt but certainly provides a challenge. The crowds were great, marshals helpful and the whole thing was beautifully organised.
Nice medal and bag of goodies - gratefully received - to cap it all off at the end. Highly recommended race, kudos to CONAC for running a cracking show. Date of review: April 8, 2012
