In short: flat race with an upbeat feel; terrific organisation In full: Never been to Scunny before but very pleased to make the effort; organization excellent; apart from toilet queues (no.2's) Warm day and a long walk to the start but this gets the adrenaline flowing and the race itself just about perfect. The marshals and pacers were great and the course itself was pretty and uncomplicated. Nice finish in the stadium and a the t-shirt medal and muffin were very fair reward. Well done North Lincs!

In short: This is the third time I have done this race and every year it gets better. The organisation is second to none and the race marshals were fantastic. Plenty of refreshments, great medal and t-shirt at the end (and the xxl t-shirt is xxl ??), Date of review: May 25, 2016
In short: Flat, fast and friendly! In full: Really good communication and organisation both before and during the race. The start is a bit of a walk from parking so leave yourself plenty of time. There are plenty of toilets at HQ, though obviously busy, there are some portaloos by the start line but quite a queue. Very handy woods on the road which a lot of people sneaked off to for a last minute pee!
Lots of marshalls, who were very friendly and encouraging. Loads of water stations, and the jelly baby zone and sponge zone were a brilliant pick me up.
The course is flat and fast as advertised, a slight hill at 2 miles and then a very short little climb just before you get in the stadium at the end but does not affect the ability to get a PB at all. I think the flattest course I have ever run and the views across the fields are just beautiful.
The finish was great, brilliant atmosphere and the free muffin and goody bag were great for the money. Especially the salt and vinegar crisps, much appreciated!
Would most definitely run again, and would recommend for a seasoned runner or a first timer. Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: Fantastic event, the organisation was superb and the finish at Scunthorpe's football stadium was perfect. In full: Lived up fully to its billing as being fast and friendly. Really top notch organisation for which all involved are to be congratulated. Thoroughly enjoyable despite the very warm day. First time I have run the event but it will now be a fixture in my calendar. Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: Very well organised (pre and post race both excellent) In full: Really enjoyed the event. Very well organized, with meet and finish at the football stadium which can easily accommodate the 1800 runners and friends. Plenty of loos, somewhere warm to gather before and after the race (very important this year as weather was awful). The course is flat and fast. Thought the weather would scupper a PB but knocked 4 mins off my previous best stadium. Plenty of water stations and great to finish in the Stadium. The stadium is very easy to access via motorway links so no delays arriving or leaving. Would definitely like another go next year. Date of review: May 18, 2015
In short: Everything was excellent about the race In full: Have never entered a race that is as well organised as this. What you didnt know at the start wasn't worth knowing. Frequent emails to inform on all that was going on behind the scenes and important information. Marshals were excellent despite the weather they were very supportive and had smiles on their faces. Great finish as well and being the first local runner to the finish had a great welcome into the stadium. Don't know any way that this can be improved. Keep up the good work!!

In short: Except for the long walk to the start an excellent event In full: Except for the long walk to the start and the grass path to get over the road bridge a very good course where PB's should be on the cards. Weather wet and windy on the day but clearly not in the organiser's control. Will certainly do this one again. Date of review: May 9, 2015
