In short: Excellent race. Definate PB material. In full: 1st time I have run this 1/2 and I can guarantee it won't be the last.
Nice route taking in both urban and rural settings, very friendly marshalls (thanks for all the support)!!!
One small negative, not overjoyed at how the final mile and a half was laid out? Seemed to take forever to complete. (to echo other comments) maybe this could hve been swallowed up elsewhere on the route???? However, don't let that put you off.
Nice medal at completion and managed to 'shatter' my PB!!!! Date of review: October 23, 2007
In short: Good day out - got a PB so, happy with the overall day, although there was some confusion with the timing of the event, other than that friendly and good atmosphere. Date of review: October 22, 2007
In short: a good race!! In full: I dont usually review a race but this one was really enjoyable, flat, very nice scenery, not too crowded and well organised starting from a lovely sports centre. Cheers! Date of review: October 21, 2007
In short: Well organised, I'm surprised more people don't do it In full: Nice route, mostly along a cycle/footpath and very little along a quiet road. A little depressing at the end with an added loop to make the distance.
Nice medal and four water stations (in plastic cups and a little mean with the water)
In short: Good race - scenic, well organised, friendly and almost traffic free. Deserves to be more popular. In full: 'Out & back' (more or less) route primarily on tarmac cycleways up the River Lune from Salt Ayre LC just out of Lancaster City Centre. Starts and finishes on the track, which is always welcome, and there is no slope anywhere on the course with a claim to be a hill.
Only 'gripe' would be the slightly contrived routing towards the end which, in order to make up the distance, requires runners to follow the cycleway past the LC for what feels like forever before doubling back. Personally, I'd have preferred to have the extra distance added somewhere else - maybe a loop on the quayside? Date of review: October 21, 2007
