In short: Excellent organisation. The course is undulating on quiet country lanes. The marshalls were friendly. The goody bag and momento was worth the effort of running 10 miles. I'll be back next year Date of review: February 4, 2011
In short: First time and will be back! In full: First time at this event and I enjoyed it! Very well organised, big thanks to the marshalls, very encouraging, particularly enjoyed the music at mile 6/8, can I put in a request for The Killers next year! Loved the momento, the metal running shoe, it now has pride of place on my bookshelf! Date of review: February 2, 2011
In short: Great race, friendly and well organised In full: Very good race to liven up January. It stayed dry, with almost no wind. Excellent organisation and marshalling. Only one niggle: not sure a Mars Bar and packet of crisps were the best choice for the goody bag (I ate them though!). Otherwise, top marks Date of review: January 31, 2011
In short: Well organised run and great course In full: Really glad I ran this race. Well organised from start to finish, very scenic course, well marshalled with a special big thanks to the two Marshall's jumping up and down shouting encouragement with Eye of The Tiger blaring out, great work, loved it!
The course is challenging, there is not one individual steep hill just smaller ones but frequent over the distance with enough to make you puff hard. There is a great chance of a PB too although you may feel the back of your calves the next day if aiming for it!
Really quiet country lane course with hardly any traffic, slightly chilly on the day but dry, would be a challenge on a windy one. Nice momento at the end of the race and a goody bag too.
Tea and cakes from the village hall for sale as well as a BBQ for hot dogs etc at the end.
Well done to all involved in organising this race, I had a great time.
In short: Well organised event, the only problem could be January weather In full: A very nice, community-feeling event. Lots of marshalls, some scenery (riverfront was unexpected), very quiet roads - well, it is Norfolk after all. The weather was quite peaceful in 2011, no complaints. A souvenir in the goody bag is perhaps not in the best taste, unless you like keeping cast models of trainers in a display cabinet. Overall - a fairly pleasant way to spend a Sunday in January.
