In short: A nice challenging run very enjoyable well marshalled In full: Generally a well organised event bit of confusion with timing on presentation otherwise rate it as an excellent event very nice t shirt Date of review: June 18, 2013
In short: Never fails to disappoint In full: My 3rd successive year at this race and as usual it is a great local, well supported and organised event.
A challenging course, and yes you do have to save yourself for the 9th KM which isn't necessarily a steep ascent but it certainly goes on a long way and will take it out of you if you go off too quickly at the start. But this isn't the only uphill. There's a bit of a climb needed at around 3k and a fairly tough one at 5k just before you cross through the park.
There is ample parking around the town centre if you allow plenty of time and a decent goody bad with a technical t-shirt thrown in - A vast improvement on last years offering.
Instant results from the chip-timing van and a 4.3k fun-run as well as a 1m shorter run make this a great event for all abilities.
Well done as ever Aldridge RC. Will look out for next years race date and book it in the diary. Date of review: June 14, 2013
In short: Challenging and rewarding In full: Full of hills and undulations, the course elevation profile should be heeded before registering for this 10k. Probably not PB potential for regular runners or those nearer the back. A challenging run nonetheless for most and the "sting in the tail" sure delivered.
Goodie bag was poor with just a technical t-shirt and a cereal bar. Would have preferred a medal but hey-ho. Date of review: June 9, 2013
