In short: The cold shrunk the course! Freezing fun though In full: Very friendly and well organised 10k. Simply done, burger van for the spectators and runners and a nice medal in a sports bag.
I only have one gripe and that is the length of the course. Mine and other Garmins made the length nearly 350m short of 10k.
I smashed my PB an got under 50mins for the first time ever with 46:23. I was on for just under 48mins if the course had have been correct length. It only needs the grass section to be moved slightly and the length will be correct.
In short: Good race and well organised - cant say fairer than that! In full: Beddington Park 10k has got it right - medal, goodie bag and good organisation. Just proves that the recipe is easy providing you get the basics right - your peers have a lot to learn from this. Great job! Date of review: November 29, 2010
In short: Excellent race despite the freezing cold! In full: Good communication, well organised, friendly stewards and an enjoyable race all round. I'll be back again next time. Kevin, the results were emailed earlier on this afternoon and I gather will be posted sometime this week on www.suttonsportspromotions.com Date of review: November 28, 2010
In short: A great run In full: Perfect Sunday morning run in a park. Organisation was excellent, marshalls encouraging and the sub-zero weather gave us the impetus to speed up a bit. Four laps around a park may seem boring, but it was a lovely almost flat course, with fewer races at this time of year well worth having a go next year. Date of review: November 28, 2010
In short: Great fun In full: Excellent race, most enjoyable despite the heavy conditions under foot in places. Great organistaion, communication, etc. Friendly marshalls and stewards throughout. Will definitely return for this one again. Date of review: November 22, 2010
