In short: Shambles In full: Congested start, dangerous finish and marshals didn't know what was happening. What's happened to the results? A money making exercise for the Rotary Club. Let a running club organise it. Avoid. Date of review: July 4, 2013
In short: HEATWAVE made dfficult running In full: The race was ok, course was very accurate and there were no major issues. The race started on time. The heat was almost unbearable for me. Had it been cooler, i would have been much happier with my finish time but that's beyond anyones control. Make it a bit earlier perhaps?
The only issues for me was the control of the traffic, i was under the impression it was traffic free but felt somewhat under a lot of pressure when an Audi was sitting on my arse trying to pass.
Overall, a challenging HOT race Date of review: July 1, 2013
In short: Very hard work in the hot sun! Didn't get lost on the 2nd lap due to the presence of the marshalls and the fact that I looked at the map before I ran. Also managed to guess that as my entry didnt arrive in the post, it might be pick up on the day. Date of review: July 1, 2013
In short: The organisers should have informed entrants that numbers were to be collected on the day, as they have been sent out in previous years. There was no mention of this on the website. In full: The traffic situation needs sorting out. There were not enough marshals, and those that were there were no doing anything about the many cars on the route, turning into and out of side roads and blocking the running route. Cars were even driving. unmarshalled, down the narrow road which the runners were running up to the finish, and which was crowded with spectators too. This needs to change - it was dangerous.
