In short: perfect organisation and good for beginners In full: perfect organisation and a well ran event. From arriving in the car park there is a marshall on every corner to make sure you get to the HQ and then from there every turn or junction during the race is marshalled with enthusiastic support. A real village event feel Perfect for a beginner runner but the course is fast enough for the more experienced. Goody bag was very good, a book, gingerbread biscuits, another snack, water, tech t-shirt.
a must return event! Date of review: March 5, 2013
In short: A community spirited, professionally organised, 10k country lane road race (in one sentence!)! In full: Excellent comms, extremely well organised - puts more expensive larger scale events to shame. Neat touches include: - car parking with well signed and marshalled routes to HQ - pin holes in the vest numbers - baggage drop - pre race safety brief from race director - friendly marshalls and supports in numerous supply - quiet and scenic country lanes - excellent snack menu (although the gentle waft of bacon butty as you're picking up your race number - bit unfair, surely no one can run on a bacon butty?)
One negative (but restricted by space) - narrow run-in for the finish, difficult to overtake in the final sprint. Date of review: March 4, 2013
In short: Picture Postcard scenery with potential for PB's. In full: Fantastic base at High Legh Primary School meant getting the administration of race numbers etc a doddle. The improved toilet situation was helpful but still they could have more! Wonderful organisation and a real sense of victory at the end. WELL DONE Date of review: March 4, 2013
In full: A big thanks to HLCA and Lymm Runners for a great race. Very well organised and very professional. Lovely course with friendly and encouraging marshalls. Well worth the 400 mile round trip to run!! Date of review: March 3, 2013
In short: Well organised, glorious sunshine today helped. Friendly marshalls. In full: Great to have the facilities of the school hall before and after to shelter, have a cup of tea etc. etc. Date of review: March 3, 2013
In short: Lovely friendly race In full: First time I have done this. Very enjoyable run, course generally flat and scenic on quiet country roads. Much of the last 2k is on a pavement by a busier road but that's the only quibble. The organisation is excellent and the whole atmosphere very friendly - if this was my first 10k it would be a perfect place to start. Marshals and locals were all very encouraging by the roadside. Glorious sunshine helped as well! Date of review: March 3, 2013
