In short: Suitable for all In full: Run this race as my first 10k and really enjoyed it. The weather held just long enough for me to finish. A smaller turnout than I expected (only 133 I think). Organisation was fine, stewards offered encouragement along the way and the smallish crowd provided plenty of cheering at the end. Partly on grass and the remainder along the sea wall so no problems there. The race was for a very good cause so I'm glad I done it, but I would like to see some more advertising (posters etc)locally as the turnout seemed a bit low. Date of review: June 10, 2012

In short: Great local race - Even the weather behaved itself! In full: Lovely local race. I agree with my sisters comment below. Running mojo had got up and gone since London Marathon but this nice race got the old mojo back. Nice atmosphere at the finish. Will do it again next year. Nice support from a group of 3 front runners who on their warm down run in with us and were very encouraging and charming! Made us feel like proper runners.
In short: Lovely local race. In full: I had lost my running mo jo since doing London Marathon but found it when running this race. Loved that it was local lovely to see all the support and the extras.....will be back next year. Thanks to the marshalls and the sea cadets loved seeing the life boat tracking the runners :) Date of review: May 29, 2011

In short: A good effort for this first time race. Nice setting, weather was kind too. BBQ and band were a nice touch. Always fun having a kids race too. My family and friends had a lovely Friday night - thanks, see you 2012. Date of review: May 28, 2011
In short: Good fast race route. In full: Would suggest better prices for winner, second and third. Money price plus wine. Gold medals for first three runners. The Organisers should do some research and see what they do in other countries. South Africa is a good example. Date of review: May 28, 2011
In short: A welcome new race with PB potential and for a good cause In full: Good organisation, great atmosphere and lovely weather made for a good evening race. I loved running out and watching the lifeboat track the runners from the sea. Terrain was mixed, rough for first and last km and then smooth running on promenade. Shame that someone decided to park their car on the course at 3km which made for a interesting bottleneck and the finish line wasn't clear, but overall I really enjoyed the race and will be back next year. Nice work, Nice Work! Date of review: May 28, 2011
