In short: Very good small race In full: Nice Race. 10k I feel was called far too quick as 5k started late, was in the toilet when we were being called. Mabye chip timing and start zones could be introduced to stop plodders hanging around at the front obstructing serious runners. Other than that it was scenic, organized well and great value for money this race has potential to be huge. The medal was better than those from races ive paid twice as much to enter. I shaved 20 seconds off my PB so can't complain. Nice work race organisers! Date of review: October 1, 2011
In short: Small race, well organised, with huge potential In full: Very well organised and a bargain for £10. Got a medal that wasn't expected and free drinks and snacks afterwards. A really scenic course and at least one challenging uphill section, but the downhill stretch compensates nicely.
I will definately be going back if it's run again.
Perfect as it is, chip timing would be nice if you get any bigger, but not essential. My only other constructive comment would be to add the route and elevation profile to the website to help first time runners judge how much energy to save for the uphills. For some reason I was expecting a final hill climb that wasn't there so finished with a bit of energy in reserve.
Great friendly event, thanks to the organisers and everyone who helped marshall and support :-) Date of review: September 19, 2011
In short: Well done! An excellent little race In full: Very well done - plenty of water at the stations and very well marshalled - with lots of encouragement. Luckily the sun came out and made the work a little less difficult! Will be back next year. Date of review: September 18, 2011
