In full: Good value for money and great family friendly atmosphere. Plenty of free parking although can be queues at the end getting out. Free pre and post race massage. The start is abit of a free for all with not pacing and spent most of the first mile running on the grass verge or avoiding people. Could have done with some portaloos along the course as I was busting.
I was quite pleased with my t shirt at the end but there was a glass paper weight the last time I did it. Date of review: August 18, 2011
In short: Excellent race - shame about the t-shirt and lack of medal In full: Really enjoyed it again this year, but was disappointed by the t-shirt we were given (Fruit of the Loom) and lack of a medal (last year we got a trainer trophy). Date of review: July 7, 2011
In short: good waterfront fast 10k, PB potential In full: Entered this race as it's on our club championships this year. Normally wouldn't travel this distance just for 10K. Well organised, plenty of parking and toilets. Chip timing thankfully. Only downside is yet another cheap cotton t-shirt none of us need or want as the memento. Great scenery but it's exposed so expect strong head winds. Toughest undulation comes at 8k then you run back over it again before you show off your downhill sprint to finish line. There's also half and full marathon on this waterfront. Date of review: June 24, 2011
In short: Flat(ish) course in pleasant surroundings - what else do you need? In full: This is the second time I've run the 10k and its a nice event. The organisation is smooth with free parking alongside the start and the energetic announcer helping the atmosphere. The course itself is along the millenium coastal path so has some nice views of North Gower etc. and is also traffic free (except for the odd walker or cyclist). There's a couple of small rises in the course that are steep enough to hurt, but not big enough to qualify as hills. Its a small event and the support is limited to the start/finish area, which you also passed through after about 8km, so the atmosphere is low-key.
