In short: A good day out In full: Five well organised childrens races in the morning, followed by a 5k fun run. 10k in afternoon with over 1000 runners from sub 30min to over the hour. 5k and Crildren's Minithons can be entered on race day. Day can be HOT Date of review: May 25, 2008
In short: Excellent first-time race In full: This was my first proper 10K race - good organisation, great t-shirt, excellent support all the way round. It was hot but the water stations were well marshalled.Would highly recommend. Date of review: June 8, 2007
In short: Very hot!! In full: Event was very well organised, in a great location, well marshalled and the t shirt was the best I've got for a long time. However the 2pm start is not ideal. Not only does it mean you're whole day is affected, if the weather is hot like this weekend then 2pm is probably the worst time to be running, as proved to be the case on Sunday. The heat certainly took its toll on most people who took part. The beer tent was certainly a sight for sore eyes at the end of the race. Date of review: June 6, 2007
In short: Family day out In full: Excellent organisation. extra water station a very good idea. very hot so I agree with others about the start time. Excellent entertainment for kids throughout the day. Also kids races and a 5K fun run. PB potential if not so hot. Overall a very enjoyable day. Date of review: June 4, 2007
In short: Great atmosphere but an earlier start would be good! In full: Really looked forward to this race, after doing the Purbeck 10k. Wanted to beat my previous time, but found the heat put paid to that - probably my hottest race to date - even the Swanage Half didn't seem so painful last year! Organisation and support around the course was excellent and nice to have the crowds cheering you on! Maybe a change in race time could be considered - earlier in the morning would be ideal! Will have a go next year though, and thought the T-shirt was great. Am proudly wearing it today! Date of review: June 4, 2007
In short: Superbly organised yet again In full: Good course, good marshalling, superb organisation. The extra water station this year was a brilliant move. It's hot more often than it's not, so perhaps this can be a permanent part of the event?
This is one of the best races I do, well done to the team. Date of review: June 4, 2007
