In short: Enjoyable course with nice long stretches of flat fast parts but also some challenging hills which you do 3times. Definitely doing it again. Good atmosphere finishing inside Don Valley Stadium. Beautiful day hundreds of people what else could you ask In full: 3 laps in and around don valley stadium. After the first lap it helps to pace yourself for the next two knowing when to speed up or slow down. Some tough hills which test you especially by the 2nd and 3rd time round. Buzzing atmosphere every time you came into the stadium. Sun was out so was a few hundred spectators. Well organised event with water stations and first aid along the route. Good banter and rivalry between both universities. You either had a yellow or red t-shirt in your race pack depending which team you were on. Defiantly doing it again and I recommend this 10k for all abilities. Date of review: March 27, 2012
In short: It was fun, the university rivalry made it special, well organised, nice T shirt In full: Ran this with my son, we are both Sheffield University Students, it was well organised, fun and there was a great atmosphere. Not too keen on the 3 lap idea, but it was a decent course with a couple of challenging little hills. The brass band was a lovely touch, and the Don valley Stadium is a really nice place to start and finish, will be back for the Sheffield half marathon in May. Date of review: March 25, 2012
In short: Well organised & rather quick In full: Well organised, great atmosphere and quick course.
Only 2 small points let it down - the obscenely small cups used at the water stations (but at least there were 2 of them) and the bridge giving people motion sickness as everyone runs over it & makes it 'wave' but that was very quickly over.
Overall - very good, would do it again :) Date of review: March 25, 2012
