In short: Fast PB course In full: I ran 4 10ks in this series and one 5k race. All very well organised and great, relaxed atmosphere. Got steadily faster at each race. Pleased with technical tshirt for entering at least 3 races. Date of review: April 14, 2013
In short: Good training races to test fitness. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere! In full: I completed two of the series races this year. The support and encouragement from the marshals was brilliant on both occasions, despite the weather conditions.
Instead of doing the same old club run every week, I tried these races to test my speed over an accurate 10K course. I found there was a good mix of abilities and plenty of space on the track while running. Yes there are a few areas of the circuit which are quite dark, but I never find it that much of a problem.
There's a cafe right by the start/finish area for sheltering in afterwards so spectators are well catered for as well. Date of review: April 11, 2013
In short: Well organised, good value races - friendly atmosphere In full: Did 4 of the races. Can be a bit boring doing laps, but its a challenge in the dark (although majority of course floodlit) and always a good friendly atmosphere. Good venue and facilities. Nice technical t shirt (rear design) for those who did 3 races or more! Date of review: April 11, 2013
In short: Welcome addition to running events in Kent In full: I signed up for the 10k series to check up on my progress for a marathon in spring, and four laps of the Cyclopark offers an undulating but not taxing course, with great potential for PBs (trying to keep up with all the club runners knocked four minutes off mine!). One minor criticism, a few hundred metres at one end of the course has no floodlights and is therefore very dark, but to the organisers' credit, they made every effort to install some temporary lighting so we all knew where we were going.
They were trialing chip timing in the January race, which is a welcome addition and only adds to its good value. Date of review: January 16, 2013
In short: Loved this race In full: over a hundred people total for the races - friendly atmosphere, great facilities, excellent cafe and fast course. Couldnt ask for more1 Date of review: November 14, 2012
