In short: Hard in places In full: First 2k up hill then fairly flat till about 6k then it seems to be a constant hill till 9k then it's for a sprint finish, first time with this event but even though I didn't achieve a PB it was very well organised with the marshals & public there to push you along. Will be entering again next, well done to the Billericay Striders. Date of review: November 9, 2013
In short: Great race, no PB potential, but well organised, well supported, scenic run! In full: 1st time running this race for me. Challenging first 3k up the hills, but after that it's pretty flat, with a sprint to the finish for a well earned Mars bar!!
Well organised, great marshalling and good traffic management to ensure runners safety throughout the race.
And there was plenty of support on the course to cheer you round.
Would definitely recommend this race to anyone regardless of ability. Date of review: November 7, 2013
In short: Good race with a great route! In full: Nice out of town route along country roads, perfect for a sunday morning. Some small hills about but nothing over the top. Must say the Marshals at this event were awesome, so many of them about and all giving you a cheer!! 1 small thing, no bag drop to look after you stuff during the race. Maybe something to consider next year maybe? I will definatley consider this race again next year! Date of review: November 7, 2013
In short: Great race run by a great club. A+ In full: What a truly magnificent race. The course is good and not overly challenging, one hill at the start and then it's down hill from there. The marshals are happy and very friendly and the welcome extended was really good. Everybody was happy and really pleased to see you there. One top mark in your calendar for sure. Well done Striders, what a great club and what a great race. Date of review: November 7, 2013
