In short: Brilliant - Not too many entrants. Nice incline to half way, then downhill for 3k. Great conditions for Feb, chip timing, bananas and a PB mean i'll do it again. Watch the traffic - I nearly got taken out by a 4x4 at the finish. Date of review: March 18, 2007
In short: as a beginner found everything excellent including my PB BUT very disappointed that my size T-shirt was unavailable, after all they were pre-ordered. Would suggest to organisers they mark peoples numbers with their chosen size so L/ XL not left Date of review: February 14, 2007
In short: My first race so can't compare. overall I thought very good! In full: this was my first race which i found very easy and enjoyable, possibly thinking now I should have done a harder one to start with as now have to beat my time next time possibly with a harder course! this course is very easy!

In short: Hard to concentrate at times given the beauty of Dewsburys famous landmarks In full: Taking in such historic landmarks, as legends night club, various kebab restaurants, the brilliant new Lidl superstore and Tescos at Batley, this race offers the ultimate in racing backdrops.
Additional excitement is offered from the occasional mock sports car, with huge Perspex spoilers and alloys, which may pop out from the numerous hidden side streets. Pumping out some reet tunes and ripping bass lines from their high power Argos stereos, you’ll relish the opportunity to try and avoid these beauties whilst running at speed.
In short: Really enjoyed it, although we were at the back of the field and they ran out of water and were given a used bottle which wasn't very nice. Also would have been nice to have a medium T-Shirt, guess we will have to run faster! Date of review: February 7, 2007
In short: Good for PBs - but where's the water for people over 50mins? In full: Good fast course, but uninspiring scenery! However, I was really miffed when I realised they had run out of water for the 50+ mins end of the field - I was handed a second hand bottle that had already been scuffed from being thrown down on the road... NOT nice. Those of us that run a 60 min 10k deserve the same treatment as those who are faster - we all pay the same entry fee! Date of review: February 7, 2007
